League Racing

Are you ready to race amongst the elite? Join the Thunderbolt Indoor Karting League to earn your spot as one of Richmond’s finest racers. Held inside Thunderbolt’s state-of-the-art facilities, our league racing is a great opportunity to share your need for speed with other racers in the area.


Open to anyone 60 inches or taller in height, the Thunderbolt league is made up of five preliminary races, followed by a sixth grand finale race.

This year, we’re giving racers the opportunity to pair up with a favorite racer of their choice for two-person teams. But, if you want to fly around the track solo, that’s still a great option as well! For those who do choose to race in a 2-person team, teams will be able to choose which driver will drive in the qualifying race and the points race. And, if your teammate can’t make it to one of the racing nights, it’s ok, you can still race!

So how much does six nights of fast fun cost? The price for the entire 6-race season will be $175 (teams may split this between two people), or $40 at the door on race nights. If you’re on the fence, don’t hesitate! If you want to compete, don’t hesitate. With only 20 spots available, reserved spots are going to fly faster than our karts! Register today by contacting Thunderbolt Indoor Karting in Richmond, VA.

There are only 20 spots available for the season, and it’s best to pre-purchase to guarantee your spot! See more details below:
