When you find yourself behind the wheel of a supercar, it’s very tempting to open up the taps a bit and see just how much it has to offer. However, modern day supercars are so insanely powerful, that it’s virtually impossible – not to mention, illegal – to explore their performance on public roads. For instance, at full pelt, the Lamborghini Aventador takes merely six seconds to reach 100 mph – which is 30 mph more than the national highway speed limit – from a standstill.
However, if you’re in California, we have some good news for you. The Sunshine State is home to some state-of-the-art racetracks where you can actually push a supercar to its limits – safely and legally.
So rent out your favorite supercar from LA Exotic Rentals, and drive to any of the racetracks mentioned below.
Willow Springs International Raceway
While some racetracks offer a drag strip, others offer road and drifting courses. There are very few racetracks that offer everything – and the Willow Springs International Raceway is one of them. For nearly seventy years, this wonderful racetrack has been a haven for car racers and enthusiasts alike. From long, high-speed straights to sweeping bends with chicanes, the Willow Spring International Raceway offers just about everything you need to test the capabilities of a thoroughbred sports car.
Another coveted Californian racetrack, the Sonoma Raceway has been a beloved motor sporting venue since the early’ 60s. Over the years, many chances have been made to the circuit’s layout. These days, it’s an elevated, tight, and difficult course that can not only push the most advanced supercars to the ragged edge, but also test the courage and capabilities of the driver.
WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca
The Raceway Laguna Seca is not only the most iconic racetrack in California, it’s arguably the most beloved and classic racetracks in all of the United States. Over the years, it’s featured in popular video games, such as Forza and GT Racing, and has hosted countless motorsport events.
The Raceway Laguna Seca is amazing to see in person – particularly from behind the wheel. It has a unique layout that features some complex corners and elevation changes. It’s also home to one of the most legendary and challenging turns in all of motorsports: the notorious “Corkscrew” – a blind crest followed by a plunging turn that features an 18-meter elevation-drop.
