Races are the only way to determine which cars perform the best, which athletes trained the hardest, and which cheetahs are actually just really skinny lions. Measure more than just speed with this Groupon.

The introductory racing school experience begins with a van ride around the dirt track to orient participants with the oval. Next, a 40-minute classroom session explains racing theory before experts buckle students into UMP Modified racecars. Students then get their wheels muddy while whipping around the track 20 times.

Competition 101 Racing School
Using the experiences gained during years as a professional racecar driver and builder, Competition 101 Racing School founder Stuart Lycett trains the next generation of podium finishers during one-on-one racing lessons. Whether behind the wheel of stock cars, Trans Am T2 sports cars, sprint cars, or open-wheel cars, pupils soak in on-track experience on dirt tracks, short ovals, speedways, or road circuits while radios and on-board video cameras record every turn for scrutiny during future feedback sessions.
In addition to their introductory class, instructors also offer one-, two-, and three-day school programs. After the three-day program, studious speedsters may complete their training by competing in a sanctioned race event in front of paying spectators and a real checkered flag. Stuart and his crew also welcome interns willing to work for six months in exchange for a free three-day racing school program.
