4 Things Kids Learn from Indoor Go Karting

Did you know that an estimated 39% of teens fail their first driving test?

Unfortunately that also translates into the fact that fewer kids can drive well, meaning they aren’t as safe on roads and in vehicles.

But you can help to even the odds! Studies show that indoor go karting while young can help improve kids’ driving skills long before they’re even ready to drive a real car.

Ready?

Indoor Go Karting Improves Motor Skills

Indoor Go Karting Improves Motor Skills

If your teen is ready to start driving, you won’t even be able to help them practice until they get a learners permit. While you should definitely take them out once they get their permit, you can think about taking your kids to Go Kart in Toronto races to prep their driving skills!

Improve Motor Skills

Studies actually show that go karts can improve motor skills. In fact, some educational institutions see go karting as an educational sport that enhances motor skills. With this in mind, a Go Kart Toronto race might seem like a great idea. At GPK, your child will learn to use the steering wheel, gas pedal, and most importantly, learn how they function before ever getting behind the wheel of a real car. Your child will learn the basics of driving in a safe, indoor fun environment!

Learn the Rules of the Road

Observance of our road rules protects life: yours and of others

While you won’t learn about passing signs or the complexities of whether or not you can turn left at GPK, we will teach your kids basic

road rules including driving politely, learning to pass other drivers and respecting other drivers, obeying the rules of the road and specially about using cell phones while driving.

There had been numerous documentations and campaigns from various Canadian organizations against texting while driving specially with the younger ones. Some are too graphic, it will turn your stomach upside down. The road in real life is a scary place. But if these drivers are equipped early on safety and responsibility, road accidents and unnecessary loss of life can be avoided.

Self-confidence allows clarity and better judgment when driving

Increase Confidence behind the Wheel

You probably remember the first time you drove, you probably weren’t very confident. You can give your kids the edge they need to succeed by letting them get comfortable behind the wheel! Your kids can learn and realize how much fun driving can be if they respect it and drive safely.

Bond with Your Kids

These Toronto Indoor Go Karting Rules

Indoor Go Karting Rules | Grand Prix Kartways in Toronto (647) 496-5838

Fun is not optional here at GPK. But so are these rules.

They keep you and me safe.

The first thing you should know is that all race tracks, whether they are professional or for go karting in Toronto, have a zero tolerance policy about driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. At GPK, if we suspect you are under the influence, we will ask you to take a breathalyzer test. We want you to be able to think and drive, not drink and drive.

As for the track, here are the rules that we have adopted from professional racing, all aimed at keeping you and your friends safe while you are enjoying  indoor go karting in Toronto at Grnad Prix Kartways.

1) Helmets, Clothes & Hair

Helmets are mandatory. Professional race associations have set standards for the type of helmet that is the safest that involves specific materials used and measurements. The helmets at GPK are top-of-the-line and meet all these specifications. Keep your helmet on at all times until you are back on the checkered floor. And make sure that if you have long hair, it is tied up above your shoulders, and any loose clothing is secured. Your hands and feet need to stay in the kart at all times as well.

Check out our explainer video on safety. ()

Watch our explainer video on Safety!

2) Track Marshalls

The first thing you will notice when you race at GPK are the Track Marshals. They have the authority to keep things running smoothly on our indoor tracks. The marshals will brief you on track rules during the Pre-Race Orientation. When on the track, never get out of your go kart unless a track marshal tells you to.

3) No Horseplay

Now, we know you want to win. But… you can’t do that by reckless driving, horseplay or breaking rules. So don’t bump, block or cut off other drivers. Take some time to watch our videos about how to corner and pass safely and smoothly when you’re go karting on Toronto’s best indoor go karting track. And if you do see a black flag, drive your kart to the pit slowly. If you break the rules, marshals enforce a 5-second slow penalty. If you continue to break rules, you will be asked to leave, with no refund given.

The rules are there for your safety. And a safe race is a fun race for everyone. Come see just how fun following the rules can be at GPK today!

Where In the World Is Toronto Go Karting Popular

Go Karting in Toronto is enjoyed millions of people even around the world.

It is impossible to pin down a race like Toronto Go Karting as being the national sport of a particular country, and like a lot of competitive activities, it has spread like wildfire during its evolution, and has crossed land and sea to take root wherever its wheels take it.

Where Did Toronto Go Karting Originate?

Where in the World is Toronto Go Karting Popular? |

Rather watch the video of this? Click the photo now!

It is generally agreed that the Founding Father of Go Karting is Art Ingles, who manufactured the first kart in California, in 1956. It is the US that gets credit for the invention of the sport.

The trend spread rather quickly, and before long go-cart (then spelt with a “c”) tracks began to appear all around America. It was as if there was something innately appealing about the fast and exciting, nitty-gritty world of the Go kart.

America, the birthplace of the kart, was, therefore, the first place in the world where the sport became popular, but the trend was not to stop there. The manufacture of the karts improved, and by the late 1950s America had a dedicated kart manufacturing company, known humbly as Go Kart Manufacturing Co, as well as a specifically manufactured Go Kart engine; the McCulloch MC-10.

Go Karting Travels to Europe

The engine company took the concept of the Go Kart to Europe, where it gained an instant following and rapidly grew to become a very popular sport. Back then, tracks were often set up in the streets for race events, a format that is still very apparent in competitive outdoor karting, such as in the Junior Monaco World Cup, for example.

In the modern world, Go Karting has, naturally, spread to other continents, and can be found in most developed countries like Canada.

We accept pre-reserved event packages for groups. Call us!

Indoor Toronto Go Karting- The Second Wave Of Popularity

The second wave, and the one that carried the popularity of Toronto Go Karting the next level was the rise of indoor Go Karting, such as GPK’s Toronto Go Karting facility. They can now be found in most US cities, and in many cities across Europe, and are dotted around many other countries.

The indoor venues have changed the face of Go Karting and have escalated the popularity of the activity. No longer is Go Karting only enjoyed at the level of international and national competition. It is now enjoyed on a casual basis by children of all ages, teenagers, adults, males and females of all nationalities, and just about anyone who enjoys a bit of a rush of blood!

Watch our video on the History of Karting.

 

Indoor tracks provide the right measure of entertainment and competition and have increased the accessibility of Toronto Go Karting.

Indoor Karting is especially popular in the UK, where it exploded in the early 1990’s and reached outwards to Belgium, France, and Germany among other countries. It has taken off to some extent in the US, and here in Canada too.

For a clean, safe and exhilarating Toronto Go Karting experience, visit Grand Prix Kartways, where you can speed around one of the best Go Karting tracks in a race that will blow your senses.

How Helmets Protect You When Go Karting in Toronto

Check out our explainer video on safety. (<https://youtu.be/5kRXnW3z_nM>)

Watch our explainer video on Safety!

Go karting in Toronto is fast, it is furious, and it is full of excitement at every bend.

With every twist and turn comes the thrill of the race, as you try hard to gauge the apex of a corner while maintaining a decent speed.

Safety is clearly important, and at GPK it is not something that we neglect. We make sure we provide the latest safety equipment, including top of the range helmets.

Helmets are worn to protect you when you crash. Obviously they are compulsory when Go Karting in Toronto, but you should also be sure to wear one whenever you ride a bike, motorcycle, or in any case that a collision or crash is possible. A helmet could well save your life.

How Do Helmets Work?

Helmets work in a very simple way. They contain a layer of high-quality crushable foam, which absorbs most of the impact of a crash. This saves your skull, and quite possibly your brain from being damaged in a collision. The foam also serves to reduce the rotational force that could cause neck damage or spine damage.

Go Karting in Toronto

We never allow anyone on a Go Kart without a helmet on.

 

The outer layer of the helmet is made from a hard plastic that is designed to skid easily across the surface, so that the impact is reduced to a less harmful skim, rather than a deep impact, or a painful jerk of the head in a particular direction.

 

As you may be beginning to realize, the simple protection that a helmet can provide is invaluable to your safety.

Remember… it is better not to crash in the first place so be sure to drive responsibly.

Helmets with visors, such as the ones that we provide at our Go Karting facility in Toronto, provide protection against debris, or any other scraps that could fly in your face when you are driving at high speeds. Your eyes and face are safe, as long as the visor is always kept down.

Is There Anything Else I Should Know About Helmet Safety?

It is important that your helmet fits well to your head, so that it is able to properly absorb shock, and it is also important that the strap is always well secured, so that the helmet never comes loose when you are flying around a hairpin.

Toronto Go Karting Helmets | Grand Prix Kartways | https://youtu.be/5kRXnW3z_nM

When Go Karting in Toronto, use helmets with visors like what we provide.

 

You should always ensure that the visor of the helmet is kept clean, to improve visibility. This will reduce the chance of a crash in the first place.

 

Remember, a helmet provides an extra layer of protection for the head and neck, but this is not an insurance that warrants a deliberate crash, or any sort of driving behavior that could promote one. Go Karting in Toronto is a non-contact sport, and deliberately dangerous driving is not encouraged here. We want everyone to have fun, in a safe environment.

 

Our Go Kart track in Toronto is designed with both thrills and safety in mind. Our Go-Karts are the very cutting edge in both handling and safety features, and we have a number of safety rules, as well as the highly trained staff that are always around to help. We take care of all of the helmet safety that you see mentioned here.

Toronto Go-Karting Makes for a Great School Excursion

If we asked you to think of a typical school excursion,

you might conjure up images of museums, art galleries, and maybe the zoo if you are lucky. Traditionally speaking, you probably don’t immediately associate go-karting with school excursions. We don’t have anything against museums, but we think that go-karting might be an exhilarating and often educational option. Wait, hear us out…

 

The Ultimate Reward Trip

There are two types of school excursion, as far as our ancient brains can remember. The first is a reward trip, and, in this case, the excursion can be purely for fun, and is usually more outrageous than a field trip. You may have finished the year, completed some exams, or shown exceptional performance at school, but in some way you are being rewarded.

Toronto Go Kart | (647) 496 - 5838 | Grand Prix Kartways

Planning the best School Excursion ever? Look no further! Visit us GokartToronto.com today!

Go-karting is an exceptionally exciting way to be treated, and both students and teachers can enjoy the thrill of the race. Nothing quite beats the rush of zooming around the track with your fellow classmates, and sharing a day of food, laughter, and adrenaline. You deserve it after all of that academia!

 

Whether you are a teacher looking to treat your class, or a student looking to propose ideas for the end of year trip, why not suggest Grand Prix Kartways in Toronto?!

 

 

Does Go-Karting Make For An Educational School Trip?

It’s not difficult to agree that go-karting makes for an extremely fun end of year trip but is it possible that go-karting can also make for an educational outing? We believe so…

 

The first educational benefit is that go-karting can help people, young people, to learn to drive. Although go-karts are very different to cars, karting helps students to improve reaction times, grasp the basics of driving, and improve their confidence. Anyone who is approaching the age where they might want to learn to drive can benefit from a go-karting school excursion.

 

Go-Karting & STEM

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and maths, and the development of these areas is considered extremely valuable for individuals in today’s society. Go-karting gives students many opportunities to enhance their skills in these areas, and a go-karting school excursion would be ideal for these students in particular.

 

Go-karts are an accessible way for students of STEM to explore and understand the mechanics of vehicles, the physics of driving and the forces involved with go-karting, and aspects of designing and building. They can learn about the technology involved and the recent advancements such as the environmentally friendly electrical powered go-karts.

 

You could consider combining the trip with the study of go-kart mechanics, or with the mathematics of acceleration, or another related module, and perhaps hold the excursion as a treat at the end. There are already educational programs that use go-karts to enhance learning.

 

Combination Packages & Discounts

If you want to organize a school excursion or another large event, speak to Grand Prix Kartways Toronto. We can create combination packages that include food and entertainment, and various go-karting formats. Speak to us about tailoring your group package, and adding an educational spin. Discounts are available for schools.

 

Grand Prix Kartways can provide the ultimate adrenaline packed, fun filled school trip that students will remember forever to come! Visit us today!

Outdoor Vs Indoor Go Karting in Toronto: Which Is Better?

When Go-Karting in Toronto, which is better, outdoor or indoor?

Many new racers will be asking this question in their hunt for the greatest go-karting rush they can find. To truly know the answer for yourself, you will want to experience both at some point. It all comes down to personal preference really, but indoor karting does offer some notable advantages, especially for the recreational racer.

Toronto Go Kart | (647) 496 - 5838 | Grand Prix Kartways

The Weather

It may sound trivial at first, but the first major difference between the outdoor and indoor track is the weather exposure. Bad weather can lead at best to harsh driving conditions, and at worst can cause your big race to be cancelled.

Want More Toronto Go-Karting videos? Check it out here.

 

There is no way to guarantee the weather conditions at an outdoor track, so while some people find the wind in their face to be truly exhilarating, and some people might enjoy the challenge of handling the karts in these conditions, nobody really likes to be rained off!

 

At indoor go-karting tracks such as that in Grand Prix Kartways Toronto, the weather never affects the racing conditions, and we never have to call off the day. This means you can enjoy a dry track that is safer to drive on, and gives you a full speed thrill every time, without fail.

 

The Go-Karts

 

Where recreational go-karting is concerned, indoor karts tend to be faster. Outdoor karts are usually gas powered, and because of variable road conditions they have to run at slower speeds. At our race track in Toronto, our electric powered go-karts run at speeds of up to 85 KPH, faster than most outdoor karts allow. They also emit no harmful fumes, making them more ecologically friendly, and more friendly for everybody’s lungs too.

 

The design of these indoor go-karts is also different. One outer shell covers all of the mechanics. On outdoor karts, more of the motor is exposed, and the gas is flammable. The weight of an indoor kart is more evenly distributed, and they are less likely to flip. All in all, safety is greater during indoor karting.

Check out more videos on Electric Go-Karts here.

 

What Else?

 

Indoor go-karting centers are often much more accommodating than outdoor tracks, which offer limited facilities outside of the actual circuit itself. At our race track in Toronto, we also offer facilities such as a restaurant and bar, amusement arcade and entertainment centre, ample comfortable seating, and plenty of activities for children. This makes indoor karting in Toronto a more well-rounded, family-friendly experience.

 

Availability is also something to consider. You might want to choose your go-kart track based on what is close to your location. If you are looking for the leading, if not the best facility for go-karting in Toronto, visit Grand Prix Kartways today!

What are the Different Types of Toronto Go Kart

A Toronto Go Kart is a kind of blanket term for a small four wheeled vehicle.

So as you can imagine, there are quite a lot of different types out there, of all sorts of shapes and sizes. The type of go-kart used usually depends on the situation. A soap box derby kart is an unusual go-kart used for downhill racing, and powered only by gravity. They

Toronto Go Kart | Grand Prix Kartways | 647-496-5838 | 75 Carl Hall Rd. Downsview Park Toronto ON M3K 2B9 Canada

Competitive Go Kart | Toronto Go Kart

wouldn’t be much good on an indoor Go Karting track in Toronto.
Toronto Go Karting takes place at many levels; from the highly recreational, to the highly competitive. There are indoor tracks, outdoor tracks, and high speed road tracks, and there are Go-Karts designed for each situation.

Competitive Go-Karts

There are three main types of Toronto Go Kart used for highly competitive track racing. Sprint Karts are the most commonly used. They are fast and versatile, and can be raced on many different types of track.

 

The Oval Karts are designed specifically for turning tight corners in only one direction, and are therefore perfectly designed for oval tracks. The Enduro Karts are built with maximum speed in mind, and can reach heart racing speeds of up to 90 miles per hour. Racers lie flat to reduce air resistance. If you watch a major Karting event involving professionals, then you will see one of these three types of Kart.

Check out our video: Go Karting the NASCAR Way

Indoor Go-Karting

There are many types of indoor go kart in Toronto, and again the type a track will have all depends on the purpose. 2-stroke engines, or low-powered electric engines, are used for amusement style karts, while more competitive and exciting tracks use 4-stroke gas engines, or high powered electric ones that deliver around 15 HP. Toronto’s indoor karts vary in size and class, and can feature any one of a number of engines made by major manufacturers such as Briggs & Stratton, Honda, and others.

Petrol ones leave a smoggy pollution and make an unbearable amount of noise, all of which would be contained in the warehouse for your children to breathe in.

For the indoor experience electric go-karts are much more preferable. Petrol ones leave a smoggy pollution and make an unbearable amount of noise, all of which would be contained in the warehouse for your children to breathe in. This used to be a problem, because earlier electric go-karts could not produce as much power and speed as their petrol rivals.

Fortunately, this is no longer an issue. The new electric go-karts are just as effective, if not more effective, and in some cases can deliver even more power and speed; all without creating pollution.

What Go Karts Do We Use At Grand Prix Kartways?

At Grand Prix Kartways we are have to find the perfect balance between competition and recreation. We therefore needed a Go Kart that is fast and exhilarating, but which also handles great and has plenty of safety. We choose the Italian-made EK-5N-DR electric Go-Karts, along with the EK-Mini for the kids. The adult karts have top speeds of 85Kph, deliver 20 HP, and accelerate really fast! They also make for a much cleaner and more enjoyable environment than a gas-powered engine.
We believe this to be the best choice for indoor Go Karting in Toronto. If you want to find out for yourself what it is like to race the finest karts in Toronto, then come along to Grand Prix Kartways.

Does Go Karting in Toronto While Young, Affect Driving Skills?

Go-Karting in Toronto is a fun activity enjoyed by people of all ages as a recreational activity.

But it simultaneously works to accelerate your children’s driving skills, and their overall confidence on the road. At a young age, nothing else will put them closer to the experience of real life driving than a bit of time racing around a Go Karting track in Toronto.
We know what you are thinking. Go Karting is very different to driving a real car on a busy road. Both the kart itself, and the driving conditions are very different. The rules of a track are different to the rules of the road, and the handling of a car is totally different. While this is true, there are still many ways in which Go Karting in Toronto can really help a young person to develop their skills.

Go Karting in Toronto |(647) 496 5838 | Grand Prix Kartways Downsview Park Toronto ON M3K 2B9

Go Karting in Toronto | Does Go-Karting younger in life affect driving skills later in life?

Grasp The Basics Of Driving

Many of the most basic and fundamental elements of driving are important in Go Karting in Toronto. Your child will learn how to steer using a wheel, and brake and accelerate using pedals, which they will have to switch between at the correct time. They will tackle corners, and deal with the traffic; the other drivers on the road. Aside from the handling of the kart, they are half way to driving an automatic car already!

 

Improve Reaction Times

In life we learn to crawl, and then to walk, and then to drive. With each stage comes a definite change in speed. When a young person experiences Go Karting in Toronto for the first time, they take the leap from walking to driving, and have to adapt their perceptions quickly. Reaction times are likely to improve, given that they will not be traveling at faster speeds, flying around corners, and reacting to other drivers.

Watch our video on 8 Things to Know Before You Get in the Driver’s Seat

The Mental Mindset

The mental mindset required when go-karting in Toronto is very similar to the one needed to drive a car. Both require prolonged focus and intense concentration to drive safely. Even in the face of distractions, both internal and external, the driver must keep their eyes and minds firmly on the road. They must notice hazards and potential hazards, and be aware of mistakes of others on the road. All of this requires practice, and there is no safer or more fun environment for young people to do this than GP Kartways.

 

Confidence Abound!

Perhaps the most astonishing improvement that we see in young people here at GP Kartways, is the amount of confidence that they accumulate. The more they drive, the more they seem to thrive. This confidence is transferable not only to driving a car, but also to every other aspect of life.

Check out our video: Improve your Skills in Go Karting in Toronto with Race Diagnostics

By the time youngsters come to take driving lessons, they will be so well accustomed to being behind a wheel that they will be ready to make the change. They will already have the self belief necessary to try, and the positive attitude necessary to succeed. All that will be required for them is that they adapt to the vehicle.

 

Race At GP Kartways

Grand Prix Kartways is the leading indoor go-karting facility in Toronto. We have all sorts of different events on every week, and we are proud to have created a family friendly experience that people of all ages can enjoy. Bring your young drivers down for a bit of practice! Contact us today!

A Look at Some of Toronto’s Best Go-Karting Video Games

There have been hundreds of Toronto Go-Karting video games released over the past couple of decades, but the truth is you just didn’t notice many of them.

Go Karting in Toronto |(647) 496 5838 | Grand Prix Kartways Downsview Park Toronto ON M3K 2B9

Toronto Go-Karting

Many of them faded with time, and under the weight of their own shoddiness. A small selection of elite kart games and series have survived and will forever hold a place in our hearts.

We have to admit, the best Go-Karting video games are often crazy, unrealistic, and cartoony. Mario Kart obviously springs to mind. We don’t think this reflects badly on Go-Karting, but rather it reflects its essence of most people: an accessible and lighthearted way to get competitive and have some fun.

We could do a Top 10 of the Best Go-Karting games, but then we might end up with 7 versions of Mario Kart and a few other notable titles. Instead, we will take a look at a wide range of options, to give the other games a fair chance.

 The Best Go-Karting Games

Super Mario Kart

Would it really be acceptable to start anywhere else? Mario Kart rules the roost even now, and the original game, released on the SNES back in 1992, was the first of its genre. A spin-off to Super Mario Bros, this karting game was well ahead of its time, featuring twisty tracks, characters with AI and personalities, and of course, the firing of shells across the racetrack; not a behavior that we encourage here at our Go-Karting Toronto, but very entertaining on-screen!

The series has continued its success to this day, and critically acclaimed titles include Mario Kart 64, Wii, Double Dash, and many more.

This is possibly the perfect Go-Karting franchise, and while it is a tough game to beat, it inspired many more titles to come.

Diddy Kong Racing

Perhaps considered the main rival of Mario Kart, at least at the time when it was released, this classic karting game is very obviously modeled on its predecessor, but managed to add a lot to the evolution of karting in video games.

It included a much needed one player adventure mode, and a multiplayer adventure (type the code: Jointventure to access) which added a lot of depth to the game. It also introduced the plane and hovercraft vehicles, and apart from all of that still had all of the action-packed fun of Mario.

Released on the N64, there has never been a sequel.

Crash Team Racing

Seeing the success of the Nintendo karting games, it wasn’t long until Sony responded with a game for their platform, based on their platform king at the time, Crash Bandicoot. This made many PS owners very happy, and the game was by no means a letdown, providing a fully 3-D interface that looked stunning, great controls, an adventure mode, and multiplayer madness. It truly was a rival for Mario and Diddy.

Sonic & SEGA All-Star Racing

A 2010 release, you will be happy to know that this Go-Karting title is not restricted to a certain console. It is available on the PS3, Wii, X-box 360, DS, PC, and mobile.

The graphics are stunning, and there are plenty of playable characters to choose from, with mascot Sonic leading the pack. All have their own abilities, and the use of items takes a more tactical, and less random feel than in the other kart games. This one plays a little more like a classic racing game in some ways: the controls are comparatively difficult, and the game does not have Nintendo’s philosophy of evening the score with powerful items at the last minute.

That covers the best karting games that take the popular Mario Kart format, but what else is there to be explored? Truth be told, there aren’t many super-realistic kart games worth playing, so we have another suggestion to keep you entertained.

ModNation Racers

ModNation is a completely different type of karting game, released for the PS3 that allows for the full customization of… everything. You can make karts, players, and tracks, and share them with a large and creative online community. This gives you limitless options for racing, and if you love the design aspect of it all, then you will not be disappointed. Did we mention it plays pretty well too?

For another fun customization Go-Karting game, check out the famous LittleBigPlanetKarting, which boasts a wider community.

Kart Racing Pro

Are you board of all of the cartoony features on most Go-Kart games? Is Go-Karting a bit more of a professional gig for you? There are options out there, and among the most realistic is Kart Racing Pro, a simulation game that does a great job of capturing the dynamics and physics of high-speed outdoor Go-Karting.

Also worth checking out, while not a game in itself, is the kart racing mode on Gran Turismo 5, one of the greatest racing simulators of all time.

The Best Way to Experience Go-Karting…

Okay, so you might not be able to throw shells at each other, surf over water in a hovercraft, or take a magic star that makes you invincible, but hey, real life has more restrictions than video games. Still, no matter how fun the karting games are, nothing beats the real deal. There is no better way to experience Go-Karting than to come down to GPKs Go-Karting track in Toronto, where you can put your foot down and race with other real people; all without the danger of skidding on a banana skin.

Drag yourself away from the video world and come down to Grand Prix Kartways in Toronto today, for a family-friendly adrenaline pumped atmosphere.

Send In Your GoPro Toronto Go-Karting Videos

…And We Will Make A Compilation Of The Best Ones

Go Kart in Toronto |(647) 496 5838 | Grand Prix Kartways Downsview Park Toronto ON M3K 2B9

Go Karting in Toronto

Here at Grand Prix Kartways, we provide one of the most exciting and exhilarating Go-Kart tracks in Toronto. When people come to race with us, they love what they feel, and they feel what they love. We want to share that feeling with the world, and we can only do this through your eyes. We want you to send in your GoPro videos; the ones that show your most dramatic and heartfelt moments on the racetrack.

GoPro is a unique design of camera that was originally inspired by an idea. The idea came from surfer Nick Woodman, who wanted to be able to capture the best possible angles, that really showed what the action was like for the man in the wave, and not just for the onlooker stood on the beach.

GoPro has been adopted by many sports enthusiasts who wish to capture their moments of glory on video. No other camera would be able to quite capture the feeling of racing with us at GPK Go-Karting in Toronto. Nothing could illustrate the speed, the passion, the drive, as well as GoPro footage, other than actually being in the driver’s seat.

This is not to be a compilation of sideline footage; this is the track being chewed up before your eyes, the bed fast approaching, the undertake on the straight approaching the hairpin, the race to the finish line. This is Go-Karting.

So, What Are We Asking?

We want you to send in your favorite footage from your GoPro that shows you racing around a track in a Go-Kart. It can be old footage, or you can bring along your GoPro the next time you come for a drive.

We will then watch all of your footage, probably eat a bit of popcorn and enjoy the emotional ups and downs of life on the race course, and then compile the best clips into a mega-movie that really hits home. We hope to create something, with your help, that will truly capture the Go-Karting experience.
