5 Awesome Things You Get Out of Go Karting in Toronto

In truth, there are more than 5 awesome things you can benefit by racing on a Toronto Go Kart.

We will only give you 5 that have made an impact in our readers’ lives.

Toronto go kart racing is an activity that surely pumps up your adrenaline, stimulates your brain and strengthens bonds among peers and family. To be perfectly specific about it, here are what we identified as the top 5 awesome things you get out of Toronto go kart racing.


Brain Stimulation | Benefit of Toronto Go Karting | 647-496-5838

 

Benefit #1: Brain Stimulation

Although most physical activities stimulate the brain, go karting in Toronto’s leading indoor raceway has a little bit more to give with its F1 style raceway. The experience is more realistic and more exhilarating than that of others.

Decision-making.

Racing demands a driver’s sound decision making ability by allowing the driver to create plans on how to finish ahead of the others. A good race driver would first and foremost assess the road he will have to trek, anticipating difficulties in some sections of the racetrack and formulating plans to ease through those. He will have to foresee that other racers are creating the same plans. How he will manage to zip away when a sharp turn bottlenecks, will really depend on what available options he has at that exact moment. He may take the turn freely without trouble if he is well ahead of the pack when he reaches the obstacle, or he may be sandwiched between aggressive drivers. That is where he will have to utilize his sound decision making skills taking into consideration the strength of his vehicle and weighing out its limitations.

Practice makes perfect,

as the saying goes. Trials and errors are analyzed and plans are modified to establish a course of action that works to attain objectives. It is common knowledge that many of our famous Nascar and Formula One or Honda Indy superstars started their careers zipping around the race track on a go kart. 

Reflexes

are put to the test when un-anticipated events happen during the race. That sends signals to the brain to heighten all the necessary senses and sharpen the driver’s reflexes. One factor that should be emphasized here as well, should be control over these reflexes. By definition, reflexes are nearly instantaneous, involuntary movement in response to a stimulus. It is done without thinking and automatically happens as a reaction. Some reflexes could be beneficial to you, some might not.  Learn how to control these reflexes.

Mastery of Controls | | Benefit of Toronto Go Karting | 647-496-5838

Benefit #2: Mastery of the Controls of a Toronto Go Kart

As the great Bruce Lee once said, in order to effectively use your weapon, you should become one with it. Well, there are no weapons in racing. But studying your go kart, its strengths and its limitations and compensating with it allows you to use it to its optimum potential. Humans are the most adaptable animals. We easily learn to adjust to the changing surroundings and the corresponding changes in its demands. That is why if there is a need to adjust to conform with the controls of the electric go kart, we can easily do just that. Thus, mastery of the controls is achieved in no time.

 

Healthy Competition | Benefit of Toronto Go Karting | 647-496-5838

Benefit #3: Fosters Healthy Competition

Racing is interactive and fun; and if used by companies as a team building tool, it creates camaraderie and team work among workers through healthy competition. That strengthens working relationships and stimulates workplace cooperation, making it easier for them achieve a singular objective.

 

Adrenaline-Rush | Benefit of Toronto Go Karting | 647-496-5838

Benefit #4: Adrenaline Rush for A Healthier You

Physical activity, in moderate amounts, facilitates the release of Adrenaline, sometimes referred to as the super human hormone. It positively affects the body by increasing blood flow into the tissues and brain during the thrill of a race. That is why a driver feels a sudden flushing, a gush of heat flooding the whole body which leads to a sharper mind and a stronger heart. The feeling of heat is caused by the increased blood supply into the tissues as the blood vessels react to the Adrenaline hormone by dilating allowing more blood to pass through. Whoah! Too technical there! But you get the drift, right?

Family Bonding | Benefit of Toronto Go Karting | 647-496-5838

Benefit #5: Builds Bonds Between Peers, Co-Workers or Family

The human body responds well to a stimulus that originates from someone whom he or she is bonded with. As mentioned earlier, that sense of belongingness and improved perception of self-worth develops into a sense of openness towards that other person. If you are a very busy father who barely has the time to spend with your kids, go karting is a perfect tool to re-establish that trusting relationship and encourage re-building of negative perceptions between you and your family member.

One reader once attested to the effectiveness of go karting as a tool to rebuild his relationship with his son. Not only did it open his son’s eyes to the fact that the father genuinely loves him. But it also enlightened the father of his shortcomings. Melodramatic huh? Before we received that comment, all of these things were just words that occupied our blog space. But then upon knowing that there was at least one, in the billions of people around the world, who was moved by our words and had went through a positive change in his life, writing writing suddenly had a purpose, a responsibility, almost like a movement.

Why don’t you give Grand Prix Kartways a call at (647) 496-5838 and book your race. You’ll never know what impact a simple Toronto go kart race can have in your life. Call us today.

Karting Extremes Series: Electric Vs Petrol

The debate about which type of Toronto go-karts are best rages on.

Is it better to take an adrenaline packed journey in a gas powered go-kart, or an electric one? Which one brings the best experience? On the one hand there is the big and mighty gas engine machines, and on the other hand the crafty and nimble electric go-karts.

We would have to say that as far as adrenaline packed recreational go-karting is concerned, this one is a bit of a no-brainer…

Petrol heads gather round.

This may be a difficult lesson to take in. Electric go-karts are superior to petrol ones in nearly every way, especially on the exciting twisty and turny high speed indoor go-karting tracks like GPK in Toronto.

More traditional go-kart enthusiasts will likely jump to defend the petrol karts to the bitter end. They may claim that the petrol go-kart is faster, and that it gives a more exhilarating and raw feeling. Each to their own, but we could make a pretty convincing argument as to why the electric kart is actually better.

In truth, the only advantage of a petrol go-kart in this day and age is the noise it makes. Some people like that deep growl. Other people think it’s really annoying to have to listen to while they are trying to spectate. It seems that die-hard fans of the petrol kart must enjoy the rush they get from the noise and the fumes more than they enjoy the rush of the race itself!

We have thought a lot about the choice of vehicles that we use down at our Toronto Go-Karting track. We have tried and tested, and we have done our research, and we firmly believe in the electric kart. Here is why…

 

I Thought Petrol Meant Fast?

A common misconception is that a petrol powered kart is automatically faster than an electric one. Maybe, once upon a time when electric karts were in their advent, petrol karts would have been faster. They may have even been more reliable, and have better handling. That is no longer true.

 

Modern electric karts can be just as fast, if not faster than gas powered ones.

A gas powered go-kart is typically between 6.5-9HP, and has a combustible two stroke engine, similar to that of a lawnmower.

That means there’s a lot of power in those batteries and a lot of potential in electric vehicles. Jamie: With electrics, you generate a fraction of the pollution per mile that you do with gas vehicles–without any sacrifice to those of us in a hurry. – Jamie Hyneman of MythBusters: Popular Science

The electric karts that we have here at Grand Prix Kartways Toronto, are 20HP electric engines. The electric karts does weigh a little more, and the top speeds are around the same as what you would expect off a gas model.

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

Electric Go Karts

Performance-wise, electric go-karts are Superior.

With an electric kart there are no RPMs. When you put your foot down, you get speed straight away. This faster acceleration makes the electric karts much more fast and furious when it comes to courses with lots of sharp bends and turns, such as the one at our Toronto Go-Karting track. Top speed can be reached in just 3 seconds.

Overall, the electric karts give a better experience to those behind the wheel. Better handling. Faster acceleration out of corners. A more raunchy and speedy race. And of course, less toxic fumes in your face all of the time.

Healthy, Happy Racing

Pretty extreme. Suddenly ‘enjoying the sound of a petrol engine’ doesn’t seem like a great excuse anymore.

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

Toronto Go-Karts

Electric go-karts in Toronto give out absolutely no emissions. This leaves the racetrack, and the whole facility, completely free from harmful and unpleasant smog and pollution. Electric cars are nice and quiet, and still pack a punch that leaves you rushing for more race time!

Safety is also improved when electric cars are used. The track remains free of oil that could otherwise cause skids. There is much less risk of engine overheating or fires. We can even remotely control top speeds on the track, or cut off engines in the event of a problem.

This is always important for concerned parents to know,
but it also enhances the go-karting experience too, and allows you to focus more on the track and the other racers. With electric go-karts you can just zoom on up and have some fun!

Summary
At Grand Prix Kartways we truly believe that the electric kart is far superior. They give a better experience for the driver, for the spectator, and they are better for the environment too. That is why we use the latest and greatest electric go-karts on the market are at the Go-Karting facility of Grand Prix Kartways in Toronto .

Come along today and experience a highly adrenaline packed day out that you will never forget!

5 Women Who Could Tear Up the Go Kart Track in Toronto

More and more women are getting into motorsport racing, something that’s traditionally been considered a male endeavour.

The beauty about motorsports is that because it involves the racing or competing with machines, men and women are on a completely equal footing and can easily compete against one another.

We take a look at some of the top lady racers who got their start in go-karts.

1. Danica Patrick.

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

Danica Patrick

While she left the go-karts behind long ago, former IndyCar and current NASCAR driver Danica Patrick got her start on the small tracks racing go-karts in and around her home of Roscoe, Illinois when she was a pre-teen and teen.

Prior to winning the Indy Japan 300 in 2008 and being the top finishing female in the Indianapolis 500 in 2009 (3rd) and the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 2011 (4th), Patrick won the World Karting Association Grand National Championship three times throughout the 1990s.

 

2. Alice Powell

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

Alice Powell

This young woman from Chipping Norton in the United Kingdom has the goal of becoming the first successful British woman to compete in F1. She’s well on her way, being the first female to win a Formula Renault race in the UK, a series where the cars race up to 150mph wheel-to-wheel.

She got her start on an indoor go-kart racing track at the tender age of eight and has been going strong ever since.

 

3. Sarah Marie Fisher

Born in 1980 in Ohio, Fisher now runs Sarah Fisher Racing, which she started in 2008. However, before becoming the first and only female IndyCar team owner (as well as the youngest IndyCar team owner) she raced go-karts and quarter midgets when she was a child and teenager.

Fisher has many records to her name as a female racer, including setting the track qualifying record at Kentucky Speedway with a qualifying speed of 221.390 mph. That’s a lap time of 24.0661 seconds, which is a record that still stands today.

4. Alison MacLeod

Making her go-kart racing debut at seven, MacLeod, who was born in 1989 in Mississauga, ON, is the winningest female racer in United States Auto Club (USAC) history. She quickly stepped up from 4-cycle sprint karts to 80cc shifter karts by age 11 and by the time she was a teenager, she had won numerous championships on the USAC circuit.

Today, MacLeod is more likely to be seen behind a camera than in a car, having started a lucrative photography career.

5. Maryeve Dufault

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

Marveye Dufault

This Quebec native, born in 1982, actually got her start in motocross at age four, but switched to go-karts at age eight. From there, she eventually made her way into NASCAR racing.

Aside from racing, Dufault is also an actress and model, endeavours she is currently pursuing.

For its part, Grand Prix Kartways promotes females in racing by actively trying to get more girls interested in go-kart racing in Toronto. To do this, the company has partnered with Sweetie Girl Racing to present the Ladies Driving Clinic Series, a program for girls 10 and older that teaches them go-kart basics. Clinics run Saturdays and Sundays from September to May.

The next great female go-kart racer is out there and GPK wants to find her!

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

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

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.

Boost your road confidence! Practice your driving in our indoor go karts

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

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!

The Science of Cornering in an Indoor Go Kart Track in Toronto

What makes a great Toronto go karting driver?

Go Karting Toronto | (647) 496-2888  | The Science of Cornering in an Indoor Go Kart Track in Toronto

In go karting in Toronto, the more challenging a corner the more fun it is.

When it really comes down to it, cornering is the defining factor in any race.

Incidentally, it is also the trickiest part to master for any go kart enthusiast; new or experienced. When you begin to learn how to cruise in a kart at your favorite go kart track, cornering is what you will want to come to grips with.

Go karts are actually very different to cars.

They require completely different handling, so even if you have passed your driving test, that does not necessarily make you an expert in the world of karts. You will still have to learn, just like everyone else! The major difference when it comes to cornering in a go kart, is that all of the wheels move at the same speed. This means that the inside wheels travel less distance, and to compensate for this and give you more control, the rear wheels are designed to lift off the ground.

Toronto Go Karting 101: To flatten the curve is the main goal of cornering.

This is all about the line that you take as you approach the corner. You should aim to keep very wide, and then steer in close to the apex as you turn the corner.

How well you manage the corner is determined not only by how good your line is, but also by how well you handle the forces of acceleration and deceleration, as you take the bend, and as you come out onto the straightaway. Here is a quick how-to that will help you to understand what is required:

  • As you approach from the straight, find your line – as wide as you need.
  • Take your foot off the accelerator, and when the power is off completely, begin to brake.
  • Brake until you have reached a speed in which you feel comfortable taking the corner. Do not brake as you turn, as this can often cause oversteer.
  • Lift your foot off the brakes, and then turn into the corner.
  • Aim for the apex.
  • As you pass the apex, straighten up your go kart, and begin to accelerate as soon as you have straightened – but not before.

Practice makes perfect, and every corner is different.

Go Kart Toronto

All you can really do is work on your lines, and get a feel for the braking and acceleration. Once you have a decent amount of control over the go kart you will become confident enough to take the corners faster, and accelerate out of them sooner. Try out some go karting in Toronto for a fun way to learn.

There is no better way than to get out there on the track and give it a go, skid and slide a few times, and improve. We have one of the best tracks for go karts that Toronto has to offer, and would be more than happy to see you take on some hairpins!
