Utah's Largest Go Karting Track

Do you like to go fast? Do you like to have fun? The outdoor go kart track at Utah Motorsports Campus is the best place in Utah to do both! Our professional track is HUGE with a challenging course that thousands of Utahns have already enjoyed for birthdays, corporate events, dates, races and more! Go-kart racing is the most affordable form of auto racing and is designed for the fun and enjoyment of individuals and entire families.

The Utah Go Kart Track offers a world-class racing facility with a paved pit area, racing clubhouse, numerous track configurations and a brand-new fleet of Righetti karts that are fast fun for everyone and feature a top speed of 40-50 miles per hour.  

There are some restrictions involved for our younger Utah Go Kart Track drivers. Drivers of our rental karts must be at least 8 years old and 52 inches tall. Also, any rental kart driver younger than 18 must have a signed parental waiver on file before driving. These are available here; it’s advisable to download and fill this form out before coming to the track. 

In addition to having the best Utah Go Kart Track, UMC also offers a bank of world-class racing simulators that are fun and educational for both individuals and groups. We also have a fleet of ATVs that are available to rent for group/corporate events on our Off-Road Course.

The Utah Kart Championship races also take place at UMC. This is Utah’s only sprint kart series! The season kicks off in March and runs through October with 13 championship rounds for kids from age 4 to 74. Since the track opened in 2006, many drivers have graduated from the Utah Kart Championship and have gone on to enjoy successful professional racing careers.

So, whether you want to take the first steps toward a professional racing career or you just want to have some fast, competitive fun with friends or a group at an outstanding facility, Utah Motorsports Campus invites you to satisfy your need for speed at the very best Outdoor Go-Kart Track!

Daytona 500, 2008

I’m going to go out on the proverbial branch and predict an unnatural phenomenon to occur this weekend.

This Sunday, NASCAR will drop the green flag on the 59th running of the legendary Daytona 500. At or near that time, I predict that there will be unnatural warming and a distinct hum heard in three places – one in Mooresville, N.C., and two near Daytona Beach, Fla.

So, this week’s news that American Honda is returning to pro motorcycle road racing by backing Danny Walker’s Team Genuine Broaster Chicken Honda in MotoAmerica’s Superbike class team with rider Jake Gagne is a very welcome development.
