Electric Go-Karts (Jessup)

Just a few miles north of us on Route 1 is the Autobahn Indoor Speedway in Jessup, MD.

This 70,000 square foot facility has two Grand Prix tracks with 20-hp Italian electric go-karts capable of reaching 50 mph in an indoor environment (since there are no gas exhaust fumes). They also have junior go-karts for kids ages 8-13 years old that can go up to 25 mph.

Prices start at $19.99 per race for adults (14 laps) and package deals and specials are available for multiple races, with each race lasting about 10 minutes. They are open 7 days a week year-round (except Christmas).

Group packages and special events are also available. There is a Racing League that holds its races on Tuesdays at 7 pm.

The $1.75M Jessup facility opened in May 2013 and the firm now has another location in Jacksonville, FL.
