Only 2-person electric racing kart in the world gifted to Overdrive Raceway, offering new activity for those with disabilities
Overdrive Raceway in Colorado Springs was given the only electric duo racing kart in the world, allowing people with certain physical disabilities the opportunity to race as a team!
The Rocky Mountain ADA Center announced the gift in a press release on Wednesday. The new "Storm Duo Kart" has two seats, something that is incredibly rare in the go kart marketplace.
“We’ve had a wonderful relationship with Overdrive Raceway for many years as the company’s owner is an amputee and has a wonderful heart and insight for providing access to people with disabilities. Each day Overdrive provides opportunities for people with disabilities to get off the sidelines and into the game, and now in this instance participating in fast-paced kart racing in the only duo cart available to the public in the United States and the world,” said Emily Shuman, Deputy Director of the RMADAC. “July 26th marks the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, a landmark civil rights law, and due to public gathering limitations, we decided the best way for our team to celebrate this major anniversary would be to provide a gift to those seeking fun and access to kart racing in Colorado Springs, The Rocky Mountain region and the nation.”
The kart is available for riding and has a top speed of 40 MPH.
