AUSTIN, TX, February 26, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- If you live in or near Austin TX and you've ever wanted to indulge your inner Ferris Bueller and take a day off to drive a Ferrari, you can. In fact, if you grab one of the few remaining seats in DFW Drive Your Dream.com's upcoming 2000HP Tour being held on April 18, 2009, you'll drive a Ferrari 360 Spyder and four other dream cars on a pre-mapped open road course that includes some of the most scenic and deserted stretches of highway in and around Austin.
"Lots of people would like to drive five dream cars in a single day, but very few exotic car enthusiasts ever get the chance to do it," said Ron Sturgeon, owner of DFW Drive Your Dream.com, a Fort Worth, TX-based exotic car driving experience provider.
"We only get to come to Austin, TX, three or four times a year, so we usually end up turning people away or wait listing drivers who have to hope for a last-minute cancellation to get a seat," said Sturgeon. "I expect that to be especially true now that we have added the 2009 Audi R8 to a high performance line up that already includes a Ferrari 360, a Lamborghini Gallardo, a Dodge Viper SRT-10 and a Porsche 911 Cabriolet," said the exotic car industry entrepreneur.
The 4 to 5 hour tour experience includes instruction from the tour director on the nuances of driving each of the performance cars and covers a 150+ mile course selected for its ability to demonstrate each car's capabilities.
"The Ferrari 360 makes speed seem so effortless and has a glorious top down engine note," said writer, blogger and music critic Paula Felps, a recent 2000HP Tour participant. "I attended a drive your dream event with account executives from a Fortune 500 company," said Felps. "At every checkpoint, out came the cell phones because they couldn't help sharing how it felt to drive a Lamborghini or Ferrari."
A seat on the April 18th tour costs only $697.00 per driver and makes a wonderful birthday or anniversary gift for an exotic car fan. A small number of ride-a-long tickets are available for the event in Austin. These tickets secure a spot in the passenger seat and double the drive time for the gift recipient.
Exotic car fans considering a 2000HP Tour can visit the company's website (http://www.dfwdriveyourdream.com) to see a collection of pictures and You Tube hosted videos of previous tours. "There's no substitute for driving these supercars, but our videos give a taste of the fun in store for participants," said Josh Davis, the Fort Worth professional photographer responsible for shooting the dream car tour videos.
