What You'll Get
The closest most people get to race-car driving is playing video games or attaching box fans to the back of shopping carts. Separate the men from the groceries with today's Groupon: for $299, you get a two-hour driving experience at Allen Berg Racing Schools (a $686 value). Each driving experience includes:
- A 20-minute ride-along with an instructor
- 25 minutes of driving time in a Formula racecar
- On-board HD video of the 25-minute drive on the track posted online
- A certificate

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 race cars. The experience begins with a speed-centred seminar, where racers review basic operation of the car, including how to sweet-talk it into driving you to work in the morning. Then, students take a stroll to the track, where they ride alongside their instructors to get a feel for the track's twists and turns. Once fitted for uniforms and race cars, speed stars jump in for a trek around the track, communicating with strategically placed instructors for pointers and drive-through 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 YouTube. After each session, students stand proudly by their rides for a commemorative Flickr-posted photo.
All riders also receive a certificate. Speed addicts anxious for their next chance to fly down the track can take $200 off a one-, two-, or three-day racing program within the next 90 days.
