    I’m 64 and have had a lot of years experience in car racing. Recently been doing indoor walkins at Skykart and a few sessions up at Pacific. Doing awful,lol, wondering if the racing class would work for me despite my decrepitude. Don’t think I’d want to be out on the track with 5 yr olds, too embarrassing and weird. Do you have a class for old tools like myself? Don’t have a kart but finding it amazingly fun. Just want to do better. Eric

    I am 21 years old and want to try and enter into the wolrd of racing since that and cars is what I spend most of my time thinking about. I was wondering if the two hour sessions you offer in the mornings are a good way for me to get started in learning race driving skills?

    • Yes, the two hour lesson is more of an in depth lesson on the racing line and breaking points which would fit perfect for someone your age. I suggest you call and schedule an appointment with the girls in the main office at 503/266-7287

    Hey there,

    I’m active duty Army and I’m coming home to Oregon in June. I want to start racing Karts when I get there. I’ve always been into racing and have done a good deal of autocross in my Honda S2000. However I want to start working my way up into formula 500 or Spec Racer ford, and I know the best way to do that is to hone my skills in Karting.

    I’m 21 years old, and I hold a valid Oregon Drivers License.

    Please give me a call at 541-441-3961, or email me back.

    Thank you!

    Do you have any programs for my 5-year old? I’m interested in getting him involved in driving/racing – it’s all he thinks about 24/7 …

    • Yes, we have a driving school we recommend for kids that age so they can try it out and see just how interested they are before you spend the money. It’s a one on one class with an instructor scheduled weekday mornings before we open so they get the track to themselves. Our one hour lessons are $99.00 and you get 2 on-track sessions, and our Intro to Karting class (2 hr.) is $159.00 and includes 5 on-track sessions and a license. To schedule a class just give us a call at 503-266-7287 and we will find a day that works for you!

    Do you have any classes for children? (ages 7 to 8 years old)

    • Yes, we have one on one class available by appointment only. We offer two options for that age. A 1-hour lessons for $99 including two 15 minute on track sessions. Or a 2-hour lesson for $159 and this one gets you 5 on-track sessions.

    I recently purchased a six speed shifter kart and I am not too familiar with how to operate it, I was wondering if the individual driving and tuning lesson would teach me a little bit about it help me become more confident in it. Also, is there any way I could do the individual lesson with a friend?


    • admin

      Yes, that is exactly what the individual lessons are designed for, helping you become more comfortable with your equipment as well as your driving. We can do the lesson with as many people as you request, we just need to know ahead of time so we can book an instructor suitable for all the requirements. Thank you!
