Can I race without any previous karting experience?

Absolutely! COTA Karting caters to all experience levels from novice to expert. We offer different classes of karts to our guests to facilitate the best experience at every level (see kart classes listed below).

What are the race classes?

We currently offer two types of races: Competitive and Fun Races. The karts are the same and they go the same speed in each of these classes. The main difference is that drivers must be 16 years and older to race in our Competitive heats, while our Fun Races are for drivers 12 years and older.

Do you have double karts or junior karts?

We do! Both specialty karts are available on a first come, first serve basis in our Fun Races only. You simply book into the Fun Race and then request these karts upon check-in. At this time, drivers for our junior karts must be at least 12 years of age and a minimum height of 48 inches. Double karts must be driven by someone at least 16 years old and 58” tall. The passenger in the double kart must be at least 48” tall.

Do you have hand-controlled karts?

Yes! We have a hand-controlled kart to accommodate those who need it! Inquire about it at the front desk upon check-in.

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.
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 emailed the email address on your COTA Karting race account.
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.
