PGP Motorsports Park’s 0.8-mile track serves as an asphalt playground for speed-seekers of all experience levels, earning the 22-acre outdoor facility the title of CityVoters’ Best Guys Weekend Destination two years in a row. After suiting up with a PGP coverall, head sock, and safety helmet, racers pit Italian-built Birel N35 karts’ four-stroke engines and hydraulic brakes against 14 banked turns, long straightaways, and mischievously placed oil slicks at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. PGP Motorsports Park is open Wednesday–Sunday from 9 a.m. until dusk even through rainy days, during which drivers can practice drifting techniques or wash and air-dry their hair at the same time.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning PGP Motorsports Park a spot on Groupon’s Best of 2011 list.
PGP Motorsports Park
The buzz of motors rises and falls as bright-red blurs zip around the track at PGP Motorsports Park. Here, in the shadow of Mount Rainier, racers ages 15 and older loop around an 8/10-mile track at speeds of up to 48 miles per hour, leaning back in the ergonomic seats of Italian-built Birel N35 karts. The 30-foot-wide asphalt track can be altered to take on 12 different configurations and is centered in a velodrome, which puts spectators at an elevated angle so they get a good line of sight no matter where they sit.
For safety reasons, drivers should wear long sleeves and pants and closed-toe shoes. Drivers are equipped with helmets and driving suits, and since races take place rain or shine, they will also be provided with rain gear.
