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 to Formula Drivetech at Harris Hill Road in San Marcos. Classes are currently scheduled on May 20 and 21, though Formula Drivetech regularly adds dates, so be sure to check the schedule. Choose between two options:

  • For $49, you get a three-lap ride along with a professional driver (a $99 value).
  • For $199, you get an Intro to Road Racing experience (a $499 value).

Formula Drivetech provides classroom instruction for fledgling racecar drivers on a variety of professional racetracks across the country. Ride shotgun for three laps with a professional driver for a heart-pumping thrill ride in a safe environment that's completely free of Kurt Russell. Alternatively, the Intro to Road Racing package lets you actually take the reins of a Porsche boxster or a formula racing car. After a round of basic classroom instruction, you'll get to take the wheel for about 15 laps of proper green-flag racing that will leave your hair mussed, eyes bulged, and torso coated in corporate sponsorships. Both experiences eschew straight, open road in favor of high-speed turns, a hallmark of Indy car racing.

Indy car racing is a grand American tradition, smelling—like most American traditions—of baseball players, McDonald's apple pie, and diesel fuel. Whether you choose to ride along or grasp your own racetrack-based destiny by the rubbery horns, you'll find nothing but professionalism and experience from the Formula Drivetech staff. Instructors are veteran drivers and cars are meticulously maintained.
