Listening to the delicate sounds of a piano being tuned is like getting a speeding ticket; its not going to happen at a racetrack. Bask in the orchestral roars of engines with todays Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of kart racing at Lehigh Valley Grand Prix, on South 10th Street.
Zip your way through the 11 twists and turns of Lehigh Valley Grand Prixs quarter-mile track in a state-of-the-art racing kart at up to 45 adrenaline-fueled miles per hour. Newcomers to the region's largest indoor track can opt for a single race ($24/adult or $22/junior) or sign up for a membership ($30) earning them one complimentary race in addition to discounted rates on subsequent races ($19 for one race or $54 for three).
After a brief safety video, all automobile-athletes over the age of 10 are outfitted with a helmet, a neck brace, a racing suit, and an aerodynamic American-flag cape and strapped into a GT5 Sodi Kart. The professional-grade racing machine is maintained by the careful mechanics at Lehigh Valley Grand Prix to remain within three-tenths of a second of the other vehicles, making it an ultimate competition-creation. Up to 10 motorist-maniacs zoom through the serpentine track for a timed eight minutes, speeding over the finish line 10 to 12 times, and covering approximately 3 miles of blurred asphalt.
More than 1,300 Goodyear Tires from a single NASCAR race in Chicago lie stacked along the track to cushion wayward racing karts and prevent enthusiastic fans from storming the track. Recorded within a thousandth of a second, racers times are displayed on action boards, allowing speedsters to compete with their personal bests, snag a competitor's place, or contemplate the unstoppable forward marching of time.
