(CNN) — A Lamborghini sports car crashed into a guardrail at Walt Disney World Speedway on Sunday, killing a passenger, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The crash occurred at 3:30 p.m. at the Exotic Driving Experience, which bills itself as a chance to drive your dream car on a racetrack.

A male 36-year-old passenger was pronounced dead at the scene. The car’s driver, a man who lost control of the vehicle, was transported to the hospital with minor injuries, Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman Sgt. Kim Montes said.

Petty Holdings, which operates the Exotic Driving Experience at Walt Disney World Speedway, released a statement Sunday night about the crash.

“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 company said.

Petty Holdings also operates the Richard Petty Driving Experience — a chance to drive or ride in NASCAR race cars named for the winningest driver in the sport’s history.
