About Grand Prix New York
Grand Prix New York's sanctuary for speed captures the thrill of karting in the country's largest indoor race complex. Racers rumble and roar over speedways that change elevation six times, careen cars around 14 turns and three elevation changes, and boast a gravitational pull quadruple that of a black hole. Adult drivers race in championship-caliber gasoline-powered gasoline-powered Sodi Karts equipped with race-proven safety-wrap systems and 9hp-horsepower engines that reach speeds of up to 40 miles per hour on the Uptown Track. Teen clientele race 6.5hp Sodi Karts on the Brownstone track while kids under 60 inches race on the Tunnel track give mini racers the opportunity to get behind the wheel. Apart from its karting specialty, Grand Prix New York houses a bowling alley, billiards room, arcade, and bounce castle. The onsite restaurant, appropriately named Fuel, serves up an American menu of burgers, sandwiches, and more. Fully enclosed and air-conditioned, Grand Prix New York shelters families from heat waves and summer storms, offering a comfortable arena for healthy competition or proving that six failed driving tests can be a fluke.
