6 Reasons Why You Will Enjoy Toronto Go Karting Indoors!

October 22, 2015

There’s no doubt that go-karting is a fun activity to do in Toronto and like many other activities, you can enjoy it both indoors and outdoors.

Being outdoors is fun and it’s great to feel the rush of the wind in your face, but playing indoors has its advantages, too.

Here are 6 reasons to go-kart indoors.

1. It’ll never be too cold to race.

While the myth of the nine-month Canadian winter is far from the truth, what is true is that winters do get cold here and they last at least a third of the year (and sometimes up to five months depending on how early spring arrives and how late autumn goes).

You would never be able to race go-karts in January on an outdoor track, but on an indoor track, -40C means nothing.

2. Nobody has an excuse when you beat them in a race.

“The sun was in my eyes.”
“The wind was blowing me around.”
“The rain was making the track slippery.”

If you have a friend who always has a convenient excuse when they lose, they won’t be able to bring out any of their excuses when you beat them at an indoor track. Everything is equal and with no weather to worry about, you can say you won fair and square.

At an indoor track, you’ll worry no more for heat or rain to make your Toronto Go Karting a fun and exciting activity.

3. You’ll never have to deal with the sun in your eyes (or the pavement feeling like it’s going to melt).

What you hear often about in Canada is how cold it can get, but what you don’t hear much about is the sometimes unbearably hot weather during summer.

For every jaw-droppingly cold day you will experience in winter, summer has a pavement-melting hot day lined up, too. Outdoors, the sun can get in your eyes, the heat will have you sweating puddles in your helmet and not even ripping around the track will give you relief.

At an indoor track, however, you won’t have to worry about unbeatable heat.

4. No emissions.

Be environment-friendly by driving Grand Prix Kartways’ electric go karts.

All of Grand Prix Kartways’ go karts are electric, meaning they don’t give off any noxious fumes when you drive them. Obviously, being indoors means they wouldn’t be able to have gas-powered karts.

By driving electric, you are doing the environment a big favour. And, you may even like the thought of driving electric so much that you’ll switch to an electric car for your own personal vehicle.

Do you know that one petrol-powered kart can spew as many pollutants as 100 cars?

5. You will never get rained out.

So, we’ve established that winter is cold and summer can get crazy hot, but one other element that outdoor kart tracks have to contend with is rain. And while a little bit of rain is okay, a lot of rain can ruin a good time in a hurry.

This is especially frustrating when you’ve booked a big day well in advance only to wake up to see ominous looking clouds on the horizon. On an outdoor track, those clouds would spell doom for your event. On an indoor track, those clouds mean nothing.

6. No bugs!

We all know there is no sound quite as annoying as the high-pitched whine of a mosquito buzzing around your ear. And getting hit in the face with bugs at high speed is terrible! Outdoor tracks at the height of summer will have some uninvited, but hungry guests to bite and annoy you.

At the indoor track, meanwhile, bugs are not a problem. They can buzz all they want, but they’re not welcome inside and they won’t be in there to annoy you.

So, when you are deciding where the best place for go karting in Toronto is, keep these 6 things in mind. Visit Grand Prix Kartways to experience Toronto’s premiere indoor go karting facility.
