Vacations in the Fast Lane
If you are a racing enthusiast, a holiday at a racing destination will definitely get the best out of you. These vacations are by far more stimulating and exciting than watching the broadcasts on television. This is one of the best reasons to plan a racing vacation. There are a number of ways to enjoy such fun holidays.
One way is to visit one of the prominent museums, like Daytona, which not only has good tracks and wonderful museum facilities, but also features the Richard Petty driving experience that will keep you entertained for hours. Not only do they have some of the most famous cars ever on display in these museums, but they also have some of the most interesting information about drivers and races. While viewing the memorabilia you can learn a lot of interesting things.
Another suitable option is to book a trip with a sports travel agency where you can select from the Formula One, NASCAR and even Grand Prix vacations. Most packages include hotel accommodation and tickets to a race or two along with admission to a local museum, track tours, twenty-four hour trip assistance and freebies like programs and souvenirs. Some packages also include airline tickets and all sorts of optional add-ons to your racing vacation. One example of a package in demand has an option of session with NASCAR drivers at Atlanta Motor Speedway and another package has an option that lets you use the hospitality tent. The tents come with free food and beverages. You also have an option to rent a scanner to hear the commentary on the race, follow the drivers and officials and you can even watch the race live.
The best option possibly could be to live the experience through a racing school. After selecting the driving school you can make the choices that suit your needs. The first decision will have to be made as to what kind of school you would like to get admitted into, and select any car you like from Indy's to Corvettes. The next thing to decide upon is the duration of your driving experience that could last from half a day and two to three days. The first session is a classroom one that just teaches the basics like rules on the track and racing safety tips. The other lessons taught are based on driver essentials, skid works, car dynamics, balancing a car which are essential to know on the track. From there on instructors will also help you get used to cars and build your driving skills as each practice session follows.
In majority of the racing schools, qualified driving coaches take you and your classmates on a step-by-step learning spree, through a skill-oriented program to help you explore your interests, helping you to develop your abilities as a driver. There is no pressure on your performance, since everyone is simply there for fun. The racing schools get their money up front and so, they do not care much about your performance on the track, unlike high school football, where performance is everything. By the end of the day in racing school, you'll probably be able to drive your dream car like a pro, lapping the track at hair-raising speeds that you dreamed of as you commuted to work. If you choose to enroll in a racing school, be sure you rest and eat well the day before. It is important to take care of your body before you actually begin practice, as it is exhausting. A driving license is a requirement to enroll in a driving school.
Choosing and planning a racing vacation can make your next holiday a rewarding change to the monotonous life you lead.
