Escape from Manhattan: Drive a Race Car in April or May

SCC ExoticsI’m thrilled that I got to experience the VIP “before-the-show” tour of the New York International Auto Show at the Javits Center for the past two years.  It’s a fabulous way to see all the new models and concept cars…without all the crowds.  If you’re lucky, you might even get invited to one of the prestigious cocktail events that surround the launch of the new cars.  My favorites of these pre-parties?  Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz are the consummate hosts with their pear martinis and chocolate-covered strawberries, and their gorgeous cars and SUVs.  If you missed the show, which ended on April 7, you still have another way to get your fix of exotic cars and even try one out yourself.  

For as low as $275, Signature Car Collection will put you in the driver’s seat of a Lamborghini, Audi, Ferrari, or Maserati, on April 30, May 14 or May 28 at the Pocono Raceway in Pennsylvania, breakfast or lunch included.  Four laps of pure ecstasy.  I did it as a passenger in a race car at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but this is a heck of a lot closer, and you can be the driver.  It makes for a wonderful way to escape Manhattan and you’ll be able to smile in silent understanding the next time you see those cool cars cruising down Park Avenue. Still not enough for you adrenaline junkies?  You can drive nine laps for just $450.  Book this by April 21 – you don’t want to miss out on this incredible opportunity. 877-511-1876
