A fearless driver I am not. When I went race car driving with a group of friends, I was the only one who chose a ride-along — but that is my need for speed talking, too. If I’d have driven, I would have putt-putted around the track. (Lame.) Same with off-roading: If I hadn’t jumped in the passenger seat, I would never have gotten airborne! So when World Class Driving convinced me to join their American Muscle Car driving experience one morning, I was so in. I now know that there are ways that even scaredy cats like me can be in on the fun.
Even though being driven around a professional racetrack was the thrill of a lifetime (topped only by flying a jet plane), World Class Driving’s leisure activity was something special. The guys (and one girl) who were SO excited by the muscle cars were thrilled that they got to drive them all morning.
In fact, World Class Driving is the first company to allow guests to take these kinds of muscle cars out on the open road.
Instead of blinking an eye on the race car track and then your rush (oh what a rush!) is over, with these driving experiences, you actually feel like you had a half-day of fun. The packages are also much less expensive than the race car ones.
And we were off!
The best part of not driving? I got to take a ton of pictures! Nothing’s more peaceful than a morning ride…
Since my sign in the Chinese zodiac is a snake, and it happens to be the year of the snake (so I celebrated the Chinese new year with a bang), I have been somewhat obsessed. So I couldn’t help but love the Shelby GT500.
It was a glorious morning to take a drive through Red Rock Canyon.
Every 30-50 miles (depending on which package you buy), you switch cars, so everyone gets to try all of the different models. All of the professional drivers were true car junkies, really excited to be sharing these cars with you and answer any questions you might have. On my tour was a fun couple from Canada who took turns driving, and a car aficionado from Saudi Arabia who was doing the experience for the second day in a row!
When we arrived back at their office to conclude a wonderful morning, there happened to be a not-yet-released Bentley sitting in the parking lot… (World Class Driving also does exotics car driving experiences.)
The four-seat, second-generation Continental GTC comes in a wide array of color and color combinations of soft-touch leather interiors.
Nothing but the best for this Bentley: Pirelli tires.
My favorite part: the new warmer, nicknamed a “neck scarf.” Chilly with the roof down? No worries — this classy Bentley has got you covered, with three power settings of heat to keep your neck nice and toasty.
This was a driver’s seat I had to jump into!
Now that’s a car I could get used to driving!
I was a guest of World Class Driving, located just off the Las Vegas Strip, but all opinions are my own.
