Toronto Go Karting | Is Racing at GPK Safe for Kids?

February 12, 2014

Toronto go-karting with your kids is a fun way of bonding with them. Not only is it fun, but also go-karting can be an educational sport for your kid. More importantly, it is completely safe to race with your child at Grand Prix Kartways’ tracks.

Toronto go-karting in Grand Prix Kartways can be fast, competitive and completely safe for your kids. All that zooming around can be scary-looking from the sidelines, but here at GPK, we take extra precautions to ensure that all racers are completely safe as they use our tracks.

First, we make sure that each racer is using the right-sized kart based on their height. The minimum height for an adult is 132 centimeters and he or she must be at least 16 years of age. For the junior karts, your kid must be at least 122 centimeters in height and 10 years of age. The minimum height requirement is to make sure that racers can properly reach and operate the gas and brake pedals of our go-karts.

Second, there is zero tolerance for driving under the influence. We also don’t allow drivers from blocking and bumping other drivers. Racers who break the rules on horseplay will be given a 5-second slow penalty. If they continue to break the rules, they will be asked to leave the track.

And lastly, Grand Prix Kartways has the latest state-of-the-art safety technology built-in to their tracks. Not only do we have a ‘remote shutoff’ that will shut down all karts instantly in an event of a pile up, we also provide 4-point harness seatbelts and D.O.T certified racing helmets for all the racers’ use.

All these safety precautionary measures are executed to make sure that you have nothing to worry about when you race around Grand Prix Kartways with your kids.  We are so safe that Toronto4Kids, a leading parenting and kids website in Toronto, includes GPK as the only Indoor go karting facility in their directories. So come on down at GPK and make that bonding time with your kid a fun time to remember!
