A Disney spokeswoman declined comment.
At the track, customers pay anywhere from $200 to about $400 to drive five or six laps around a track with a professional driving instructor in the passenger seat offering advice, according to the Exotic Driving Experience’s website.
The track is operated by Petty Holdings, which has other Exotic Driving Experience attractions 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 organization, 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 sibling track, the Richard Petty Driving Experience, was slated to close this summer at Disney World for unrelated reasons.MORE NEWS: Second Suspected Case Of Monkeypox In Broward Under Investigation
