What is indoor karting?
Indoor go-karting is the best way to drive go karts in Metro Detroit. Michigan Go Karts are better served indoors to avoid the weather. Originating in Europe, indoor karting has been increasing in popularity in the States. Since weather is never an issue, individuals or groups can race all year round. With karts capable of 35+ mph and a live timing and scoring system, indoor karting offers real racing excitement at an affordable cost.
How old/tall do you have to be?
Our Pro Go Karts are adult style/size karts which require a driver to be 56 inches or taller. We ask that all Pro Kart drivers be 16 years of age with a valid driver’s license. Junior Karts are primarily for kids but some adults enjoy a slower pace too. Drivers must be 56″ tall to operate, passengers must be at least 4 years old with an adult driver.
How fast are Kart 2 Kart’s go-karts?
