ON SITE & ON LINE TIMING AND SCORING

Rental Kart driving sessions and rental race events utilize a state of the art Club Speed registration and timing system.  In addition to providing easy registration, this system will help inform you of when your driving session will be on track and, more importantly, will show you your lap times..and your friends lap times too…once you are done driving!

TV monitors on site scroll through recent rental session results and times, show lap records for each day, week, month, and for the year.  Let the competition and trash talk begin!

Also, once registered, you can login to our site to view your lap times and overall race history.

Finally, live timing is available on the “Live Timing” page of our site when rental karts are on track.  So you can follow on your phone or allow others who did not make the trip to follow your results.

 

RENTAL KART RULES & SAFETY

Driving or racing our karts is fun, but our #1 priority is safety.  Your safety in the kart, safety for others on the track, and safety for our staff.  With that in mind, we take our “On Track” Rental Kart Rules & Policies very seriously…and so should you.  Please review them.

We DO NOT operate rental karts in the rain or a wet track.  No exceptions.

We will try to accommodate all renters, but some heights (6’2″+) and some weights (250 lbs +) may not fit safely into our rental karts.

PRIVATE TRACK TIME AVAILABLE

Call today to reserve karts and the entire track–great for large groups for birthday and bachelor parties or unique corporate events.

We hope you're as stoked as we are to only be a few days away from Club Race #1!! After a lengthy winter break, we could not be more excited to see the new season get underway. Just as we're sure you all have been we've been keeping an eye on the weather forecast. Saturday's open practice looks to be a beautiful day with mostly cloudy skies and a high of 68°, while there appears to be some rain coming on Sunday. However, don't let this turn you away in the slightest... rain racing is great for multiple reasons, a few of which are listed below! 
1. Rain is known as the great equalizer. True driving skills are brought out by rainy conditions. 
2. Kart control is emphasized in the rain. A much lower-grip surface highlights a drivers ability to keep the kart under control in less-than-optimal conditions. 
3. It cultivates driving skill. Driving with such low grip can only pay dividends to a driver's ability. Those who learn to be fast in the rain can be fast in any conditions. 
4. IT'S FUN! What's not to enjoy about racing on a slick and slippery surface? While improving your driving ability, emphasizing kart control skills, and acting as a great equalizer, wet conditions makes driving all the more enjoyable. 
Don't let the potential wet weather dampen your spirits for Club Race #1! We'll be watching the forecast closely over the next few days for any changes, but we WILL be racing rain or shine. Rain tires are available at our on-site shop. Make sure you don't miss out!
