Corvette Thrill Ride
My husband’s birthday was this past Monday and I wanted to do something extra special for him. As I searched through the experiences in our area, I saw one in particular that I knew he would love: Corvette Thrill Ride. A yellow Corvette has been his dream car ever since I met him 21 years ago. Thus, I knew this would be the one for him! I wish I would have remembered to capture his excitement when I told him about it. I was too excited for him and could not wait to share the news!
Basically, we BOTH were able to be race around the inside track of Texas Motor Speedway in a race-ready Z06 Corvette… yellow of course! 5 laps around at speeds reaching up to 120 mph. Luckily, there were professional race car drivers behind the wheel and we had super cool racing suits and helmets to wear. We were buckled into our five-point harness system in the car and were ready to rock-and-roll!
My husband was in the car ahead of me and one other rider in a car behind us. We waited for the green flag and then raced out on the track. The first stretch of the track is the straightaway and were you could pick up the most speed. But, as you come to the first turn, everything halts as the driver downshifts going into the turn. My entire body was pushing into the harness… and I was grateful for its added cushion. A quick turn to the right and we were headed into the twists and turns of the track. Fortunately, I do believe the drives are choreographed, because on the turns we would switch off with the car my husband was in. On one turn they would take the lead spot and we would draft closely behind. On the next turn we we would switch. Exhilarating to say the least! Just watch the in-car video we got (it’s about 7 minutes long but I think you can get an easy feel for the ride in the first two laps):
Afterwards, the difficult part was not wanting to stay below the speeds we had been traveling in the Corvette. Honestly, it was amazing. My husband’s first remark… through a huge grin… 1 more thing to mark off my bucket list. I am honored to know I could help him do that. Not only was he extremely grateful for the opportunity… but I was overcome with gratitude for just being able to share it with him. Cloud 9 Living completely rocked both our worlds on Saturday with this bucket list experience.
And now… they can help do the same for you!
