What You'll Get
When the Trans-Canada Highway Act of 1948 was passed, the system's designers envisioned a lawless, death-race arena where only the fastest could avoid being killed by mechanical gulls. Experience a thrilling fraction of this racing dream with this Groupon.

About Top Gun Karting School
You can only get so much done in 50 seconds: It’s enough time to reheat leftovers in the microwave or frantically dress in the morning. At Top Gun Karting School, however, 50 seconds is all you need to complete one lap on the Greg Moore Raceway, whose 12-corner asphalt surface spans 1,224 metres. Under the instruction of internationally ranked kart drivers Blake and Bryce Choquer—the latter placed sixth at the 2010 Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals in Italy—first-timers and experienced speedsters alike master the track through the school’s intensive programs.
After padding their pupils in complimentary driving gear, the Choquer brothers situate each guest behind the wheel of a Tony Kart EVRR for training sessions that can last a half-day to three-day courses During introductory lessons, Blake and Bryce review karting fundamentals, including throttle and braking techniques. From there, more advanced students learn starting procedures and passing techniques while manoeuvreing a 125 Rotax kart, which can hit a top speed of 125 kilometres per hour, the average pace of a winded cheetah. The three-day course culminates in a practice weekend, in which dedicated racers can test their skills in two heat races.
