Speed Vegas The Need for Speed

[05/01/16] 

So when you were a little lad, there’s even money that you, like many of your little-lad mates, wanted to be a race car driver.

The speed, the adrenalin, the adventure, and the pageantry of the racing scene is enough to seduce most would-be gearheads – remember this was the era of Top Gun and Days of Thunder and that awesome Audi scene in Ronin, when it was all about a close encounter with speed and not an endless car chase sequence starring a drooling Vin Diesel.

Time to live your childhood fantasy, with SpeedVegas, which opens in March and is now accepting reservations. This 100-acre complex just off the strip features a 2.4-kilometer Formula One-inspired track on which you’ll race everything from a Shelby Mustang GT500 and an Audi R8 V-10, through to a Ferrari 458 Italia or a Lamborghini Aventador. The ultimate pre-festivities addition to a bachelor’s party or weekend away add-on, the centre offers both day and night driving for anyone with a valid international licence, and while you rip your way around the course, your mates can either grace your rear vision mirror or watch on from an outdoor observation deck.

"If you’re not first, you’re last, " -- Ricky Bobby, Talladega Nights
