"These are not the slow, rattling 'go carts' you may have been used to as a kid, says David Larson, Managing Partner of Autobahn Indoor Speedway.

Get ready to start your engines! The nearly 40,000-square foot Autobahn Indoor Speedway will open in December at 45448 E. Severn Way in Sterling, bringing the excitement and fun of real racing to the Dulles area. This will be the second Autobahn Indoor Speedway opened in Northern Virginia this year, with the Manassas location having opened in May.

According to Autobahn’s Managing Partner, David Larson, "Indoor kart racing has been popular in Europe for many years and has recently found a strong following on the West Coast of the United States. Autobahn Indoor Speedway is extremely excited to be bringing the first European-style indoor electric kart racing facility to the Dulles area, just off routes 28 and 7, near Dulles Town Center.

At Autobahn Indoor Speedway, everyone can be a race driver and feel the rush of being behind the wheel of Italian-made adult racing karts that approach speeds of 50 mph. The speedway utilizes zero-emission electric karts that Autobahn faster than their noisier, gas-powered counterparts.

“These are not the slow, rattling 'go carts' you may have been used to as a kid”, says Larson. "Our karts are the highest performance available, state of the art and built for safety. One of the first things people notice is the torque of our electric motors - that acceleration is amazing! The handling is also top of the line with hydraulic disc brakes, a rear differential and competition style racing tires."

The company provides racing techniques instruction to newbies and offers competitive leagues to more seasoned drivers. There are even Junior Karts (with a little slower speeds) suitable for the younger crowd if they are at least 48" tall.

Since the speedway is indoors, the weather is not a factor. The indoor facility is heat/cooled and kept at a comfortable temperature year round. Sodas and snacks are available for refreshment between races.

Autobahn Indoor Speedway offers the popular "Arrive & Drive" race format, assigning racers to one of the upcoming races and requiring no reservations. Up to 10 drivers will compete in each race to set the fastest lap times.

Autobahn Indoor Speedway is a fun and exciting place for company outings, social groups and birthday parties. Various group race packages are designed to meet the needs of most events but a custom package can be arranged (including private full facility rentals). Groups have reserved race times, exclusive use of the track during their races and they can compete individually or in teams.
