Taking to the open road in a Ferrari, Lamborghini or Bentley is now a dream more easily realized. On April 23, World Class Driving launches its 45-city U.S. Supercar tour, giving auto enthusiasts the opportunity to get behind the wheels of a whole fleet of high-performance vehicles. Every convoy consists of five supercars, and drivers get to pilot each one along carefully chosen, scenic-yet-challenging routes, stopping every half hour to rotate at designated checkpoints. Starting in May at the Monticello Motor Club, about 90 minutes northwest of Manhattan, World Class Driving will also offer the 360 Track Experience, a day-long racing school in purpose-built Ferrari Challenge cars. The morning session will include instruction on safety, weight transfer, braking and driving trajectories; in the afternoon, motorists will set out on the 4.1-mile track. A one-day booking of the U.S. Supercar Tour is $1,700, the 360 Track Experience, $4,000; 877-597-6403; worldclassdriving.com.
