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.

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!
