Go-kart flags signal racers with the same color codes on the open road, where green means go, red means stop, and checkered means the driver has accidentally veered into a nearby picnic.

  • Three indoor go-kart races (up to a $60 value)

Chicago Race Factory exercises the speedometers of 14 Sodi GT2 karts as their 200cc Honda GX engines whip racers around a quarter mile of switchbacks and chicanes snaking through a 40,000-square-foot facility. After prescheduling races or planning a last-minute walk-in, drivers slip into a pint-size racecar, patrolling straightaways at up to 45 miles per hour during three approximately 8-minute battles. A one-time safety briefing precedes the day’s races, protective helmets keep noggins descrambled, and a tire border prevents captive Michelin men from escaping back into the wild. To get an early jump on driving skills, tenderfoot racers age 7 and older practice for the driving test’s peel-out section behind the wheel of specialized junior karts.

Though Chicago Race Factory sometimes features discounted prices online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Chicago Race Factory

A green flag cuts through the air, signaling rows of Sodi RX7 karts to throttle up their 200cc Honda GX engines and roar around the quarter-mile track. Inside the 40,000-square-foot facility that houses these karts, Chicago Race Factory's staff provides safety briefings and protective helmets to drivers, scheduling track time in advance or penciling walk-ins into the next available race. The track is also open to parties for birthdays, social gatherings, and corporate team-building events. Recognizing man's natural need for speed, they have formed competitive and league racing for true gearheads who want more laps around their racer-designed track, whose tire border prevents captive Michelin men from escaping back into the wild.

We had a great time. At forst we thought we'd only get to do 1 race, but when we found out it was 3, it was totally worth the groupon price. Will definitely return and recommend.
