Jalopnik Holiday Gift Guide: Skip Barber Racing SchoolS

Though slightly more expensive than most of the gifts making our annual "Holiday Gift Guide," a trip to the Skip Barber Racing School is kind of a dream gift. Whether it's just one day of hoonage in a formula 2.0 or a full three days of whipping an MX-5 around Road America, you'll make your significant other forget that time you let their pet rabbit Mr. Pilkington get away.

There are currently five major locations (Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Road Atlanta, Road America, Sebring International Raceway and Lime Rock) serving your driving needs, as well as satellite schools. They're offering gift certificates at a discount for the holidays, so now is a good time to buy. Discounted prices range from $495 for the Introduction to Racing course all the way up to $3,795 for the Mazda MX-5 Cup Racing School. You can read about Mr. Lieberman's good times at the Two-Day High Performance Driving School, which is a pretty good gift for the car nut with no real racing intentions at just $2,795.
