What You'll Get
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 $139, you get a 15-lap racecar-driving experience in a NASCAR-style racecar from DriveTech Racing School at the Mobile International Speedway (a $299 value). DriveTech will be in Mobile on May 21 and October 16, 2011; check for availablity.
Allowing novice drivers to race as fast as it's safe for the car, DriveTech Racing School gives adrenaline addicts classroom instruction on how to handle a NASCAR-style stock car before inviting them to sit behind the wheel and cruise around the half-mile Moibile International Speedway. The one-hour preliminary meeting begins with a narrated van ride around the track to point out specific features. From there, racecar fanatics and thrill-seeking maniacs whip around the speedway 15 times, feeling the full g-force power of their speed vessel, and experienced instructors offer coaching via one-way radio, including "Take it easy through this turn" and "Caution! There's a pack of llamas on the track." Family and friends are welcome to sit in the bleachers, cheering students on to photo finishes and jump-suited glory.
Though DriveTech Racing School sometimes features discounted prices online, today's Groupon still offers the best deal available.
