How long is each race? How many laps do I get? 

· All heats are 10 minutes long.

· The number of laps completed in a single heat is completely up to the driver, our fastest drivers can reach up to 10 laps in a heat.

How is the driver's performance measured?

· Our drivers are measured by fastest lap time completed in the heat, not by position. 

· Times are displayed digitally around the track after each race, time sheets are given out when available.

What should I wear to kart?

· Closed toed shoes are required. High heels are not permitted.

· No loose clothing (scarves, ponchos, over-sized garments)

Do I need a notarized consent form for my child to participate?

. If a parent or authorized guardian is present, they must be responsible for signing the child's digital waiver at check-in.

Why do I sometimes experience sputtering with my kart in a race?

· All Karts are governed for your safety. When an incident occurs on track (around you or not) staff will govern the speeds of the karts to ensure the incident has been cleared/corrected before karts return to maximum speed and the race can continue.

Circuit of The Americas and COTA Karting has introduced enhanced sanitation protocols to promote safe, socially-distant fun in the midst of the current pandemic. These protocols are aligned with city and federal recommendations for cleanliness and safety during this time 

In addition to standard cleaning procedures, COTA Karting will:

  • Add new signage to staging areas to promote social distancing.
  • Shift to a pre-registration only model (guests on-site can register through their phones) that is a 100% cashless operation. Only credit card will be accepted.
  • Participants should arrive no more than 30 minutes before their race start time.
  • Disinfect the karts after each individual use.
  • Disinfect helmets after each use through our new Ride Safe UVGI Helmet Decontamination Unit.
  • Limit non-participatory spectators and encourage guests to wear masks prior to boarding



Soar high above the karting track and the main straight of Circuit of The Americas on our brand new zipline! You'll see COTA from a whole new angle as you take flight over the country's premier racing facility. Open during standard COTA Karting hours.
