Life in the public fast lane is for chumps. Serious speeders will want to test their mettle on the Xtreme Challenge, an event hosted by a team of Belgian instructors from World Class Driving (www.worldclass driving.com). The company has built its reputation on traveling tours, in which participants sample a handful of sports cars for a day on open roads for $1695. The Xtreme program runs $4995, presumably due to the cost of renting an entire airfield for the day and expensive insurance.

Before the fun begins, participants must first sign away their lives. Item No. 8 on the liability waiver begins with this line:
“Entrant hereby acknowledges that the activities of the event(s) are very dangerous and involve the risk of serious injury and/or death and/or property damage.”

Driving at a rate of about one football field a second is something I won’t soon forget, even though each two-mile run took less than a minute from start to finish. “We have racing drivers, but we are not a racing school,” Linder maintains. “This is simply a chance for people to get a feeling for speed without having a black-and-white car on their tail. It’s just for fun."
