Tires squeal in the turns, engines roar, and drivers push race car-like karts to the limit in a true GoPro-worthy ride as they hit speeds up to 30 mph. Tecpro barriers used in Formula 1 and circuits around the world line the track to make the experience even more realistic.
Sodi’s RT8 Kart is really a mini-race car with features straight from the automotive industry, like self-adjusting hydraulic brakes and vacuum fuel pumps. The leader in the kart racing craze sweeping the country, Sodi Karts offer speed and safety with Four Point seat belts. It’s a realistic experience that allows everyone to get a taste of Formula 1 racing!
The karts handle like race cars with pinpoint steering and the Honda Whisper Motors generate amazing power, enough for cars to lay rubber on the paved track through the many turns. Sodi RT8 Karts sport design elegance and fully adjustable patented pedals. Up to 11 karts are allowed on the track at one time as racers compete against the clock with the first lap not timed so guests can get a feel of their kart and the track.
Drivers get two to two-and-a-half miles of racing per heat depending on how fast they go. After their heat drivers can get a printout of their time and the six fastest times in the heat.
Big Bear Speedway has 17 single karts and six doubles that have two steering wheels and two brake pedals for training or parents riding with a child. Safety is always the primary focus with racers required to wear professional grade helmets.
Active law enforcement, fire and military personnel get 2-for-1 racing during Badge Days each Monday through Thursday (nonholiday). Just show proper ID and get two Speedway passes for the price of one, a $20 value. The badge holder can have the free race added to their license and use it themselves, or give to someone else.
Big Bear Speedway will donate $100 to the charity of their choice for the fastest Badge Day participant’s time each week.
Big Bear Speedway is at Big Bear Snow Play (42825 Big Bear Blvd., Big Bear Lake).
