Moran Raceway karting DVD
.::FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is karting safe?
Yes, karting is very safe and we place a lot of emphasis on teaching proper safety techniques and accident avoidance procedures. Moran Raceway also provides the best prepared racing karts in the country. Accidents are extremely rare and Moran Raceway is one of only a few tracks in the entire country built to meet CIK/FIA specs and safety guidelines. This means that all of our safety run-off areas, curbs, fencing, and barriers are designed for maximum safety. Our staff is extremely qualified in instruction and kart preparation. All kid karts are restricted in horsepower and extra attention is spent making sure that all "Jr." students are well supervised and trained. Each participant is covered with insurance after signing a waiver. Moran Raceway is proud to have never had any injury in any of our driving programs.
We offer corporate and group events 3 days a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays year round. Most of our corporate events are 1/2 day programs from 9am to 1pm. We also conduct our racing schools and kart rentals on these same days and times. Availability for each driving program is strictly first come, first serve. For larger parties, (7 or more) our corporate and group events can be arranged on any day of the week and all day long for a more spaced out time schedule.
Typically, we handle catering arrangements for full day programs only. Moran Raceway can set up any type of catering package that is needed from sandwiches or pizza, to "white tent, gourmet food". Catering is an addtional expense to each driving program.
Yes, photography and video packages are available for all corporate, group, and racing school events. Prior notice and scheduling is required so please let our scheduling representive aware of this when booking the program.
Yes, this is not a problem as the entire facility will be exclusively reserved for each large party or just Moran Raceway karts only during all of our driving programs. This will provide a lot of open track space. We have cadet karts (generally used for 8-12 years old) and kid karts (generally used for 5-7 years old) which have reduced horsepower and smaller chassis which help kids to feel comfortable and have a fun time.
Moran Raceway provides all students with Italian manufactured Top Kart racing chassis equipped with 2 stroke powered, 100cc HPV motors. These air cooled motors put out about 20 horsepower and don't require any shifting. These karts are a world championship winning brand which all come with Tillet or Top-Kart padded seats. Our karts are immaculately maintained and are set up to fit drivers of all sizes. Click here for performance and chassis specs.
A typical corporate or group program is a half day program (9am-l pm) that teaches the basic fundamentals of karting in a fun and safe manner with an emphasis on fun and team work. These programs are custom tailored to each party depending on size, goals, etc. Corporate and group events are great for the beginner who has never driven a kart or for anybody who wants to improve their skills at Moran Raceway. The day will start off with a 30 minute classroom session where topics such as racing line, handling, braking, and general safety will be taught. Following class, there will be a walk around the track with an experienced instructor who will go into further detail on turn in points, apexes, and inside secrets of success. Next will be lead & follow sessions where each student will get a chance to follow their instructor around the track at speed in order to get a first hand view of where to go. After everybody is comfortable and ready for more action, open lapping will begin and our instructors will be supervising and taking notes from the comers while working 1 on 1 with students in debriefs. For the finale, there will be a relay race with a Le Mans style start and live pit stop driver changes followed up with a trophy ceremony. Throughout this half day program, Moran Raceway will be closed down for our school karts exclusively.

In general, the sooner the better. Availability fluctuates for many different reasons, however 1-2 weeks notice should be adequate. Don't be afraid to call even up to the day before a scheduled class because there may be room available. Tuesdays and Thursdays typically have much more room than Saturday classes. Keep in mind, that Corporate or Group events can be scheduled any day of the week year round for large parties.
You are, please keep that in mind. Crash damage is rare when participants drive responsibly and safely while respecting their fellow drivers. Off-roading of karts is the #1 cause of crash damage. All particpants will be briefed and cautioned on proper driving methods and corner locations and speeds prior to driving.
