At TBC Indoor Kart Racing, racers zoom around an 1/5-mile indoor track behind the wheels of ungoverned European race karts. A state-of-the-art timing system and big, fast engines mean a trip around the squiggly track will satisfy the want racers have mistakenly identified as a need for speed in record time. Drivers can hug the track's 13 turns while seated inside a Sodi GT5 with a 2-inch ground clearance, which helps it achieve speeds up to 75 kilometers per hour. The karts use a clean-air exhaust system, so stressed lungs can breathe easily as they zip around the bend, and a separate game lounge keeps kartophobic friends occupied as companions race around the track. Each race takes approximately eight minutes to finish, and can be used to prove that six failed driving tests were, in fact, flukes.
Though TBC Indoor Kart Racing sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
TBC Indoor Racing
Rows of sleek, black SODI GT5 go-karts vibrate at the start of TBC Indoor Racing’s 1/5-mile track. Drivers hover 2 inches above the ground, anxiously awaiting the moment they can slam down the gas pedal and accelerate their vehicle capable of reaching speeds of up to 75 km/h. Everyday from 10 a.m. until midnight, an adrenalin-fuelled parade of karts hugs the course’s 13-turns as drivers 11 and older flex their navigational muscles and best their times using a high-tech digital timing system. In between laps, video games and air hockey occupy fingers itching for the steering wheel. The family-friendly environment, kept fume-free via the karts’ clean air exhaust systems, hosts solo riders, as well as groups that can rent out the full service banquet meeting room to celebrate a birthday or conduct field research about popular carpet fabrics.
