6 Undeniable Reasons Toronto Go Karting is Hated

Here is a statement that pains us to say, but is unfortunately true: Some people in Toronto hate go karting.

How in the world someone could hate ripping around a track with a group of smiling friends or family without a care in the world is beyond us, but some people just plain don’t like it. Here are six potential reasons why people hate go-karting.

Reasons Why Toronto Go Karting is Hated | GPK | www.gokarttoronto.com

It’s seen by some adults as a kid’s pastime

There’s no doubt that kids love go-karting and go-karts, which are basically miniature race cars, are well-suited to children. But, children’s love of go-karting can cause some adults to resent it because they see it as just something children do.

But, we can definitely tell you that adults have a blast when they step into that kart and go for a spin around the track. We’ve seen some hesitant adults break into huge smiles once they’ve tried it. Go-karts aren’t just for kids.

Some people find it boring

A lot of people love go-karting because it’s so different from what they’re used to when driving. Instead of driving their car or SUV through stop-and-go city traffic, they get to feel what it’s like in an open cockpit in a place where they can go as fast as the vehicle will allow (while still being completely safe) on a race track.

But, to someone who is used to driving a motorcycle or a dirt bike or something like that, a simple electric go-kart probably isn’t going to be particularly exciting or fun. That’s okay, though. People have fun in different ways and we love that we can provide people with a good time in a safe and fun environment. Plus, some of those thrill seekers got their first rush of adrenaline while in a go-kart at a young age, so we’re happy to have inspired them.

Reasons Why Toronto Go Karting is Hated | GPK | www.gokarttoronto.com
Reasons Why Toronto Go Karting is Hated | GPK | www.gokarttoronto.com

People think it’s unsafe

Accidents happen and when they happen on a professional go-kart racing circuit, they have the potential to be pretty brutal. People see that and/or read the stories about freak accidents happening at go-kart tracks involving people getting terribly injured (usually by clothing or hair getting caught in the moving parts of the vehicle) and they just assume go-karts are dangerous.

It’s true that go-karts have the potential to be unsafe, but racing go-karts are totally different than rental go-karts like we have at GPK. Our karts are safe and we take every precaution to avoid any kind of mishap. From our four point harnesses to our ability to electronically shut off all karts on the track simultaneously to our comprehensive staff training to our mandatory helmet rule, we take safety seriously at GPK.

People have had bad experiences due to corporate team building

We constantly tell people that go-karting is a great corporate team building exercise and we stand by that. Who wouldn’t want to come and do something fun rather than participating in some kind of silly boot camp?

We have to admit, though, that sometimes corporate team building exercises can be forced onto people who just don’t want to participate, whether they dislike their co-workers or they are just resentful for having to do something they didn’t have any say in or whatever. Sometimes people have a bad experience with a team building exercise regardless of what that exercise is. But, if everyone is on board, there is no denying that go-kart racing can bring a team closer together.

Really competitive people can take it overboard

We all have that one friend (or possibly two or three) that turns everything into a competition. If at least two people are doing the same thing, for that one ultra competitive person, it has to be about who does it faster, who gets more done, who can raise more money etc. A little competition can be a good thing, but when you take it overboard, it ruins it for everyone involved.

Most people won’t mind coming in last if they’ve had a good time while doing it and whoever comes in first is humble about it. At GPK, even though we do have races and keep track of who finishes where, the focus is always on the fun and not on who finished where.

Some Toronto go kart tracks are run poorly

Fortunately, this isn’t something we have to deal with at GPK, but some go-kart tracks have a less than stellar reputation and often that reputation is well-deserved. Whether it’s lax safety regulations or rude staff members, a poorly run track can sour a person’s perception of go-karting.

It’s a shame when that happens and if it has happened to you, we invite you to come to GPK so we can show you how a go-karting experience is supposed to be (spoiler: it’s supposed to be fun and awesome).

These are six reasons that people can end up doing what should be impossible; hating go-karting. Here at Toronto’s best indoor go-kart track, we like to make it our mission to ensure everyone has a stellar time while participating in one of the funnest activities around. So, if you know someone who has had a bad go-karting experience, bring them down to GPK and we’ll help turn their frowns upside down when it comes to go-karting.

Will Go-Kart Racing Ever Rule The World?

Will_Toronto_GO_Karting_Rule_the_World | Go Karts Toronto | Toronto Go Kart Blog | www.Gokarttoronto.com

If you have ever been go kart racing in Toronto, then you will already know how much fun it is to fly along the straight sections and hit a perfect corner to make your best lap time! Nothing beats it.

The first go-kart was built in California by a man named Art Ingles. I wonder if he knew just how popular the sport would be today?

Since the dawn and early development of the go-kart during the 1950s and 60s, this exciting sport really has come a long way. The go-karts are faster, safer, and cleaner now. The tracks offer more thrills for racers. The go-karting establishments, both competitive and recreational, offer an accessible and entertaining pastime for thousands of people, from all walks of life.

Go-Karting Is Still Gaining Popularity

One thing is for sure… Toronto go kart racing is still gaining popularity. There are now over 150,000 karters of all ages in the U.S. You could call it a revolution, and you wouldn’t be wrong! Maybe go-karting will take over the world one day.

Accessibility

There are many reasons for this rise in popularity. The first is the accessibility of the sport. Children as young as 8 years old can be trained and licensed for competitive go-kart racing. Many classes accommodate youngsters, and in terms of recreation, well, here at GPK in Toronto we even have junior karts for kids!

The fact that children can enjoy go karting in Toronto, whether recreationally or competitively, increases the number of families who choose to take a day out at the races.

More ladies are currently joining the revolution too, with go-kart tracks seeing a rise in the number of female guests and hen parties. The combination of adrenaline packed fun, and laid-back party atmosphere, makes go-karting an awesome alternative to a pointless night out at the bars again.

Toronto Go Karting Reaches Celebrity Status!

NASCAR is now one of the most popular sports in America. It is not the same as go-karting, but this general buzz around high-speed, adrenaline filled action is definitely contagious.

As more people start to watch the stock car racing, more people also want to feel the speed and hands-on fun for themselves. Go-karting is the most accessible racing sport, and fun for the whole family.

It is even possible for young karters to reach formula-1 racing status, directly from go-karting. Red Bull sponsor national tryouts for 13-17 year olds, and thousands of drivers participate every year.

In fact, quite a lot of celebrity formula-1 drivers started in go-karting. Ever heard of Kimi Raikkonen, Michael Shumacher, and the legendary Lewis Hamilton? All of them started their career go-karting. This has helped to popularize the sport.

Due to the rising popularity of Toronto go kart racing, helped along by influences from stars like Lewis Hamilton, the highly accessible form of racing has caught the eyes of venture capitalists, who have continued to invest and expand their empires of race tracks.

For example, Connections Capital from the UK invested £9 million to buy-out TeamSport Racing, and have opened several new circuits since.

Go-Karting Can Rule Your World!
In all fairness, go-karting already does rule the world. It is popular on nearly every continent, and one of the most accessible forms of racing available. Toronto Go kart racing can most definitely rule your world, that’s for sure!

No matter what age you are, what the occasion is, or what your experience level may be, you can enjoy an adrenaline packed day of adventure go-kart racing. Head on down to GPK in Toronto, and experience the magic for yourself!

Helmets, Your Protection in a Toronto Go-Karting Crash

Toronto Go-Karting 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.

We have a video on the Safety Features of a Go-Kart. Check it out!

Grand Prix Kartways | 75 Carl Hall Road Bay 3, Unit #9 Parc Downsview Park Toronto, ON Canada M3K 2B9 | (647) 955-3884 http://gokarttoronto.com

Helmets are compulsory when Go Karting in Toronto.

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.

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.

Toronto Go Kating | 75 Carl Hall Rd. Downsview Park Toronto ON M3K 2B9 Canada | http://gokarttoronto.com

Go-Kart crashes can happen anytime.

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

 

Learn more about Toronto Go-Karting Safety rules here.
Helmets with visors, such as the ones that we provide at our Go-Karting racetrack 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.

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.

6 Reasons Why You Will Enjoy Toronto Go Karting Indoors!

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.

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

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.

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

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.
