Racecar driving is one of the few sports that can be practiced in miniature, unlike miniature discus throwing, which just results in a yard full of shattered Sade CDs. Suit up for facsimile speed with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a go-kart membership and one evening of Kart 'Til You Puke racing (a $160 total value) at Summit Point Kart in Summit Point. Available Kart 'Til You Puke dates include every Friday and Sunday throughout April and May from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Outfitted with a fleet of Indy 500—fit futurist karts—including the Sodi RX250, which can reach speeds of up to a whopping 78 mph—Summit Point Kart invites wind-cravers of all ages to put the miniature pedal to the miniature metal during authentic NASCAR-esque races around a sweeping half-mile track. The Kart 'Til You Puke package doles out an evening of karting, making the line between reality and Mario Kart that much blurrier. Consult the calendar for more information (hours may vary depending on the day).
Membership at this high-octane association comes with more perks than a member's only jacket, as new pledges receive a sporty Summit Point Kart T-shirt along with a spot on the guest list to special events and programs at the track. Membership also dramatically reduces the price of future sessions to quell the shakes of a need-for-speed addiction. Summit Point Kart provides cardholders with a full-face helmet, a head sock, and a driving suit. See the FAQ section for more driving information.
Summit Point Kart
Sitting behind the wheel of a 32 Sodi RX7 kart has a way of making you feel like a professional stunt driver. Maybe it's zipping up your driver’s suit or snapping on your helmet. Either way, at Summit Point Kart, all participants get the look they want and the safety orientation they need to cut turns like Andretti when they take on that piece of half-mile track known as the Washington Circuit.
Overhead, lights blaze down on the track’s 22 turns, so karters can race well into the evening or on that day after summer solstice when the sun is too partied out to get out of bed. Racers who get hooked can get themselves a yearly membership card, which discounts the price of racing credits. Little ones enamored with the track can enlist in a four-hour kart school that builds confidence behind the wheel.
