From the founders of the Exotics Racing supercar experience comes a brand new take on motorsport. It’s racing simply made easy. The arrive-and-drive EXR Racing Series, offers a ride and drive without any of the hassle of having to invest in a car and hire a team. It is a turn-key, professional race experience.
“We’re handling everything so you can just show up and drive,” said series co-founder Romain Thievin. “We want to make sure all you’re worrying about at the track is racing.”
Thievin and David Perisset, decided to create the series after they realized there wasn’t anywhere they could easily race together.
“Even with all of the knowledge and experience of a pro on my side, it was still a complicated undertaking to get started racing,” said Perisset. “This series makes it easy and fun to get out and run a race.”
The EXR Racing Series provides every driver in the field with a full compliment of the best equipment and training needed to get started. The series includes personalized coaching, skilled technicians and a brand new fleet of EXR LV02 cars to race on the purpose-built track.
The EXR LV02 is a rear-wheel drive light weight sports car that is easy and fun to drive. It features a sedan-style body over a tube-frame chassis, a six-speed sequential transmission with paddle shift, and a superb power-to-weight ratio.
Drivers can opt to run one race, the whole season, or even test the car for a few hours on one of the specially designed Exotics Racing tracks in Las Vegas or Los Angeles.
The competition is offered in two formats, Sprint and Endurance. Sprint races are short and fast for drivers focused on commitment and flat-out speed, while the Endurance category features races between two- and six-hours long in cars that can be shared by up to four drivers.
The series plans 16 race weekends per season at its purpose-built tracks in Las Vegas and in Los Angeles, as well as special visits to other tracks including Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Sprint races start at $4,990 and endurance races start at $9,990.
Racing is slated to start November 3 with an endurance race in Las Vegas, followed by further dates on the West Coast. The series culminates in an exciting, five-day Las Vegas Superfinal from December 1st through the 5th, where racers will battle it out for a $100,000 prize.
