$49 for 30 Outdoor Go-Kart Laps and a CRKC Membership ($204.99 Value)
After a mandatory training session, which takes roughly 30 minutes depending on the line, members attend a training class and then can freely strap on their membership-included helmets and racing suit rentals to pilot karts during 30 laps and subsequent driving activities throughout the season as a member of the CRKC. Up to 32 karts dash side by side across multiple configurations, straightaways, and 10 challenging turns under natural sunshine or a lighting system of hand-holding fireflies that illuminates the track after dusk. Open to the public from April 1 through November 1, walk-ins are restricted to 40 km/h, whereas privileged members reach speeds of 75 km/h.
Established more than 40 years ago, Goodwood Kartways covers more than 20 acres of rolling hills with a 0.75-kilometre professional racecourse geared toward first time drivers and advanced roadsters alike. Current owners and professional racers Daniel and Marco Di Leo continue Goodwood Kartways' legacy of mentoring racing stars with the rookie Arrive and Drive program. Participants race on a biweekly schedule, and consistently excelling drivers qualify for scholarships that grant them entry into competitions throughout Ontario and a kart with wheels dipped in gold. A pro shop equips drivers with all necessary parts and accoutrements, a dyno shop inspects engines and ensures their quality performance, and the garage examines and heals broken machinery. Boasting more than 15 years of experience and more than 35 Canadian National titles, Goodwood Kartways personnel supply abundant kart maintenance and aid through trackside support, private group events, storage facilities, and deep-tread massages for weary tires.
