High-powered Lamborghini Gallardo hit guardrail at speed


A passenger was killed at a pay-for-play exotic-car driving event. This one happened at Walt Disney World in Florida when driver Tavon Watson, 24, lost control of a Lamborghini (http://autoweek.com/vehicles/lamborghini)and hit a guardrail, killing Gary Terry, 36, who was an employee of Exotic Driving Experience.

This accident comes after last year’s amateur stock-car racing death (http://autoweek.com/article/nascar/details-still-scarce-regarding-stock-car-related-death-rusty-wallace-driving) at the Rusty Wallace Experience at Kentucky Speedway.



The Florida Highway Patrol says that Watson “failed to maneuver” the Lamborghini Gallardo (http://autoweek.com/vehicles/lamborghini/gallardo) around the exotic racing course, which includes some s-turns, hairpins and half the oval at Walt Disney World Speedway (http://www.exoticdriving.com/race-track/orlando-walt-disney-world-speedway) in Lake Buena Vista. Terry died at the scene; Watson was treated and released.

Disney World’s exotic driving experience lets visitors take six, eight or 10 laps in a Porsche 911, Ferrari 430 or 458, Lamborghini Gallardo (http://autoweek.com/vehicles/lamborghini/gallardo), Audi R8 (http://autoweek.com/vehicles/audi/r8) or Nissan GT-R (http://autoweek.com/vehicles/nissan/gt-r), or let a professional take the wheel for two high-speed laps.

Richard Petty released a statement on Monday afternoon.



"The entire Petty family, and everyone associated with Petty, is deeply saddened by the passing of Gary Terry yesterday. Our prayers go out to his family and everyone affected by this tragedy. We are all thinking about the family and friends of Gary and all the employees of the Exotic Driving Experience."
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the accident is still under investigation.
