HOW FAST DO GO-KARTS GO?
Do you have the need for speed? If you’re preparing to let rip on one of our 35+ go kart tracks around the UK, one of the first questions you’re likely to have is, how fast do our go karts go?
We don’t blame you! There’s nothing better than the feeling of overtaking your competitors, acing those tight corners and cruising to victory.
WHAT'S THE HIGHEST SPEED FOR GO-KARTING AT TEAMSPORT?
We pride ourselves on creating world-class go karting tracks that are exciting, exhilarating and adventurous without compromising on safety.
This is why our adult go karts have an impressive maximum speed of 40 mph.
A speed of 40 mph gives you the chance to put the medal to the mettle and enjoy a fierce race around one of our circuits, but ensures you and your competitors are safe and prepared to nail the tight turns. Don’t forget to wave at our crew as you zoom past!
WHAT IS THE MAX SPEED IN JUNIOR GO-KARTING?
Along with creating lifelong memories, safety is our highest priority and we understand that it will be yours too! This is why our junior go karts have a lower top speed than our adult go karts.
The junior go karts at all our locations have a maximum speed of 25 mph. This is the perfect speed for your mini-adrenaline junkies to get a taste of true adventure and have the time of their lives, just at a slightly calmer pace than the adults.
HOW FAST ARE ELECTRIC GO-KARTS?
We also have a range of brilliant electric-powered go karts in locations across the UK.
If you’re heading out to one of our shiny new electric circuits, you’re bound to be thinking about whether electric go karts are as fast as petrol go karts. So, how fast are electric go karts?
You’ll be pleased to know, whether you’re cruising around one of our electric tracks or racing down the straights of one of our petrol tracks, the maximum speeds for our adult and junior go karts remain the same. Adults can expect to enjoy a high octane adventure in an electric go kart at up to 40 mph, while juniors will be able to go for gold at speeds of up to 25 mph.
WHAT CAN IMPACT GO-KARTING SPEEDS?
Did you know…there are several things that can have an impact on your speed when you race around one of our circuits? That’s right, if you’re truly in it to win it, you should think about these factors when preparing to take our track by storm:
Type of go kart - While the maximum speed of our go karts are the same, your speed could depend on whether you use an electric or petrol engine as petrol go karts are lighter so can help you make spectacular corner turns, while electric go karts will send you full steam ahead on the straights.
Weight - The weight of the driver can have a big impact on how fast a go kart goes around the track. Take a look at our blog about weight limits for go karting.
How smooth you drive - This one is nothing to do with our go karts, this one is down to your skills on the track! The smoother you navigate the circuit, the faster you’ll speed towards the finish line.
How competitive you are - How much do you want to win? If you’re truly going for gold and aiming for pole position, the adrenaline is likely to get you through the course faster.
