About Kart MARRS
Road racing, or enduro kart racing, is done on road courses from one to four miles in length such as Hallett (OK) Motor Racing Circuit, Lake Afton (KS) and Lake Garnett (KS), Miller Motorsports Park (UT), Motorsports Park Hastings (NE), Mid Ohio Sports Car Course, Laguna Seca (CA), Virginia International Raceway and Daytona International Speedway (FL). Drivers from 8 years of age to 70+ compete in races running from 20 minutes to 45 minutes in length. Both sit-up and lay-down chassis are used and speeds are generally from 50 m.p.h. to 100 plus m.p.h., depending on the driver’s age, experience and equipment variables. The weekend schedule is usually arranged so that racers can run the same equipment on both days of the event.

Karting is an excellent training for drivers wanting to pursue higher forms of racing as a career and many kart racers have gone on to professional car racing such as SCCA, Indycar, NASCAR, and Formula 1. In fact when watching F1 on television you will often hear Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton refer to their days of karting with great fondness. While we love that about karting, the primary emphasis of K.A.R.T. is on the camaraderie and family atmosphere of kart racing.
