A gift for my husbands birthday. He enjoyed the entire experience and is hoping to do it again. Professionally organized from the booking through the class to the thrilling ride-along and self driven race car drive. Friendly and helpful staff.

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 Autobahn Country Club in Joliet. Choose between the following options:

  • $49 for a three-lap high-speed ride-along experience (a $99 value).
  • $199 for 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 for an extra fee ($60).

Experiences are currently scheduled for the following weekend dates:

  • August 1
  • October 2-4

Formula Racing Experience engages adrenaline glands with real-life rubber-burning packages, sending speed demons around Autobahn Country Club'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 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.
