KARTING SAFETY RULES
On our tracks, you will be experiencing real racing (not an amusement ride). DO NOT RACE if you are pregnant or have medical issues, including neck, back, or heart problems. To avoid accidents, you must pay attention to the flags and the Safety Rules.
The speed on an offender’s Kart will be reduced one or more laps. RACERS MUST COMPLY WITH INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE RACE MARSHAL AND PIT CREW. Repeat offenders may be ejected with no refund.
Minimum Height Requirements for racers is 48″ for Junior Karts and 56″ for Pro Karts.
Racers must watch the safety video before racing. If you have any questions about the safety video, please ask the staff.
Anyone under the influence of alcohol or drugs will not be allowed to race, no exceptions.
Helmets must be worn while in Kart. We will provide you with a helmet, head sock and optional neck protector.
For your safety, long hair must be pulled back into a ponytail and open toe shoes are not allowed while racing.
Crashing or Bumping into Karts or barriers, or ‘blocking’ of other Karts is not allowed (even while attempting to pass).
Do not press the gas pedal and brake pedal at the same time. This will cause your Kart to shut down.
Stay in your Kart
After your race, stay in your Kart until you are told that you may get up.
“Bumping” and “Rough Driving” are terms applied to bumping or crashing into another racer or the barriers. The basic rule is “no contact.” Reasonable, competitive racing occasionally sees contact between competitors. However, this type of contact, especially if it happens multiple times, can still be considered a violation of the rules. Depending upon the incident, the staff will take the necessary action, which may include a warning, reducing the speed of your kart for one lap or more, or in cases of gross misconduct, ejection from the facility.
Used to signal the start of a race.
BLUE & ORANGE FLAG
This is one of the flags that novice and slower racers may see more often. It means you must allow the person behind you to pass you safely. If you are shown this flag, yield the racing line to the faster go-karts approaching. It’s essential to keep an eye out and be cautious so as not to cause an accident.
Signals a warning or caution. In a race situation, it usually indicates that there has been an accident or spin-out. Drivers must slow down and approach cautiously to pass the go-karts that may be stopped on the track. No overtaking is permitted on a Caution Flag.
Signals the end of the race, practice, or qualifying session.
If you see this flag, it is mainly because you are driving recklessly. You must immediately discontinue unsafe driving. Please see the above for more information.
What are the age & height requirements?
For our Junior Karts, the minimum age and height requirement is at least 8 years old and at least 48 inches tall. Racers must be able to safely reach the pedals in order to race. For our Pro Karts, the minimum age and height requirement is at least 13 years old and at least 56 inches tall. Racers under 18 must have THIS WAIVER completed for their child to be able to race (or must be present to sign the waiver in person) and must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times
