Women, booze and boats be damned – little warms the cockles like pegging a car's speedometer.
So embrace your inner McQueen at the newly opened Thermal Club, 350 acres of race car heaven between La Quinta and Palm Springs, now accepting members.
Owners Tim and Tawna Rogers (of Tower Market fortune) have softly opened their passion project and it's 1.8 miles of palm-lined asphalt. Planned build-out: 4.5 miles.
The track's design will include three separate circuits with over 19 different configurations, and the grounds will also house around 200 member garages.
These garages vary in size, storing up to eleven cars, and each has a second floor lounge, from which you and your guests can watch the races.
They have instructors, service stations and a plush hacienda-style clubhouse, with a spa, gym, pool and tennis courts.
Race on over.
