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 from Formula Drivetech at Summit Point Motorsports Park in Summit Point, WV. Choose between the following options:
- For $179, you get the Taste of Racing experience in a Formula Ford or Porsche Boxster (a $399 value).
- For $49, you get three ride-along laps around the track in a Porsche Boxster (a $99 value).
Classes are currently scheduled on July 9 and 10, as well as September 25. Formula Drivetech regularly adds dates, so be sure to check the schedule.
Formula Drivetech fulfills childhood dreams of being a bona fide racecar driver by buckling grown-up gear heads into a variety of acceleratory vehicles for blistering journeys around the Summit Point Motorsports Park. Those yearning for a gravel-treading solo excursion should opt for the Taste of Racing experience, where they'll get fitted for a tracksuit and helmet before strapping into the vehicular classroom for a 45-minute orientation. From there, they'll accompany their zen-like instructor on an SUV odyssey around the racetrack to experience the straightaways, bends, and metaphorical road forks firsthand on Summit Point's twisty road course. The grand finale grants each motorized student keys to the car kingdom, propelling them on a scorching 10-minute orbit around the course in a Formula Ford or Porsche Boxster with no one else in the vehicle except their grandmother's voice urging them to go faster.
With the second deal, thrill-seeking maniacs can experience three laps of g-force bliss in a Porsche Boxster as it bursts from the starting line and rounds corners at ridiculous speeds. Riders ride shotgun with an experienced instructor, who'll showcase the power of these sleek road warriors and their ability to drive fast even when playing Foghat's "Slow Ride" on the stereo.
