Once-in-a-lifetime "Car vs Cobra" race!

  • Space Coast Regional Airport Firehouse 370 Golden Knights Boulevard Titusville, FL, 32780 United States (map)

Here is a video showing the same Helicopter that you will be racing!

Since 2014 Precision Exotics has been dazzling air show spectators across North America every week with our one-of-a-kind performances that put exotic cars against high performance aircraft. However, for some, watching just isn't enough. In 2016 we organized a special event that actually allowed the spectator to become a part of the action by racing their own hyper-car vs a fighter jet! The response was so overwhelming, we're doing it again in 2017!

Bring YOUR exotic and race it on the runway at the Space Coast Regional Airport against the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation's AH-1 Cobra Attack Helicopter that's capable of speeds near 200 mph! You'll line up on the runway while the Cobra hovers next to you and when the Cobra tilts forward to start his run, you'll try to chase him down! You have one mile before needing to hit the brakes. Good Luck!

Precision Exotics, the premier air show performance and driving experience provider is proud to partner with Stacy Newman Events to bring you this truly unique and exciting opportunity. If you missed last year's "Car vs Jet" event we hosted in conjunction with The Zamrotti, be sure not to miss this one!

This very special event is limited to 15 drivers only, and we expect it to sell out fast! If your exotic is in the shop, or you just want to watch, you can do that too! If you decide to come as a spectator, you'll be viewing the event from the flight-line, so bring a chair. If you are coming as a participant, all of your guests get to watch for free.
