    Thunderbolt Indoor Karting is very unique in the Richmond region, as it is the only location that offers climate-controlled, electric go kart racing. Electric karts have more power and torque than gas-powered karts, allowing for faster take-offs and better acceleration. That means drivers reach faster speeds much more quickly, making for a more thrilling, adrenaline-boosting ride. No gas also means customers won't have to deal with exhaust fumes and emissions.

    "I am excited to be able to provide my home community with a state of the art entertainment center that is fun, safe and healthy. People will be amazed when they see what we have to offer. Builders of team spirit, devotees of speed and friendly competition: you have found your destination!" S. I. Tarant, MD, President of Thunderbolt Indoor Karting and proud resident of Chesterfield County
