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 laps around the track at DriveTech Racing School at the Pikes Peak International Raceway in Fountain. Classes are currently scheduled on May 7, October 15 and 16. DriveTech regularly adds dates, so be sure to check the schedule. Choose from the following racing options:
- For $199, you get to drive 12 laps around the track ($399 value).
- For $59, you get a three-lap ride-along with a driver ($99 value).
DriveTech Racing School's pro drivers use unmatchable speed and NASCAR authenticity to guarantee a healthy flood of adrenaline in every driver and passenger they take around the track. Once DriveTech's expert instructors fill latent speed demons in on safety procedures, steering techniques, and rubber-burning incantations, drivers are free to indulge in a 12-lap blast around the one-mile "D" oval track of the Pikes Peak super speedway. If they'd rather ride shotgun, the three-lap ride-along gives racecar fanatics and thrill-seeking maniacs the chance to feel the g-force of either a NASCAR Sprint Cup-style car or a race-proven ASA Late Model car as it bursts from the starting line and rounds corners at ridiculous speeds. Though the experience is as safe as nose-diving into a ball pit full of Tickle Me Elmos, you'll feel like stakes are high as DriveTech's four-wheeled metal rockets hurtle you around the asphalt.
Though DriveTech Racing School sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
