The Gateway Kartplex is a purpose-built karting facility inside the oval track at World Wide Technology Raceway. Inside turns one and two, the Kartplex is completely independent from the surrounding racing facilities and can race 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 an exciting 11-turn, half-mile design with a variation of long, late apex turns, a long back straight and a tough complex of tightly tucked turns sure to test even the best drivers. For the Ignite and SuperComp Racing Series, the Kartplex runs the track in a variety of configurations, including backwards, no chicane, 1/8-mile oval mirroring the World Wide Technology Raceway oval track, and our signature SuperTrack, which sends karts out onto the road course to compete at super fast speeds!
The facility features a variety of ways to become involved in karting. Rental karts are available to run daily for individuals and group events, as well as the Kartplex’s competitive iDrive Rental Racing Series. For private kart owners, the Kartplex is available for open testing during regular business hours and features two ultra competitive racing series: the Ignite Racing Series and the SuperComp Racing Series.
Track amenities include a fully stocked SpeedCenter pro shop, which carries the latest in gear and spare parts as well as licensed apparel, drinks and snacks. Gateway Kartplex also has on-site storage for your karts and gear, and private garages for racing enthusiasts who want a permanent space so they can be track side with the best seat in the house on race day. Many private garage owners turn their space into a home away from home with A/C, big screen TVs, refrigerators, custom cabinets and flooring.
As the St. Louis area’s only authorized Margay Racing dealer, the Gateway Kartplex can get you in the seat and on the race track with ease. Your brand-new race kart will be custom-fitted to your specifications, and we offer racing divisions for kids as young as five to adults of all ages who are still kids at heart.
