Many people go to sports-car races just to see the crashes, but only die-hard fans stay to watch each driver solemnly bury his car. Pay your respects with this GrouponLive deal to see the final day of the Grand-Am Road Racing Rolex Sports Car Series at Road Atlanta. For $23, you get all-day general-admission entry on Friday, April 19, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday, April 20, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. (up to a $53 value). Kids 12 and younger are admitted for free when accompanied by an adult.
Grand-Am Road Racing preps its engines for the summer season with the Rolex Sports Car Series, a two-day weekend event at Road Atlanta that welcomes three classes of cars, including a freshly minted GX class of roadsters equipped with industry-leading tech. Because admission to the paddock is free for all general-admission ticket holders, fans are welcome to bring their own chairs, blankets, and pop-up tents to stay cozy as they soak up the sights and sounds of Friday’s qualifying events. On Saturday, qualifying cars spend the morning hours practicing until the 11:30 a.m. Continental Tire Challenge Race, which puts straight-from-the-showroom roadsters to the test in a 2.5-hour battle for on-track supremacy. After a brief intermission and free autograph session, Sunday’s main event—the Rolex Series Race—gets underway at 4:30 p.m. The race showcases the series’ iconic Daytona Prototypes, powered by BMW, Chevy, or Porsche engines that run entirely on raw eggs and protein powder.
