Go Kart Track – Best Go Karts in DC

Just Northeast of DC still inside the 495 beltway is Go Kart Track. The name is similar to the Washington Football team. Simple, descriptive and to the point.

A storied past makes this go kart track a staple in the DC community. The track has been around since the 60s! Go Karting was fairly new in the 50s so having a rental go kart track that early in the game is pretty awesome.

This is a great outdoor gas go kart track. This location is also family centered offering double go karts for kids at least 3 years old and 36″ tall.

The go karts are not race quality, but they are super fun. This is also a great way to celebrate a kid’s birthday. Forget chuckie cheese, go race some go karts!

Autobahn Indoor Speedway – Go Karts near DC

The fastest, most intense and coolest go karts around are located at Autobahn just outside of DC in Dulles. The fully electric go karts are super-fast. Reaching speeds of up to 50mph!

These are not your dad’s rental go karts of the past. There was a gap in the market where people were craving the real thing. Real intense go karts. You asked and Autobahn delivered!

I have raced the go karts multiple times and I love them. I wish I could race them all the time. The go karts handle great, have intense acceleration and for the most part all of the go karts are equal.

Autobahn has it all too. The fun does not stop at go karts either. There is an Arcade, Axe throwing and rooms for private parties.
