A 36-year-old driving instructor was killed Sunday afternoon in a crash at the Exotic Driving Experience at Walt Disney World Speedway. The attraction, which allows guests to drive high-end sports cars, sits on Disney property near World Drive and Floridian Way in Orlando, Florida.

Tavon Watson, 24 was driving Gary Terry, 36 in a Lamborghini during an exotic driving experience. While trying to maneuver through the course, Watson lost control of the car, causing it to leave the racetrack and strike a guardrail. Terry died at the scene. Watson was transported to Celebration Hospital with minor injuries.

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 sibling track, the Richard Petty Driving Experience, was slated to close this summer at Disney World for unrelated reasons.
