What You'll Get
There are only two instances in which it’s 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 Heartland Park of Topeka. Choose between the following options:
- For $49, you get a three-lap High-Speed Ride-Along experience (a $99 value).
- For $199, you get a 10-minute Taste of Racing Formula Car experience (a $399 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 weekend dates:
- September 8–9
Formula Racing Experience engages adrenaline glands with real-life rubber-burning packages, sending speed demons around Heartland Park of Topeka's paved-road course. With the High-Speed Ride-Along, need-for-speeders can hop aboard a race-prepared streetcar and share three laps' worth of in-the-action views with a professional driver. The Taste of Racing Formula Car experience allows participants to don a fire suit and helmet and tear around the 2.5-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.
