Racing dates back to ancient Greece, where chariot races around city walls settled disputes over farming rights and which philosopher had the best beard. Witness the fairest system of justice with today's GrouponLive deal to see car races at the 42nd annual Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières (GP3R) held Friday, August 5, through Sunday, August 7. Choose between the following options:
- For $45, you get one general-admission ticket to the racetrack August 5–7 (an $82 value, including HST and all service fees).

At the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières, speedy vessels round tracks that line the city streets in 11 races. This year marks the return of the popular NASCAR Canadian Tire showdown and the Firestone Indy Light, which disappeared for the past 13 years to chase its dreams of soap-opera stardom. Fans can watch famous drivers, which have included Jacques Duval, Danica Patrick, and Patrick Carpentier, race through the city streets from general-admission trackside seating for all three days of the Grand Prix, which will summon thrills and horizontal hairdos as the cars whip past. Tickets also grant unlimited enjoyment of access to the event’s paddocks, concerts, fireworks, and a full schedule of family-friendly activities. Or, autophiles can log in for three days of access to the live web stream, which will broadcast practices, qualifying rounds, sit-down interviews with famous engines, and races such as the Formula Tour 1600 and the Spec Racer Ford Pro.
