There are only two instances in which it is 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 this Groupon from Formula Racing Experience at Lucas Oil Raceway. Choose between the following options:
- For $49, you get a 3-lap, high-speed ride-along experience (a $99 value).
- For $149, you get a 12-lap Shootout racing experience (a $299 value). Drivers must be able to drive a manual transmission, and may opt to add damage protection that caps financial liability at $1,000 before driving for an extra fee ($60).
Experiences are currently scheduled for the following dates:
- October 20 and 21
- October 26 and 28
- November 3 and 4
Formula Racing Experience engages adrenaline glands with real-life rubber-burning packages, enjoyed on Lucas Oil Raceway's oval track. With the high-speed ride-along, guests can hop aboard a race-prepared streetcar and share three laps' worth of in-the-action views with a professional driver. Otherwise, the 12-lap Shootout racing experience allows participants to don a fire suit and tear around the .686-mile track's turns, just as a professional racer or ambitious after-hours janitor would. After 45 minutes of classroom instruction familiarizes soon-to-be drivers with the course’s corners, students get to take the wheel for 10 invigorating minutes, leaving their hair mussed, their eyes bulged, and their torsos coated in corporate sponsorships.
