New Hampshire Motor Speedway officials are happy to see the snow melting and the track drying in time for a unique event that will drop the green flag on the 2013 season at the Magic Mile. The Exotic Driving Experience, featuring super-fast supercars such as Ferrari, Lamborghini and Aston Martin, will scream into the Granite State April 5-7 in the first of several planned stops through the spring, summer and fall.
The Orlando-based driving class will use the Magic Mile's 1.6-mile, winding road course, allowing serious thrill-seekers an opportunity to push the limits and feel the acceleration, speed and precise handling of some of the coolest high-performance vehicles in the world.
The Exotic Driving Experience won’t be the only vehicles heating up the track in April. The NH Cycling Club will pedal its way on the road course for the first time on April 4, while the COM Sports Car Club will have an open road course test on April 12. The PCA North Country will be on-track April 13-14, the Rusty Wallace Driving Experience rolls into town April 17-18 and the New England Region Sports Car Club of America takes its first spins April 20-21.
The Moat Mountain Legends Road Course Series kicks off its season on April 27 and 28, while the Loudon Road Racing Series will bring two-wheeled mayhem to the Magic Mile for the first of seven weekends.
Tickets for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series New Hampshire 300 are also on sale. Speedway officials recently unveiled the "Toyota Wheel and Deal Pre-Race Show" promotion, which will transform this summer’s frontstretch and pre-race stage into the world’s largest game show. Contestants will be playing for prizes worth more than $250,000, including 10 sparkling new 2013 Toyotas.
NHMS offers an interest-free payment plan, which allows fans to secure their tickets, camping spots and pre-race pit passes with a 25 percent deposit. The remaining balance is then spread out over three interest-free payments.
