What You'll Get
The closest most people get to racecar driving is playing video games or attaching a box fan to the back of a shopping cart. Separate the men from the groceries with today’s Groupon: for $299, you get a two-hour driving experience at Allen Berg Racing Schools in Fontana (a $686 value). Each driving experience includes the following:
- A 20-minute classroom session
- A 20-minute ride-along with an instructor
- 25 minutes of driving time in a Formula racecar
- On-board high-definition video footage of the 25-minute drive, posted online
- A souvenir photo of you beside the racecar<p>
Available dates include the following:
- January 17 and 18
- February 14 and 15
- March 1<p>
Additional dates in January through the end of March 2012 will be added if necessary.
The experienced and speed-smitten staff at Allen Berg Racing Schools demonstrates the art of tire burning for amateur auto racers in a fleet of authentic European-manufactured competition-grade racecars. The experience begins with a speed-centered seminar, where racers review basic operation of the car, including how to sweet-talk it into driving itself during morning commutes. Then, students take a stroll to the Auto Club Speedway, where they ride alongside their instructor to get a feel for the track’s 13 twists and turns. Once fitted for uniforms and racecars, speed stars jump in for a trek around the track, observed by strategically placed instructors for pointers and drive-thru chicken-nugget orders. After pupils ride for 25 minutes on the track, an on-board video of their session, captured by the vehicle’s HD camera, will be posted to Dropbox. At the conclusion of each session, students stand proudly by their rides for a commemorative Flickr-posted photo.
