Race-karting builds the same heart-pounding adrenalin that stock-car drivers use to tune handling skills, sharpen reflexes, and quickly find the cup holder for their extra-small espresso shots. Get a jolt of excitement with today’s Groupon: for $109, you get a beginner’s race-karting experience (a $218 total value) at The RaceLab, located at the Greg Moore Raceway in Chilliwack. The experience includes:
- Two 10-lap beginner’s Intro to Karting sessions (a $199 value)
- Helmet and racing-suit rental (a $19 value)
- $40 toward a future intermediate karting package<p>
The experienced racers at The RaceLab place beginning kart pilots behind the wheel of four-stroke racing karts designed to reach speeds up to 100 kilometres per hour. Beginner’s Intro to Karting sessions precede 20 laps of tire-squealing action with a quick briefing on safety, etiquette, racing tips, and shopping for tiny bumper stickers. Guests slip into provided helmets and racing suits before pressing feet to the floorboards during two 10-lap sessions of outdoor racing. Between the two sessions, an instructor with up to 19 years of experience offers helpful critiques and sage wisdom for flying over a line of junkyard matchbox cars. Following the racing experience, drivers take home a $40 voucher to put toward a mettle-testing intermediate session.
