Like 300-foot-tall redwoods, successful racecar drivers require a sturdy core and the ability to keep direction by growing moss on the north-facing side of their body. Determine racing aptitude with today’s Groupon from Mach1 Racing Schools in Brooklyn. Choose between two options:
- For $49, you get a three-lap ride-along with an instructor (a $99 value).
- For $35, you get a $100 gift card good toward drive programs. This option is not valid for ride-along programs.
Mach 1 Racing Schools provide adrenaline-pumping opportunities, putting patrons at the wheels of stockcars that have raced in cup and nationwide competitions. The three-lap ride-along firmly plants joy-riders in the passenger seat while an instructor hits speeds up to 150 miles per hour, takes straight-aways within inches of the track wall, and crochets kitten mittens between shifting gears. Gift cards can be used toward the purchase of driving programs, which put leadfoots directly in the driver’s seat. Beginner Schools can range from six laps ($369) to 10 laps ($529) to 30 laps ($1,249), and the Advanced Schools ($2,499) offer 50 laps, including 10 laps in a race against an instructor. All rubber gets burned directly onto the Michigan International Speedway, fulfilling dreams of racing without the awkward realization you're driving naked.
