The Roosevelt New Orleans, a Waldorf Astoria Hotel, is bringing the Waldorf Astoria Driving Experience to the streets of New Orleans.
This driving program will come to The Roosevelt on two separate occasions and offer hotel guests the opportunity to get behind the wheel of three incredible supercars — a Ferrari 458 Italia Spider, a McLaren MP4-12C and a Porsche GT3 — under the guidance of world-class professional race car driver Didier Theys.
The driving experience program will be held Sept. 11-13 and will return Oct. 9-11.
Morning, midday and afternoon sessions will be offered daily. Drivers will get an introduction and tutorial about each vehicle by excursion leader and Belgian race champion Theys and then set out behind the wheels on a driving tour, rotating cars and drivers along the way.
The course takes attendees from downtown New Orleans to the west bank of the Mississippi River, following alongside the famous waterway’s winds and turns.
The total drive time will be approximately three hours, and the cost of the experience is $999 per couple, excluding accommodations.
