Vegas - Hi Octane Hi Horsepower Fun
While the bed was King-Size and super comfortable, the body was still in a different time zone so sleep was not forthcoming nor when it did, was it quality.
Breakfast downstairs and then we caught an Uber to what I was led to believe was the gun-range for some target shooting.
Heading down the highway one very obvious piece of advertising was evident. Huge billboards stood like sentinels on the freeway every few hundred meters reminiscent of “Better call Saul”.
Nevada is the “sue capital” and every billboard was promoting an “ambulance chaser” - a dodgy photo and a corny tag line with a phone number. “We’ll get you the max for your injury”.
The drive was quite long and much longer than I expected given the gun range “is a few blocks away” and it was only when we entered the grounds of the Las Vegas Speedway that my suspicions were confirmed.
Leon had treated me to a high performance drive around the circuit as a “thank you” for taking him on the Iceland Adventure.
Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, McLaren, Mercedes and the Audi R8 “beast” were the cars on offer and the obvious choice was the V10 650hp Audi R8. The performance specs on this car are amazing.
