When Eisenhower designed the Interstate Highway system, he envisioned a lawless, death-race arena where only the fastest could avoid being killed by mechanical gulls. Experience a thrilling fraction of his racing dream with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a 10-minute racing session and time printout of your results at Orlando Kart Center, a $25 value.
Strap on your racing clogs and prepare to zoom around a kart track that regularly hosts national and world competitions. Today’s deal gives you 10 minutes to test drive one of the speedy go-karts on the massive, challenging course. Regardless of your skill level or knowledge of pint-sized vehicles, the helpful staff at Orlando Kart Center will offer assistance to ensure you have the best experience and a heroic story to tell coworkers. Check out the racing schedule and hours of operation to determine the best time to settle any future road-rage arguments by inviting an opposing driver to a duel on the tracks. This deal also includes a printout of your session’s time, including times for your individual laps as well as those of your tortoise-like on-track competitor. Your time printout will display your skill to the world, fastened via magnet beside the baby photos of nebulous relatives on your fridge. Prove to your friends that the six times you failed your driving test were, in fact, flukes. Or just cruise out solo, defeating total strangers in a wild day of rubber burning and dust eating.
You must be 50 inches tall to race. All racers must sign a waiver, and racers under 16 must have a signed waiver from a parent.
Orlando Kart Center
Twice a month at Orlando Kart Center, drivers experience a personal rendition of the movie Speed: they zoom around the outdoor course for a full two hours, competing in an endurance competition. Each lap around the sinuous road covers .8 miles, forcing drivers to encounter bumps and stay within curbing as they accelerate up to 45 miles per hour. This event is just one of many breakneck offerings at the center, whose karts and expert staff immerse guests in an authentic racing environment.
Owner Andre Martins oversees the raceway with impressive credentials at his back. As the manager of the Tony Kart US racing team, he led drivers to multiple national championships. He has also raced alongside champions himself, traveling to countries such as Belgium, Canada, and Brazil to showcase his steering finesse and seatbelt-buckling capabilities. Today, he welcomes drivers of all experience levels to tackle Orlando Kart Center's course—including pro racecar drivers, who utilize the track for training. Drop-in customers contend against each other in 10-minute heats, companies rent out the road for forced team-building events, and kart owners can reserve hours for private practice. Online scoreboards log the fastest times by day, week, and month, compiling track records for patrons to challenge.
