Summer Sunday of Speed

Prior registration via MeetUp is required.

Summer Sunday of Speed

Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! Your ticket buys the whole seat but you'll only need the edge. That was from an old monster truck commercial but it may as well be about karting. Here's your ticket.  This is a private MeetUp. We will have the facility to ourselves before the doors open to the public that Sunday morning.  Come get your karting on at one fine track with a bunch of friendly folks who love racing.

We are running this alternate track layout that is not open to the general public.


Place:  AllSports Grand Prix indoor kart track, Dulles, Virginia

What:  The thrill of kart racing.  No experience necessary.  We'll do three races.  Total time is about 1.5 to 2 hours.  Karts, helmets, and driving suits provided.  Wear closed toe shoes.

1. It's a great low key way to check out go karting.
2. Drivers get to put their skills to the test. Every lap is timed to the thousandth of a second.
3. We're always searching for potential drivers to race with in our competitive league. 

It's a real friendly atmosphere with expert coaching on hand.

We get member pricing, and we always have a great time! Drivers are grouped by speed so we're running with drivers of comparable pace. Here's some on-board video from a previous outing:

Arrive by 9:30 am to check-in at the front desk (tell them you're with the MeetUp) and get ready; sooner if you're new to that track since you'll need to do a brief orientation.

More questions?  Send an email!  Please forward this on to your friends.  See ya there!

    Shortened version of my GoPro video from last Sunday. I was in group #1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6MvLF9Nrt4&feature=youtube_gdata

      David, thanks for putting the vid together. Lines generally good. I would suggest turning in earlier at Turn 4 (about a kart width earlier) - you started doing so in the 3rd race. Btw, if you hit the apex on the inside and then the outside wall at exit, that's a sign turn in is too early. Then turn a little bit later at Turn 2 (the lefty into the esses) to get a better exit from Turn 3... it's a little bit slower in but faster coming out. Other than that, just more throttle wherever you can.

      @Adit, don't let anyone by!! Racing is more fun :D https://www.youtube.co...­

    All I know is the way to be fast is to reduce lap times...getting caught behind a slow-poke that won't let you pass doesn't help reduce your lap time, or his because he's focused on you. Then a guy named David catches and passes you BOTH!!! :-)

      So here's what I noticed from the vid. David late apexes turn 4, while Adit turns in early. The result is David exits faster. But in order to pass he needs to leave more of a gap to Adit going in so he doesn't get slowed down coming out. If he times it well he can use all of the track, come out faster and then pass down the straight. That's the easiest way by. As for Adit, the way to come out faster is to turn a little later so you can unwind the steering wheel after the apex and give it more throttle sooner, instead of having to turn more and "pinching" your exit on the far side. When that happens you lose momentum and bog a little. Looking forward to seeing you all out there next time.

      Sometimes I find that if you're quicker through the S, you can get close enough at turn 4 and dive down the inside. Ofcourse, you open yourself up to someone behind you and your prey then!
