The Pit Indoor Kart Racing has 20 Sodi RX7 adult karts and 10 Sodi youth karts. Our Go-Karts are NOT your typical slowed down amusement karts. Capable of speeds over 45MPH, these Sodi karts are unquestionably the best adrenaline rush you can have without the high costs of pro-racing.
Created in 1981, SodiKart has been a powerhouse in the professional karting scene. Many features on our Sodi adult and youth karts have been derived from Sodi’s professional competition karts.
The Pit Indoor Kart Racing’s 70,000 Sq. Ft. track is one of the largest, single indoor kart tracks in the country. At just over a 3rd of a mile in length, our track offers 20 challenging turns. Special care went into the design so it would challenge experienced racers, yet still be fun for beginners.
What separates our indoor track from the rest is the 20-foot width all the way around the track. Our 22-foot wide front straightaway allows for exciting grid-starts for group events. Simply put, more room on track means more passing, more speed, and more of that adrenaline rush.
Q: How old do you have to be to race? Do I have to have a driver's licence?A: To race our youth karts (remember these karts are much faster than amusement karts) you must be between the ages of 8 - 15 and at least 48 inches tall. For our adult karts you must be age 16 or older and have proof of age (driver's license, birth certificate, passport, etc). All customers will sign a Safety Waiver specifying their age. It is illegal to falsify a birth-date on this legal document.
Q: Can youth and adults race at the same time?A: No. Due to the size difference of our youth and adult karts we do not allow them to be on the track at the same time for safety reasons. We do occasionally allow parents to race with their kids but this must be scheduled ahead of time because we do not offer this option if we're busy. Don't expect this option to always be available.
Q: Do I need anything to race? Can I bring my own helmet?A: All that you need is a fully clothed body and closed-toed shoes (no sandals or flip-flops). We supply neck-collars (required), race-suits (optional), and helmets (required). You can bring your own helmet as long as it's closed-face, good condition, and DOT, SNELL, or equivalent safety approved. We don't allow open-face helmets, motocross helmets (even with goggles), or pit crew helmets. Motorcycle helmets with the movable front piece are allowed as long as it's DOT approved and closed while racing.
Q: How long is one go-kart race? When does the time start?A: Races are 8 minutes long and start when the last kart leaves the pit area. Usually you can do 8 - 10 laps depending on how fast you go.
Q: How many karts do you guys put on the track at once? Can my friends and I do a grid start?A: We run up to 10 karts at a time for regular "Arrive & Drive" races. For Group and Corporate Events we’ll run up to 16 karts at a time. We only do grid starts for Group & Corporate Events.
Q: Me and a bunch of my friends want to race together; can we get a group discount?A: Sure. We offer group discounts for 8 or more people. Check out the Pricing & Specials page.
Q: Do I have to wear a race suit?A: No. We do have racing suits but they are not required.
Q: My son/daughter races professionally; can they can race the adult karts?A: It’s awesome to see youths with great talent but our insurance policy stipulates that a youth driver (ages 8 - 15) can only drive our youth karts. There is, however, an exception to this rule. If a youth is between the ages of 13 - 15 they can take our "Advanced Youth Karting Course", which familiarizes them with our adult karts. Upon completion of the course, that youth (ages 13 - 15) is allowed to drive our adult karts anytime. They MUST pass OUR course which certifies them under OUR insurance policy that they can safely drive the adult karts. NO EXCEPTIONS. For more information check out the Driving Schools page.
Q: Is the racing safe? Can you get hurt?A: Indoor kart racing is one of the safest forms of racing because the races take place in a controlled environment, monitored by our well-trained track marshals. Like any sport, it is possible to get hurt but this rarely happens and only happens because someone failed to follow our Safety Rules.
Q: I have a small child, can I race with them on my lap?A: No.
