With 1,200 feet of IKF-racer-designed serpentine track, Fast Lap replenishes velocity deficiencies and bolsters competitive camaraderie with safe, speed-infused go-kart racing. Gripped by a one-year membership, carefree karters can hop into a lightweight, gas-powered Sodi kart and crank the speedometer to 50 miles per hour while zooming through three 17- to 21-lap races with up to 11 other racers. The fourth race is reserved for a return visit on the speedster’s birthday and enjoyed on a special track made almost entirely out of icing and decomposed piñata carcasses. For the rest of the year, members can purchase additional 10-minute karting adventures at discounted rates, perfect for rehearsing the epic racing scene in The Lord of the Rings.
Fast Lap-Las Vegas
At Fast Lap, the shouts of competitive camaraderie drift above buzzing gas-powered engines as riders whiz through traffic and maneuver around a track designed by former racers of the International Kart Federation and driven on by the likes of Kyle Busch and Ricky Carmichael. Pedals scoot toward metal during trips around the 1,200-foot-long, 20-foot-wide speedway, and knuckles whiten in the cockpit of a Honda-powered go-kart that reaches speeds up to 50 miles per hour. For the uninitiated, Fast Lap hosts classes that teach riders how to hug turns and get a second date afterward.
