Race With Us

Karting is one of the most exciting and accessible forms of racing available. There is no substitute for the speed, thrills, and close racing action that can be found in karting. One of the primary attractions of karting is that it doesn’t require a transporter, trailer, race shop, and crew full of mechanics to compete. Also, karting doesn’t require thousands of dollars, making it an excellent entry point to racing for many people. Pitt Race provides public kart rentals open to anyone!

**Attention: You must be a licensed driver to operate a motorized vehicle in the Pitt Race Paddock Area

Karting Details


These are not your ordinary go-karts.  Pitt Race offers open rentals to the public on our .82 mile Wilson Circuit. A GX 270cc Honda 4-stroke Engine that makes 9.5 horsepower powers the karts. Our rental karts can reach speeds up to 45 mph. For safety reasons the driver must be able to comfortably reach both pedals. To drive an adult rental kart one must be at least 5 feet. We also have junior karts available with a height requirement of 4 feet. Our junior karts are smaller and have a top speed of 35 mph. 
Each session will last for 10 minutes.  Ten minutes in one of our karts is a lot! It’s a workout! Drivers must have closed toed shoes and pants or shorts (No skirts or dresses) to enter the track. All other equipment that you need will be provided. This includes the required helmet, neck brace, and jacket. Gloves are optional.

We still run the rental karts in the rain. The only time we do not run the karts if it is a torrential downpour or if we see lightning.
