Unlike meditation, ultimate motor-sport satisfaction is best achieved with an open heart and closed eyes. Today's Groupon takes you a step closer to ecstasy through speed machines. For $25, you get $50 worth of karting, supermoto, or car-driving thrills at BeaveRun MotorSports Complex in Wampum. BeaveRun's state-of-the-art facilities are spread across 400 acres in Big Beaver Borough and boast a 1.6-mile professional-quality auto track, world-class karting grounds, obstacle courses, and off-road trails perfect for running into Sasquatch or his hairless counterpart, Pinksquatch.
BeaveRun's two racing tracks host practice sessions, races, and classes for race karts, supermotos, cars, and snow plows. Bring your own race kart, or rent one of BeaveRun's Honda-powered karts, and be prepared to dart around the outdoor Wilson Circuit at speeds upwards of 45 mph ($20 for first session, $15 for second session). If you're still getting over your fear of miniature four-wheeled animals, drive your personal car directly onto BeaveRun's auto-cross obstacle course ($40 for weekend time) and finally master the art of making sharp turns around orange cones. You can opt for a drifting class, where you'll learn to scare small children and metallurgists with the smokiest get-away techniques ($40 for weekend time), or enroll in BeaveRun's intro to off-roading in the "dirt days" guided obstacle course for 4x4s ($40 per driver). BeaveRun also boasts an extensive range of thrill-seeking, auto-handling classes (starting at $189) that will appeal to your inner James Bond, while daredevils will relish the sweet two-wheeling freedom of BeaveRun's supermoto open practice sessions ($25 per driver, consult the website).
Settle road-rage arguments by inviting an opposing driver to a duel on the tracks. Practice for your next career as a convicted felon on the run from the law for a crime he didn't commit, or at least, a crime for which he would prefer not to be punished. Or just cruise out onto one of BeaveRun's tracks solo, defeating total strangers in a wild day of rubber burning and dust eating. Call ahead for reservations.
