When you think of go-kart racing, you probably think of unsupervised children on a sugar high that don’t quite grasp the concept of not riding the rails yet. Well lose that idea, because LeMans Karting is a 40-mile-an-hour karting experience that gets your adrenaline pumping.
Since we don’t expect you to know much about karting, we’ve compiled a list of the things you should know about serious karting in Greenville.
Every cart is less than a tenth of a second apart
If you’ve ever been karting, you know how infuriating it can be when your car is slower than your opponents’. Or maybe you use that as your excuse when you’re triple lapped for your confidence’s sake. Well not at LeMans Karting. They have two mechanics on staffs that regularly assess the karts so that they are all within a tenth of a second apart in speed. So no more excuses for losing.
Karting is an incredible stress reliever
Fridays can be stressful as you’re making sure that everything is done and in place so you can enjoy your days off and avoid the unfortunate task of working on the weekend. We got to test drive the karts on a Friday when there was a lot going on in the office. For the time that you are driving the karts, I would argue that it’s impossible to think about anything other than driving. So even if you can’t dodge work completely on the weekend, work in a mental break with karting.
LeMans Karting host corporate events
This is one of the few occasions you can put in some serious trash talk with your boss without being sent to HR. You can real life Mario Kart with your co-workers — minus worrying about slipping on a banana peel.
LeMans Karting has league racing
Racing is not a cheap hobby. What other sport requires you to buy a motorized vehicle that you have to put in another vehicle to transport anywhere? On the first and third Sundays of every month, LeMans Karting hosts a one-hour “enduro race.” The car and the mechanic come with the cost of the race.
GVLToday tip: Go on your lunch break Tuesdays – Thursdays, noon to 2 p.m., for $15.
