The Ignite program offers affordable entry into karting in an environment with a level playing field for all. Maximize track time and minimize maintenance and costs as you constantly improve your racing skills in an ultra-competitive environment.

The Gateway Kartplex SuperComp series provides the experienced karter with a challenging environment to further hone their driving skills and race craft. SuperComp class rules allow all chassis manufactures, softer tire compounds and have both 4-cycle and 2-cycle engine options. Many of our Ignite drivers also participate in SuperComp to maximize their seat time. More info…


Bringing “Arrive and Drive” kart racing to a new level, Gateway Kartplex’s iDrive Series puts you behind the wheel of our Sodi GT5 rental karts, which are equipped with Honda GX270cc engine packages. These karts can reach a top speed of 55mph and are capable of cornering at up to 2 lateral g-forces. The iDrive Series is a fun, safe and competitive environment at the finest purpose-built karting facility in the Midwest. More info…

For younger competitors, check out our new iDrive Junior Series! Drivers 12-15 years old can compete in the Kartplex’s special summer series, and even register for an Intro to Karting class designed to improve their on-track skills. More info…



Gateway Kartplex is proud to partner with Skip Barber Racing School, which has been helping racers of all levels improve their skill set for over 40 years. In a continued effort to promote the growth of our racers, the 2019 points champions in our three largest classes, Ignite Senior, Ignite Master and Briggs Senior, will be awarded a full three-day racing school entry. Second place finishers in those three classes will receive a one-day racing school, and third place finishers will receive a one-day driving school (limit one Skip Barber prize per driver). Drivers may choose to compete in their own backyard at World Wide Technology Raceway, or at a number of racetracks from coast to coast, including such iconic venues as Sebring International, Lime Rock Park, Road Atlanta and Laguna Seca.


World Wide Technology Raceway and Gateway Kartplex are committed to the continued growth of our racers, and excited to be able to offer this opportunity to our champions!
