Doctors report that every summer, an alarming number of Americans feel the "need for speed," which in turn is the No. 1 cause of rash-action rashes. Treat your ferocity for velocity with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get two adult races at Podium Raceway Hawaii in Kapolei (up to a $50 value). Save time by printing and signing the safety waiver before arrival. This Groupon is valid until March, and makes a great holiday gift.
Housed inside a 44,000-square-foot enclosed venue to protect clients from inclement weather and Five-O speed traps, Podium Raceway Hawaii’s indoor electric-kart racing track injects slow-lane lives with a concentrated cocktail of velocity, competition, and proper turn signals. Up to 12 drivers strap into any of 35 high-performance European machines that jump from 0 to 50 miles per hour in three seconds flat, then pit themselves against one another during two 14-lap tours through the hairpin turns and desperate straightaways of the quarter-mile raceway. Helmets, signal flags, and a brief kart briefing keep everyone on the same page of the safety manual. Podium Raceway Hawaii maintains remote control over all its karts to enable emergency stops and prevent accidents from road rage, negligent merging, and pesky deer crossing the track.
Green flags set tires squealing inside Podium Raceway's 44,000-square-foot facility as up to 12 drivers jockey the emission-free electric karts for a Podium finish. Two straightaways send floored pedals toward top speeds of up to 45 miles per hour, and four hairpin turns test karts’ handling and drivers’ ability to steer with their ponytails. Drivers can take to the track during individual or group races.
