How old do you have to be to drive?
Karting is by height not by age. Our Jr Karts have a minimum height of 52″ and our Sr Karts have a minimum height of 60″.
We do not have any 2 seater karts.
How long will I get to drive?
Each race session is called a heat. Each heat is a 10 minute timed race. Each heat will have multiple karts on the track at the same time. Prices listed are per driver per heat. We do offer bundles for multiple heats. These bundles are not transferrable between drivers.
Do I need a reservation?
All of our public Arrive and Drive karting is on a first come first served basis.
What do I need to bring?
Our Arrive and Drive karting includes the kart, helmet, headsock and neck collar.
You just need to wear close-toed shoes.
Is Go Karting a family activity?
Yes. Kids who are 52″ or taller are welcome to kart with us! Parents will need to fill out the Minor Waiver form at the bottom of this page before children under 18 can drive.
How big is the karting track?
NOLA Motorsports offers a 40-acre karting facility that features 30 total acres of track. The Arrive & Drive course is 3/10 of a mile. There are 3 circuits and up to 80 configurations.
Do I need to own my own kart?
No. Most people rent one of our Arrive and Drive karts, which are maintained in top condition and regularly inspected.
There are 2 types of standard karts available for rent: the 25 MPH Jr kart and the 50 MPH Sr kart. The Jr kart is designed for anyone 52″ to 60″ tall. Individuals over 60″ tall may drive the Sr kart. Members of your party aged 16 with a driver’s license may drive the Sr kart regardless of height.
If you want to geaux faster we have our RT8 and GTMax karts. The RT8 is similar to our Sr kart but with more acceleration whereas the GTMax is a two stroke engine capable of speeds up to 65 MPH!
If you do have your own kart, check out our kart race series managed by Jay Howard’s Motorsports Driver Development program.
Do you offer souvenirs or gift cards?
Yes. Our online shop also offers gift cards, NOLA Motorsports apparel, and more.
Do you do kart maintenance?

Can I have a party here?

What about weather?
We monitor the weather and will close the track if there is lightning or water build-up on the track. We will try to clear any puddling and resume racing. For lightning we will have a 20 minute delay on track activity. Check our facebook page for more up to date information concerning weather. Karting does not operate when temperatures are below 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
