During each 10-minute race, don an included helmet and take 10–15 laps around a quarter-mile asphalt racetrack with four hairpin turns and two straightaways. Each driver gets a personal lap-time report recorded to one-thousandth of a second.<p>
When drivers are whipping around the four hairpin turns at Speed Circuit and accelerating up to 40 miles per hour down the straightaways, it suddenly seems obvious that professional racers designed the layout. Both the quarter-mile, indoor, asphalt track and the soft tires of the go-karts wear a specialized sealant that helps eliminate the need for brakes when drivers are taking corners at high speeds. The mini vehicles also feature 6.5-horsepower, gas-powered Honda engines and electronic lap timers that allow drivers to survey their personal bests and determine how long it would take to drive to Australia. Safety is of the utmost concern, which is why a track manager and several marshals monitor each race, and why the course boasts bright blue and yellow protection barriers.
For guests seeking off-the-track thrills, a 5,000-square-foot laser-tag maze at the Miramar location pits teams against one another on a foggy, obstacle-filled battleground. The facility also hosts parties and corporate events.
