New EXR Racing Series Brings Arrive-and-Drive Racing to U.S.A.

GT Tour 2015 Val De VienneFrom the founders of the Exotics Racing supercar experience comes a brand new take on motorsport. It’s racing — made easy.
The arrive-and-drive EXR Racing Series, launching this fall, offers great competition without any of the hassle of having to invest in a car, hire a crew, or buy expensive gear. It is a turn-key, professional-level experience.
“We’re handling everything so you can just show up and drive,” said Romain Thievin, a European champion driver and series co-founder. “We want to make sure all you’re worrying about at the track is racing.”
Racing is slated to start November 3 with an endurance race in Las Vegas, followed by dates on the West Coast. The series culminates in an exciting, five-day Las Vegas Superfinal event December 1-5, where racers from a wide variety of competition backgrounds will battle it out for a $100,000 prize.
Professional driver Thievin and David Perisset, an investment banker who enjoys amateur competition, decided to create the series after they realized there wasn’t anywhere they could easily race together.
“Even with all of the knowledge and experience of a pro on my side, it was still a complicated undertaking to get started racing,” said Perisset. “This series makes it easy and fun to get out and run a race.”
The EXR Racing Series provides every driver in the field with a full compliment of the best equipment and any training needed to get started. The brand new fleet of EXR LV02 cars, purpose-built tracks, excellent trackside facilities, a licensing program, personalized coaching and skilled technicians are all supplied.
The series is overseen by former IndyCar team owner Eric Bachelart, with professional drivers Alex Premat as team manager and Tristan Vautier as sporting manager.
The EXR LV02 is a rear-wheel drive machine that is as easy and fun to drive as it is rewarding – for novices and pros alike. Front engine and rear-wheel drive, the car is a proven performer in Europe’s MitJet Series. It features a sedan-style body over a tube-frame chassis, a six-speed sequential transmission with paddle shift, and an enviable power-to-weight ratio.
Drivers can opt to run one race, the whole season, or even test the car for a few hours on one of the specially designed Exotics Racing tracks in Las Vegas or Los Angeles, which are open for practice seven days a week, year-round.
It is expected that the series will attract entrants ranging from gentlemen racers who spend their weeks focusing on their professional careers and want to drive on the weekends, to young go-kart drivers just getting started, as well as professional drivers looking for a new challenge.
Competition is offered in two formats. Sprint races are short and fast for drivers focused on commitment and flat-out speed, while the Endurance category features races between two- and six-hours long in cars that can be shared by up to four drivers.
The series plans 16 race weekends per season at its purpose-built tracks in Las Vegas and in Los Angeles, as well as special visits to other tracks including Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Sprint races start at $4,990 and endurance races start at $9,990.
