100|OCT today announced that Valentino Balboni, former test driver for Lamborghini Automobili, has signed up to participate in the 100|OCT Experience 2016, the best luxury road trip in the American West.

The 100|OCT Experience 2016 will take exotic and super car owners on an amazing journey through the American West from Wednesday July 6, 2016 to Sunday July 10, 2016. It is not a rally where you have to drive as fast as possible from one point to the other. Rather it is an enjoyable and luxurious road trip through breathtaking scenery on great and rarely traveled roads. The 100|OCT Experience 2016 will start from Santana Row, a high end shopping district in San Jose, California on Wednesday July 6 at night, and reach Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday July 9 in the afternoon. Participants will stay in the most luxurious hotels and dine in the best restaurants every night.

“I really enjoy driving and I love meeting new people,” said Valentino Balboni. “I look forward to driving through California and Nevada with people who share my passion for Italian cars.”

“In the world of exotic cars, Valentino Balboni is a legend,” said Benoît Boningue, 100|OCT’s Founder and General Manager. “We are honored to have him along for our upcoming 100|OCT Experience 2016 and we can’t wait to get to know him better on a personal level!”
