Michael Schumacher, Sebastian Vettel, Jeff Gordon and Danica Patrick all got their start in motorsports in the karting ranks. Karting is the most accessible and affordable form of motorsports, and is the ideal place to hone your skills as a driver and mechanic. From learning driving lines to mastering braking zones, karting creates a real-time platform for drivers to make changes on a lap-by-lap basis.
The Kartplex’s Sodi GT5 rental karts are not like your average indoor rental go kart. These gas-powered outdoor karts are the fastest in the St. Louis area, reaching speeds of up to 55 miles per hour down our 700-foot back straight and encountering up to 2 lateral g-forces on the 11-turn half-mile road course. Each rental kart is adjusted and tuned to tight specifications for equal performance to put the results in the hands of the drivers.
