On Sunday, a passenger traveling in a Lamborghini was killed when the car smashed into a guardrail at Walt Disney World.
Gary Terry, the passenger in the car and operations manager at the Richard Petty Driving Experience track, died on the spot, as reported by the Orlando Sentinel.
The Florida Highway Patrol said that the crash occurred at the Exotic Driving Experience, where one can drive their favorite car on a racetrack. For a sum of anywhere between $200 and $400, customers can drive five or six laps in their dream car assisted by an instructor sitting in the passenger seat.
The cars available at the Walk Disney Speedway are the Ferrari 458 Italia, Ferrari 430 Scuderia, Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera, Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4, Nissan GT-R and Porsche 990S.
Petty Holdings, set up by former NASCAR driver Richard Petty, operates the Exotic Driving Experience at Walt Disney World Speedway. A statement released by the company said, “On behalf of everyone in the organization, it is with a very heavy heart that we extend our deepest sympathies to those involved in today’s tragic accident in Orlando.”
Petty Holdings also provides services at speedways in Atlanta, Daytona Beach, New Jersey, Kansas, New Hampshire and Texas.
According to Daily News, a spokeswoman said Disney offers its “deepest sympathy to those involved” in the crash.
The Exotic Driving Experience at Walt Disney World was set to shut down this summer for unrelated reasons, as reported by The Guardian.
