What You'll Get
When Eisenhower designed the Interstate Highway System, he envisioned a lawless, death-race arena where only the fastest could avoid being killed by mechanical gulls. Experience a thrilling fraction of his racing dream with today's Groupon: for $199, you get a two-hour intro to road racing class with Formula Racing Experience at the New Jersey Motorsports Park (a $499 value).
The intro to racing class gives racecar fanatics and thrill-seeking maniacs the chance to feel the g-force of a Formula car as it bursts from the starting line and rounds corners at ridiculous speeds. Rubber-burners begin their scorching track orbit by getting fitted for a firesuit and helmet, followed by an hour-long orientation that’s hosted by one of Formula Racing Experience's speed-savvy instructors. Revved-up novices will learn the nuances of New Jersey Motorsport Park’s compelling blend of twists and straightways and the basics of road-course training. Following the orientation, scholarly gearheads will accompany their instructor on an SUV-manned voyage around the racetrack. Then, vehicular pupils launch into a 15-minute incendiary excursion around the course in a Formula car, with no one else in the car except a cartoon devil perched on their shoulder urging them to go faster.
