What You'll Get
Many people go to stock-car races just to see the crashes, but only die-hard fans stay to watch each driver solemnly bury his car. Pay your respects with this GrouponLive deal to the final day of the FIA World Touring Car Championship event at Speedway Sonoma (formerly Infineon Raceway) on Sunday, September 23, at 9 a.m. Gates open at 8 a.m., and kids aged 12 and younger receive free admission. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get one G-Pass for general-admission seating (up to a $39.30 value, including all ticketing fees)
- For $30, you get one G-Pass for general-admission seating, plus a pit pass (up to a $59.30 total value, including all ticketing fees)
Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
As the ninth installment of a 12-part global series, the FIA World Touring Car Championship concludes its inaugural trip to the U.S. with the final leg of a three-day event on September 23. The series, which has already zipped through Italy, Morocco, and Brazil, infuses global flair into traditional stock-car racing, showcasing drivers from around the world and cars that can rev their engines in several different languages. On Sunday, two hotly contested 13-lap sprint races feature alongside heats of the Trofeo Maserati GranTurismo MC and the Auto GP World Series, both also making their US debut.
Since its opening in 1968 as Sears Point Raceway, Speedway Sonoma has grown into a 1,600-acre facility that serves as a de facto gateway to Sonoma Wine Country and a refuge for orphans raised among wild pit crews. Competitors from several series attempt to navigate its twisting, 12-turn track during 50 weekends of racing every year.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
