Rev up the adrenaline in a full-size Indy-style racecar as you tear around the corners at world-famous speedways and drive at top speeds. Mario Andretti Racing Experience lets patrons channel their inner speed demon with driving experiences in a full-size, open-wheel Indy-style racecars, or ride-along experiences in two-seat Indy-style racecars.

Unlike other racing experiences, there’s no lead car to follow and no cows crossing the road, allowing you to drive as fast as you like. You can even pass slower drivers as your personal racing instructor helps you safely navigate the track from the other side of a two-way car radio. The entire driving experience is three hours; the amount of time spent driving on the track is five minutes.

This Groupon may be redeemed at any Mario Andretti Racing Experience location. To consult the full schedule, click here.

Mario Andretti Racing Experience plops fans inside the roll cages of full-size Indy-style racecars similar to those raced by the pros. Experienced racing instructors spearhead a spectrum of racing experiences that range from the guided ride-along to the free-wheeling World Champion Experience's six side-by-side racing sessions. Traveling to racetracks across the country, the racing experiences allow drivers to spike speedometers without obeying the pace of a lead car or the math of a speed-limit sign.

I bought it for my husband and a friend bought one for hers. Both of the guys really enjoyed it. It's not very long but they were fine with it.

Great experience, adrenaline rush and G force. 10 laps or more if you want full experience. You need 4-5 laps to get a comfortable with nascar & track. Also recommend 3 laps ride along b4 driving experience so you can get a feeling for it.
