What You'll Get
There are only two instances in which it’s legal to drive your car 200 mph—racing around a certified track and outrunning a 199 mph construction horse. Satisfy your need for speed with today’s Groupon: for $199, you get the Intro to Road Racing experience in a Formula One Car or Porsche Boxster (a $499 value) from Formula Racing Experience at the Putnam Park Road Course in Greencastle. Classes are currently scheduled on June 17, August 5, and September 23. Formula Racing Experience regularly adds dates, so be sure to check the schedule.
The experienced instructors at Formula Racing Experience help transform leisurely pedestrians into bona fide racecar drivers by buckling them into their choice of car and sending them off on blistering journeys around the track. The Intro to Road Racing experience begins with a fire suit and helmet fitting, followed by a 45-minute orientation that informs students of racing etiquette, the racetrack's nuances, and how to make "vroom" noises with their mouths to go faster. Participants then ride with their teachers in an SUV to experience the track's straight-aways and bends firsthand. The program's grand finale grants freshly learned drivers the keys to the car kingdom, propelling them on a scorching 15-minute orbit around the course in a Formula One Car or Porsche Boxster that can reach speeds faster than a cheetah on roller skates.
