Rev Your Engines: World Class Driving Inspires the Racecar Driver Within Us All

The sweet purr of the engine, the feel of the cool leather on the steering wheel, the possibilities of the open road – it’s not difficult to understand the appeal of driving some of the world’s finest cars. The good news is you don’t have to be a professional driver or own a Ferrari or Lamborghini to experience the heart-pumping excitement of controlling one of these fine pieces of machinery – you simply need to take a trip to Las Vegas and get to know the experts at World Class Driving.

While the company started as a car club in the New York City area, it soon transitioned into offering car driving experiences in cities throughout the country. Today it is located exclusively in Las Vegas where it has built an extensive list of clients from around the world. Located just off the Las Vegas Strip, car enthusiasts and adrenaline seekers alike book a once-in-a-lifetime experience where they drive multiple exotic cars through the beautiful Red Rock Canyon.

What is the Exotic Supercar Driving Experience like? Guests start with a short safety briefing before being transported to the starting point at Red Rock Canyon. The driving route provides stunning scenery guaranteed to make your jaw drop – the perfect complement to the experience of driving three unique exotic vehicles around twisting and curving roads.

“We start out and switch through three cars through the course of the entire experience,” says Sam Weaver of World Class Driving, who explains the driving experience is conducted in a lead-follow format. “We start in one car for 10 miles into the canyon, stop for 10 minutes for a photo break, switch cars and keep going.”

A sample of some of the cars in the World Class Driving fleet include:

  • Audi R8 V10
  • Bentley Continental GT
  • Ferrari 458 and F430
  • Jaguar XKR, XKR-S
  • 2010 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560
  • 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Spyder Performante
  • Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren

“We make it fun, we like to sell our experience,” says Weaver. “It’s about the handling of the cars and the experience of driving multiple cars.” Weaver points out that recently a variety of muscle cars have been added to the fleet, including a Shelby GT 500, Corvette Z06 and Dodge Challenger SRT8.

If you love cars and want to cross another item off your bucket list, the Exotic Supercar Driving Experience from World Class Driving is sure to get your heart racing and create memories to last a lifetime.

Strategy that Can Double & Triple Revenue from One Auction Item

Consignment travel packages can be extremely lucrative for your nonprofit, providing the ability to sell incredible trips multiple times, at no risk to you or your organization. Doing so benefits your event in three ways: Increase revenue: Double, triple, or quadruple your profit on a single package. It's a win-win: Making Bidders happy means making your nonprofit happy. Capture secondary bidders: Why have one winner when you can have multiple? Having more than one of the same auction items means there is no second place. Doubling up enables your auctioneer to capture additional revenue from more people.   It's easier to pull off than you might think! There are unlimited ways to sell multiple no-risk consignment travel packages at any point of your event timeline—before, during, and after—that doesn't take any extra procurement on your part and costs nothing if items do not sell. Read on for the strategies our nonprofit clients have used to double, triple, even quadruple their revenue on a single package to raise a lot more for their cause.
