The Autobahn Indoor Speedway opened with great fanfare this morning, at their ribbon cutting at the Manassas Mall.
Several elected officials including Brentsville Supervisor Jeanine Lawson and Manassas Mayor Hal Parrish helped to cut the ribbon, and spoke about how exciting it was for the community to have the speedway, and how pleased they were that the Manassas Mall was being revamped.
The speedway is 40,000 square feet, and is the largest completely indoor karting facility in Virginia, according to their website.
“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 Manassas area,” stated Autobahn’s Managing Partner David Larson, in a release.
According to a release, the karts used at the speedway are zero-emission electric karts, which means that they’re faster and quieter than the gas-powered models. They have adult cars that can be used by drivers of all experience levels, and junior karts that operate at lower speeds, for the younger racers, stated a release.
The plan is for Autobahn Indoor Speedway to have nine facilities on the East Coast by the end of the year, according to a release.
The speedway is located at 8340 Sudley Road at the former Manassas Mall Target location, next to the At Home décor store.
