Junior kart races will take place on a separate track in separate races lasting 5 minutes each; drivers must be at least 5 years of age and a minimum height of 36 inches.

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

Adult Races:

  • All heats are 10 minutes long; best lap time wins.
  • The number of laps completed in a single heat is completely up to the driver.

Junior Races:

  • All heats are 5 minutes long; everybody wins!
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 both during and after each race; results are emailed to the email address on your COTA Karting race account.

What do I need for my child to participate?

A parent or authorized guardian waiver must be signed before any participants under the age of 18 are permitted to race.

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

All Karts are governed for your safety. On the first lap (the ‘Warm Up’ lap) and the last lap (the ‘Cool Down’ lap), as well as 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.
