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 cart. 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.

Damages/Card on File Policy
Before being allowed on track, all drivers 18 or older must put a credit card on file to cover any potential damages to equipment or the track. Drivers under 18 must have either a credit card on file themselves, or a credit card on file for a guardian who is assuming financial responsibility for the driver’s conduct at the Kartplex.
Arrive & Drive Group Policy
Groups will not be placed in races until all members of their party have arrived, unless they request otherwise. We will not hold spots in races for drivers who are not present. Group members who arrive after the rest of their party is already in a race should not expect to be able to join that race.
Arrival/Sold Out Policy
Due to the nature of our business, it can be difficult to know in advance when we will be busy enough that we will stop selling races to finish out the night. As a general rule, drivers should arrive no later than 30 minutes before the end of business hours, and we strongly encourage them to plan to arrive at least an hour before the Kartplex closes for the best chance at ensuring they can race on track. Please be aware there may be days when we sell out the rest of that day’s races and are unable to accommodate more drivers, regardless of when they arrive.
