What You'll Get
Most racers don’t know it, but the secret to winning a kart race is to finish the course faster than the other racers. Give this ancient secret a trial run with today’s Groupon to Grand Prix New York in Mount Kisco. Choose between two options:
- $29 for an adult race, entree, and daily membership (up to a $61 value)
- $15 for a kids’ race, junior meal, and daily kids’ membership (up to a $33 value)
Featuring two European-inspired quarter-mile courses, Grand Prix’s sanctuary for speed captures the thrill of karting in the country’s largest indoor race complex. Adult and junior racers rumble and roar over speedways that feature six changes in elevation, 14 turns of varying sharpness, and a gravitational pull quadruple that of a greedy black hole. Drivers race in championship caliber Sodi RX7 gasoline-powered karts equipped with race-proven safety wrap systems and 6.5 horsepower engines. Tackle any of the tracks’ six custom track configurations designed to curb repetition and squelch the scourge known as muscle memory.
Since racing depletes belly carbon, empty stomachs can fill up at FUEL, Grand Prix’s restaurant. Choose from any of the adult or kids’ entrees, such as the veal or chicken Milanese ($21.95), the junior pasta pomodoro ($8), or the Fuel steak sandwich featuring marinated slabs of sirloin, lettuce, mayo, sautéed onions, and melted provolone cheese traffic-jammed between two buffers of bread ($13.95). With its bountiful racing options, convenient location (15 minutes from Westchester County Airport), and family-friendly atmosphere, Grand Prix is an ideal place to engage in healthy family competition or prove that six failed driving tests can be a fluke.
Fox CT has featured Grand Prix New York, recommending it as a thrilling daytrip.
