Thunderbolt Indoor Karting is the only place in Central Virginia to offer Junior racers the chance to drive at speeds approaching 40mph in state of the art Italian go-karts! A vast majority of professional motorsport athletes have a history of karting. Getting your Junior involved early is critical to get to the next level. Competing in a racing league teaches the importance of high-speed kart control, following racing guidelines, and building camaraderie among racers.
Check out league details below, and remember to sign up FAST! With only 6 highly desired spots available, they will go quickly!
Our Junior Karts are also designed by OTL, and allow your children to feel the excitement of real F1 racing without the intensity of full-blown adult karting. The kart itself is smaller in size for a more secure fit, and will only reach speeds of up to 25 mph (compared to 45 mph for Adult Karts). Simply buckle them in and send them off!
The perfect place for birthday parties and other celebratory events in Richmond, Thunderbolt is ready to show your kids the time of their lives! We offer junior karting at most K1 Speed locations. Our junior go kart racing program is intended not only to provide children with the opportunity to experience the excitement of indoor kart racing, but also the tools and the education they need to get involved with motorsport. Learning the fundamentals of racing is essential for any child who is interested in pursuing motorsport as a hobby, and we believe that our junior go kart racing program allows young boys and girls to do just that. Some of the world’s most accomplished racecar drivers started out racing karts as children, and the value and importance of go kart racing should not be underestimated. If your child is interested in racing, then go karts is the natural first step.
