If you are surfing the web and have found our site we invite you to come and join us for a day of kart racing! It is the best way to get you acclimated to the sport. You need to get out to the track to watch a race and ride a go-kart. After that if you still have questions, the Oakland Valley staff will be happy to answer them. Call us, e-mail us or ask while you’re at the track in person.
Too far away from Oakland Valley Speedway? Seek out local racetracks and learn about their programs. Know what the local rules are where you will race before you buy anything.
When you come out to the track on a race day, buy a pit pass (it will allow you into the pit area where all the go-karters are, and is also personal insurance) and wander around to see what goes on. Ask questions, as 100% of the people who race at OVS are willing to answer your questions. They were beginners once too, and can add some insight to your quest for go-kart knowledge. Ask them why they are involved in the sport and what they like best about go-karting.
Still not sure?
Rent a go-kart and try it out! OVS rents go-karts by the half hour during open practice days, reservations are required so be sure to call ahead. We have rental karts for eight years old and up. Once you have rented the kart and taken it for a spin on a practice day then you can rent a kart on a race day and race in our Rookie Class.
