Fatal Lamborghini Crash At Disney World

A man has been killed at a supercar racing attraction in Florida's Disney World after the driver of a Lamborghini lost control and crashed into a guardrail.

The 36-year-old victim had been the passenger in the vehicle at the Florida holiday resort.
The driver was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
Customers at the the Walt Disney World attraction can pay up to nearly $400 (£274) to drive five or six laps around the track in luxury cars such as Lamborghinis, Porsches or Ferraris, accompanied by a professional driving instructor.
It is not clear if the driver was a track employee or a customer. The names of those involved have not been released.
The Lamborghini crashed when the driver lost control on the course at the Exotic Driving Experience, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
A Disney spokeswoman declined to comment.
The track is run by Petty Holdings, which also operates Exotic Driving Experience courses at speedways in Atlanta, Daytona Beach, New Jersey, Kansas, New Hampshire and Texas.
In a statement, Petty Holdings said: "On behalf of everyone in the organisation, it is with a very heavy heart that we extend our deepest sympathies to those involved in today's tragic accident in Orlando."
The Exotic Driving Experience, along with its sister track, the Richard Petty Driving Experience, is due to close this summer at Disney World for unrelated reasons.
