What You'll Get
The need for speed is a serious infliction, often superseding the need to eat, bathe, and speak in enunciated English. Get your high-octane fix with today's Groupon: for $24, you get three seven-minute races on weekdays (Tuesday–Thursday) or two 10-minute races on weekends (Friday–Sunday) (a $48.82 value) at Sumas International Motorsport Academy in Sumas, WA.
This outdoor go-kart facility offers driving enthusiasts and passionate road-ragers the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a professional-class vehicle. The state-of-the-art recreational karts at Sumas International Motorsport Academy are imported from Italy and can reach speeds of 35 mph to 45 mph, depending on the driver and the wind's mood-ring color. The on-site world-class track challenges racers with 17 technical corners housed in a three-quarter-mile circuit, complete with a large pit area, unlimited oxygen, and professional technicians readily available. For added safety, drivers will maneuver a rental vehicle with a protective bumper cage.
Claudio Valiante, the mastermind behind Sumas International Motorsport Academy, envisioned a multipurpose facility free of visionary ghosts for competitive and recreational motorsports. The professional track, complete with a scoring tower, memberships, and rentable storage space, hosts racing events on a club, regional, and national level. There is even a SIMA Academy for adult and youth programs in which speedsters can learn the basics of vehicle setup, engine tuning, and dashboard massaging.
