Lehigh Valley Grand Prix speeds up with Super Karts

A Lehigh Valley business has invested in speed – literally.

Lehigh Valley Grand Prix in Allentown, an indoor kart racing venue, has upgraded its fleet of gas-powered karts to Super Karts.

At a cost of about $1,500 for each $10,000 vehicle, Grand Prix replaced the existing 6 ½-horsepower engines with 9-horsepower engines.

The new engines will increase speed to 50 mph, making them the fastest indoor concession carts in the country.

Lehigh Valley Grand Prix now is one of just two facilities on the East Coast where people can drive Super Karts without having to pass pre-qualification standards.
