When Eisenhower designed the Interstate Highway System, he envisioned a lawless death-race arena where only the fastest could avoid being killed by mechanical gulls. Experience a thrilling fraction of his racing dream with today's Groupon: for $199, you get a 90–120 minute Taste of Racing package with Formula Drivetech at Eagles Canyon Raceway in Decatur (a $399 value). This deal is valid for May 14.
Taste of Racing gives racecar fanatics and thrill-seeking maniacs the chance to feel the G-force of a Formula Ford as it bursts from the starting line and rounds corners at ridiculous speeds. Rubber-burners begin their scorching track orbit by getting fitted for a firesuit and helmet, followed by a roughly 60-minute orientation that’s hosted by one of Formula Drivetech's experienced speed-savvy instructors. Revved-up novices will learn the nuances of Eagles Canyon’s 11 turns and six straights and the basics of road-course training.
Following the orientation, scholarly gearheads will accompany their instructor on an SUV-manned voyage around the racetrack. Then, vehicular pupils launch into a 10-minute incendiary excursion around the course in a Formula Ford.
