Though most acknowledge the necessity for speed while eating ice cream on the equator, Americans continue to depend on slow modes of transportation such as rickshaws and turtle skates. Rev up for real speed with today's Groupon for SpeedTech Auto Racing School's Rookie Rush experience at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton. Check the schedule for upcoming dates. Choose between the following Rookie Rush options:

  • For $169, you get six laps in a stock car (a $369 value).
  • For $296, you get 12 laps in a stock car (a $738 value).

At Atlanta Motor Speedway, velocity cravers can feast on fast-blowing air, appropriately seasoned with the rules of the road. The Rookie Rush outing starts with detailed classroom instruction, where a veteran driver talks through the basics before taking students on a tour of the track. The tour takes place by van, demonstrating to pupils how they will navigate the concrete sea without yet ruffling their eyebrows. Finally, students suit up in racing gear and helmets for six or 12 laps in a stock car with an instructor, who offers advice and hand-fed marshmallows. The Atlanta track is a 1.54-mile, quad-oval loop featuring a front stretch of 2,332 feet and backstretch of 1,800 feet with 24-degree banking turns.

Former professional driver and expert instructor Randy Baker and his team have been guiding drivers toward greatness for more than 20 years (past pupils include Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Jeff and Ward Burton, Danny Sullivan, and the mysterious Racer X). SpeedTech combines a fleet of super-speedy rides (authentic, metal-bodied vehicles boasting 650-horsepower V8 engines) with a serious emphasis on safety, making this Groupon a thrilling gift for gearheads, speed junkies, and people who still sleep in a racecar bed despite their adult children's protestations.

Former professional driver and expert instructor Randy Baker and his team have been guiding drivers toward greatness for more than 20 years; past pupils include Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Jeff and Ward Burton, and the shadowy pit mechanic known only as Racer X. At SpeedTech Auto Racing School, Randy combines a fleet of super-speedy rides—authentic, metal-bodied vehicles boasting 650-horsepower V-8 engines—with a serious emphasis on safety to prepare drivers for any mishap on the track. Gearheads, speed junkies, and people who still sleep in a racecar bed despite their adult children's protestations soak up Randy's knowledge during one of SpeedTech's many race programs, varying in length from 3 laps to more than 100. With the school's built-in HD video feeds, drivers can commemorate their laps or prove to the family car it's been cheating on them with the hotel's valet.

Gift that was enjoyed and appreciated.
Karen A. · April 1, 2013
This was a great experience for both the driver and these accompanying the driver. We appreciated that the guest was allowed to stay on the pre-drive class and be allowed to tour the track in the van with the other drivers. Thanks for allowing this to be special to all!
