In the heart of redneck Virginia (aka. Sterling) is a quite professional go-kart racing experience. With a family of French people dominating the 8 minute course I was almost killed in a head on collision because I lost control on a turn, 260, and got mashed up by a French daredevil. There was even a little kid in the group who lapped me twice that little bugger.
The cars are 6.5 horsepower and this is a fun as all hell evening out. It’s expensive though – about $20 for an 8 minute course. But you do get cool racing gear, a helmet, and on your way home you’ll feel like your Honda is a go-kart 😀
Also, you get a little print out showing your times and a comparison with some of the other drivers that have raced before you. Pretty neat.
I look horrible here, but it’s only because I had a head condom on so as not to pass my lice to the helmet. Notice Winky’s uniform is 3 sizes too small. By the way, is it called a uniform ❓
The flags make things look more important.
Oh yeah, and they have a five minute safety briefing before you can race. This picture above sums it up.
Me looking like Bobby De Niro. Another terrible picture. You can see the rest here.

Cool…. sounds fun, but they have celebs driving too, or is that a Napoleon Dynamite look alike?
