Gasoline Karts: The Authentic Racing Experience!

Leave a Comment

If you are reading this, you probably already know that G-Force Karts is known throughout Richmond for our incredibly fast, gas-powered outdoor karting experience!

What you might not know is why we run gasoline powered go karts, in comparison with the option of running electric go karts.  Just like with your automobile, there can be a substantial difference in how a gas kart vs. electric kart rides, feels, performs and lasts.  With top Kart speeds of up 55 miles per hour, all of our huge fleet of gasoline powered karts will truly test your ability to skillfully navigate a well oiled machine around an outdoor race track laced with hairpin turns! That being said, both gas and electric karts are, without question, tons of fun. However, for us, there are some key sticking points as to why, just like the big boys in Nascar or IndyCar, we choose to run gas powered karts!

2 Seat Go Karts at G-Force Karts!

Ever wanted to share the G-Force experience with a friend or loved one, or show a rookie the tracks? With G-Force’s new two seat go kart, you can!

G-Force Stands Atop the Karting World 

We are super excited, honored and proud of our standing as one of the only indoor tracks in the United States to offer a two seat kart!  There are hundreds of indoor karting tracks nationwide, but Sodi saw fit to test these products right here in Richmond, at G-Force Karts. If that doesn’t tell you what G-Force is all about, nothing will!

The “Sodi 2-Drive” Two Seat Go Kart

The two seater kart, known as the “Sodi 2-Drive” is ideal for younger, newer drivers and as a great training tool for racers too young to drive on their own (hey dad… get that young’en ready now, man!).

Our Sodi 2- Drives allows younger drivers to experience the thrill, speed and feel of indoor karting, while offering the driver the ability to restrict the passengers ability to have any real impact on turning, speed or performance. These karts are state of the art, featuring vented disc brakes, huge, beefy axles, and 4-point restraint system.   If you so choose, we can enable steering from either the driver or the passenger side, but from what we’ve seen so far…we will likely not activate the passenger side all that often.

These Karts Fly!

Even though the Sodi 2-Drive is purpose built as a training kart, it’s still got a ton of power under the hood! They easily maintain the same speed and control as our other karts.

G-Force has always been on the cutting edge of innovation in the world of karting. We’ve always experimented with new equipment, racetrack configurations, karts, and anything that might improve your overall experience and racing performance.

Stop in, take a test drive in these unique  double seat karts, and help G-Force usher in the next generation of high performance go kart racing! Please contact G-Force Karts online with any questions on our two seater karts, or call us at (804) 228-0188. As always… “Experience the Thrill of Racing” at Richmond’s best indoor karting track, G-Force Karts!

It’s Lonely at the Top

Leave a Comment

At G-Force Karts, we’re proud of our standing at the top of the karting industry in Richmond! For over 13 years, we’ve maintained a standard of excellence in product, experience and customer care that few nationwide can claim.

Our high speed, gas powered karts deliver an exciting and intense racing experience, but we are always looking to improve upon your overall experience.  As new technologies emerge and new indoor experiences arise, we stay hungry to maintain our position in your mind as the go-to source for outdoorexcitement in Virginia.

It’s lonely at the top, but hey, we like it that way!

With Success Comes Competition 

With success comes competition! “Me too” karting places are popping up all over the country to compete for a piece of the large indoor karting market, and Richmond is no exception. Since indoor karting hit the United States about 18 years ago, the industry continues to see an influx of new karting tracks. In fact, almost 100 indoor karting facilities operate in the United States in 2014, and that number continues to grow.

Some of these new tracks are run very well by folks who know karting and racing inside and out, while other tracks struggle. It all depends on ownership. At G-Force, our ownership team has 13+ years of tweaking, experimenting, and improving our facility. That’s what keeps us at the top.

Just like anything worth doing for a living, it takes several years to truly understand your product or service. Indoor karting is no exception. Experts say it takes 10,000 hours to truly master something. We can say with confidence: we have truly mastered the art of indoor karting!

Competition Breeds Innovation 

With new competition comes creativity, innovation, and a need to constantly adapt and improve our product and experience. At G-Force, we embrace the need to constantly improve, hence over the past few years we’ve added new karts, and moved across the street!

Sleep tight in knowing we’ve got some big improvements coming that will change everything you thought you knew about G-Force Karts.  Enough said for now…

Customer Value 

Even with all the improvements and upgrades, we never lost sight of what is truly important to our long standing success and reputation: Your Customer Experience! We pride ourselves on maintaining an extremely high standard in racing excellence, which shows!

Adjustable Pedals, Seats and Weights

In keeping with theme of the overall customer experience, we do offer a few racing options at G-Force that few indoor tracks nationwide can claim.

First, we provide an 8 minute race experience for every race. This is HUGE for us! Many karting tracks will charge the same amount as G-Force per race, but only give you a 5-6 minutes of actual racing time. We could certainly do the same thing, and we’d probably make more money, but you, as our customer, ultimately would feel slighted. It’s in our best interest to run 8 minute races. Trust us: if you haven’t raced here before, 8 minutes on a high speed indoor kart track like G-Force seems like 30 minutes!

Next, we really feel strongly that adjustable settings on our karts are an absolute must in order to customize the racing experience for each racer. When you sit in one of our gas powered high speed karts, you can adjust both your pedals and your seat, so that you can ride as comfortably as possible at high speeds.

We also counter-balance (ie weight balance) our karts for the more competitive racers. If a trophy or even just bragging rights are on the line, you want an equal playing field. We can add or remove weight from your kart so that you and your buddy/challenger are on equal footing. For our popular events like ironman challenges and enduro races, weight balancing is crucial.

How Can We Improve Your Experience? 

While we know we could rest on our laurels as an undisputed karting leader, we won’t do that.  That is not what got us here and that is not how we will continue to dominate the indoor karting market. We want to keep our place at the top.

That being said, we welcome your feedback! How can we improve your experience? If you’ve raced at other tracks, how do they compare to G-Force? Did they offer any special value, experience or thrill that we could consider also?

You, our core customer, are our top priority. Let us know how we can continue to deliver an excellent racing experience!

Join us at the Top

Call us anytime and let us know how we’re doing! Call (804) 228-0188 or contact G-Force Karts online. Regardless of whether you’re new to karting or a seasoned vet, know that you can truly “Experience the Thrill of Racing” at G-Force Karts!
