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 kart rentals 3 days a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays year round. Most of our kart rentals are run from 9am to 1pm, however many times we offer afternoon kart rentals when 9-1am is already booked with racing schools or corp/group events. We also conduct our racing schools, corporate events, and group parties on these same days and times. Availability for each driving program is strictly first come, first serve. For larger parties, our rentals can be arranged on any day of the week and all day long. We will also offer rentals on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at any time, however there is a 2 hour minimum for each participant.
No, kart rental is for ages 18 and up. However, minors can rent after graduating from our "Techniques of Karting" racing school or if the minor has previous racing experience. Moran Raceway offers 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.
