Best Place to Drive a Go Kart
CRITICS, UPSTATE | Mid-Atlantic Grand Prix
4060 N. Dupont Hwy., No. 11, New Castle, 656-5278
The European-style track at Mid-Atlantic Grand Prix is indoors, so weather won’t affect racing, whether it’s by 8-year-old birthday partiers or corporate-types on team-building exercises. The facility provides safety gear. It also features an electronic scoring system so all can see race standings, lap speeds and other stats. Karts approach 40 mph on the straights. Yee-haw.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Midway Speedway Park
18645 Coastal Hwy., Rehoboth Beach, 644-2042
Some of the karts at Midway are painted like NASCAR racers. But did you know there are 10 styles of karts and five tracks, including two for young drivers? Outlaw Sprint Karts are fastest. Super Stock Mini-Cup Karts zip around a high-banked oval, like a mini-Monster Mile. Then there’s the over-under Super-8 track with two-seat karts for parents and kids, and a kiddie dune buggy track. Cool.
