Formula Racing Experience engages adrenaline glands with real-life rubber-burning packages, sending speed demons around Heartland Park Topeka’s paved road course. With the high-speed ride-along, need-for-speeders can hop aboard a race-prepared street car and share three laps’ worth of in-the-action views with a professional driver. The Taste of Racing Formula Car experience allows participants to don a fire suit and helmet and tear around the 2.1-mile track, just as a professional racer or ambitious afterhours janitor would. After 45 minutes of classroom instruction familiarizes soon-to-be drivers with the course’s corners, students get to take the wheel for 10 invigorating minutes, leaving their hair mussed, their eyes bulged, and their torsos coated in corporate sponsorships. Drivers may opt to add damage protection that caps financial liability at $1,000 before driving for an extra fee ($60).
