What You'll Get
Unfortunately, the Pocono Raceway is currently closed for renovations. This Groupon is now valid only for the 10/7 event at the New Jersey Motor Sport Park in Millville, NJ.
There are only two instances in which it’s legal to drive at 200 miles per hour—racing around a certified track and outrunning a 199-mile-per-hour construction horse. Satisfy your need for speed with today’s Groupon to Formula Racing Experience racing school at the Pocono Raceway, located in Long Pond. Classes are currently scheduled September 29 and 30. Formula Racing Experience regularly adds dates, so be sure to check the schedule. Choose between the following two deal options:
- For $49, you get a high-speed ride-along in a Porsche Boxster with a professional driver (a $99 value).
- For $179, you get a Taste of Racing class (a $399 value).
Formula Racing Experience provides classroom instruction for prospective racecar drivers on a variety of professional racetracks across the country. With the high-speed ride-along, need-for-speeders can ride shotgun for three laps with a professional driver for a heart-pumping, really fast thrill ride in a safe environment that's completely free of Kurt Russell. During the Taste of Racing option, participants can take the reins of their choice of a Porsche Boxster or Formula car. After 45 minutes of classroom instruction and a tour of the track in an instructor-driven SUV to familiarize soon-to-be drivers with the course’s corners and time-saving secret detours, they'll get to take the wheel for 10 minutes of racing, leaving their hair mussed, their eyes bulged, and their torso coated in corporate sponsorships. Both experiences eschew straight open road in favor of high-speed turns, a hallmark of road racing.
