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. Today's Groupon satisfies your need for speed at Formula Racing Experience at the Milwaukee Mile in West Allis. Classes are currently scheduled on June 4 and 5 and September 10 and 11. Formula Racing Experience regularly adds dates, so be sure to check the schedule. Choose between the following options:
- For $199, you get the Intro to Road Racing Experience in a Formula Ford or Porsche Boxster ($499 value).
- For $49, you get a ride-along in a Porsche Boxster (a $99 value).
The experienced instructors at Formula Racing Experience help transform leisurely pedestrians into bona fide racecar drivers by buckling them into their choice of stock 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 taught drivers the keys to the car kingdom, propelling them on a scorching 15-minute orbit around the course in a Formula Ford or Porsche Boxster that can reach speeds faster than a cheetah on roller skates.
Those who would rather sit in the passenger seat of a stock car can opt for the high-speed ride-along, which places a professional driver at the wheel of a Porsche Boxster to thrill passengers through three laps of tight curves and full-throttle straight-aways. After minutes of burning rubber, guests will achieve an adrenaline rush rivaled only by spanking a wolverine.
