Driving a race car is so yesterday's news. Yes, it's exciting, but given the wealth of race car driving experiences out there -- schools run by luminaries such as Richard Petty and Mario Andretti, sessions put on by NASCAR -- it's not that special. So if you're looking for something a little different, something a little more thrilling, try racing exotic supercars. Specifically, try to break the 200 mph (322 kph) barrier. During this experience offered by World Class Driving, you'll be able to climb into one of several uber-luxurious wheels capable of hitting such speeds, including Audis, Bentleys, Ferraris, Jaguars, Lamborghinis and Mercedes-Benzes. As you make your attempt, you'll have a professional driver with you to ensure safety. And you can only attempt this 200 mph-challenge at two select airport locations with the perfect conditions, including plenty of open space, in case you make an error. But if you're able to smash through that barrier, you'll join a very select group of less than 200 amateurs [source: World Class Driving].
