The Karting Experience

The 'experience' gives you the opportunity to drive high performance karts on a race course, running against the clock in a time trial format. Richard Petty Driving Experience for Business offers this exciting program at multiple locations, for groups of any size. Just as with our Driving and Ride-Along programs, High Performance Karting (HPK) is a mobile based, self contained program and can be utilized as a marketing display, team building event or incentive program.

Program Details

At the start of the High Performance Karting Experience you will receive brief instructions and then get fitted for a helmet and driving suit. Our HPK programs are highly customizable with options such as practice sessions, qualifying sessions, heat and feature races and endurance racing. As an example, our HPK Grand Prix is a multi-tiered race format that is designed to challenge your driving skills in a high-action real race environment. You will compete against other drivers in a practice and qualifying format to compete for the pole position. All participants will then advance to semi-final heat races and compete head-to-head for a chance to compete in the final race and your spot in Victory Lane!
