What You'll Get
Driving a high-performance automobile is an experience normally reserved for the ultra-rich, along with picnicking atop a hot-air balloon and playing bingo for thoroughbred horses. Get a gasoline-soaked taste of the good life with today’s Groupon: for $95, you get $200 worth of tickets (eight tickets at $25 apiece) to American Dreams Racing Experience, held throughout the summer at Pikes Peak International Raceway in Fountain, Colorado.
American Dreams Racing Experience places car keys and a pass of speed-limit immunity into the white-knuckled hands of asphalt admirals for a chance to drive or ride in high-performance autos such as Lamborghini, Lotus, and Shelby Cobra. Redeem driving-experience tickets ($25 apiece) at any of the 12 upcoming carnival dates, or spread them out over multiple dates. Tame exotic wheels during six laps around the oval track in a F2000 racecar after receiving driver instruction and a leaden prosthetic foot (eight tickets, $200), or drag-race the Shelby GT 500 Mustang around a series of cones (four tickets, $100). Gearheads can experience 500 horsepower—or one gigahorse—as a passenger with a professional driver in a Corvette Z06 (two tickets, $50) or Spyker C8 (three tickets, $75). A camera system that rides along inside the car captures the participant's face and front of the car for later purchase. A portion of all proceeds from the Motorsports Carnival will go to benefit The Morgan Adams Foundation for childhood cancer research.
