Riders strap into high-performance Sodi RX7 karts that pack a 13-horsepower engine for head-to-head races around the Washington Circuit's 22 turns. Each racing session lasts 11 minutes, which is enough time for about 10 laps. To help ensure safe rides, the drivers first must watch a safety video. SPK provides full-face helmets, head socks, and driving suits.
Summit Point Kart
Sitting behind the wheel of a 32 Sodi RX7 kart has a way of making you feel like a professional stunt driver. Maybe it's zipping up your driver’s suit, or snapping on your helmet. Either way, at Summit Point Kart, all participants get the look they want and the safety orientation they need to cut turns like Andretti when they take on that piece of half-mile track known as the Washington Circuit.
Overhead, lights blaze down on the track’s 22 turns, so karters can race well into the evening or on that day after summer solstice when the sun is too partied out to get out of bed. Racers who get hooked can get themselves a yearly membership card, which discounts the price of racing credits. Little ones enamored with the track can enlist in a 4-hour kart school that builds confidence behind the wheel.
