The Gateway Kartplex is a purpose built karting facility inside the oval track at the Gateway Motorsports Park. Inside turns one and two, the Kartplex is completely independent from the surrounding racing facilities and can be run on while the oval and road course are in use. The Kartplex offers a unique location that fully engulfs you in the surrounding motorsports while still maintaining a beautiful view of downtown St. Louis.
The Kartplex offers a variety of track layout options and can facilitate two racing groups simultaneously. In its longest layout, the track is an 11 turn, .55 mile design with a variation of long, late apex turns, long back straight and a tough complex of tightly tucked turns that are sure to test even the best drivers. The track also features an 1/8 mile oval track option which mirrors the Gateway Motorsports Park NASCAR track.
The facility will feature a variety of ways to become involved in karting. Rental karts will be run daily and are available for individual rentals throughout the day, corporate events and a competitive rental racing series – iDrive Rental Series. For kart owners, the Kartplex will be available for open lapping anytime during the week and will feature two ultra competitive racing series: Ignite Racing Series and Super Comp Racing Series.
Track amenities include a fully stocked ‘SpeedCenter’ pro shop that will carry the latest in gear and spare parts, on site storage for your karts and gear and private garages for those who wish to maintain a more permanent residence.
