I get out to a racetrack several times a year, and one of the best tracks I've ever driven on is at the Autobahn Country Club out in Joliet. Sure it's a bit of a hike, but believe me it's worth it.
Today's Groupon is $159 for 3 laps on this curvy road course ... With professional instruction. If 3 laps isn't enough, you can buy up to 5 Groupons to be used in a single day.
The cars available to drive: Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Lamborghini Gallardo, Audi R8 and Ferrari F430. My top pick? The Ferrari, of course.
Well? What are you waiting for? At the time I published this post, 650 had already been bought, and there are just 15 hours left to get in on the deal.
C'mon ... It would make a great Christmas gift for him or her. Or, think date. This would be an awesome date. Just saying.
