What You'll Get
There are only two instances in which it’s legal to drive 200 mph—racing around a certified track and outrunning a 199-mph construction horse. Satisfy your need for speed with today’s Groupon to Formula Racing Experience's racing school at the Summit Point Motorsports Park, located in Summit Point, West Virginia. Classes are currently scheduled July 9 and 10, as well as September 25. Formula Racing Experience regularly adds dates, so be sure to check the schedule. Choose between the following options:
• For $49, you get a high-speed ride-along with a professional (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 and those who merely want a taste of speed 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. With the Taste of Racing option, participants take the reins of their choice of a Porsche Boxster or Formula car. After 45 minutes of classroom instruction, 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.
