I will admit, I’m a wait-to-the-last minute person when it comes to buying gifts. I have good intentions and even go as far as making mental and physical notes throughout the year as my love ones mention or intentionally drop hints on what they must have or would like to own. And even with this “plan ahead” mentality, I still find myself sitting less than two weeks from Father’s Day with no gift. But wait! I’ve got something else up my sleeve that is far from the traditional.

This year I decided to not do what my husband would expect me to do. I’m not going to purchase a replacement part for his 1971 Challenger that he’s been restoring for a few years now, nor will I buy him a new game for his XBOX, and I’m certainly not taking him out to eat which is way more fun for me than it is for him. This year we are heading out to the track to experience Fittipaldi Exotic Driving at MSR Houston!

The fleet is pretty impressive with options including a Lamborghini Superleggera LP570-4, Ferrari 430 Scuderia, Lamborghini Balboni Edition LP550-2, Nissan GT-R, Porsche 911 Carrera S 991, and a Porsche Cayman R Racecar. When my husband found out where we were going, he was like a kid in a candy story perusing the website as he selected his supercar for the afternoon. He has chosen to jump behind the wheel of the Lambo Superleggera, and I don’t blame him. This Italian crafted beauty goes 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds!

So how will I keep myself entertained as my husband has the time of his life? There was no way I was getting behind the wheel myself but when I found out about the Race Rides, my eyebrows raised just a bit. I’ve never been a big adrenaline rush kinda girl, but I can say I was excited about the possibility of experiencing “exotic driving” minus the pressure. With the Race Rides, you are the passenger and you are driven around the track by a professional driver. This will definitely fulfill your need for speed and you’ll look pretty cool doing it.

So don’t feel bad if you haven’t purchased that neck tie just yet. Fittipaldi is offering a few amazing deals for Father’s Day. If you purchase any time before June 19th, you will receive a 20% discount at checkout. Gift certificates purchased prior to Father’s Day will receive an added value of 20% off the purchase price. There is even a Father + Son/Daughter package that gives you an opportunity to book an experience for both of you (20% discount still applies) and they’ll throw in a free Race Ride. Sweet!
