Featured on Good Morning America, Pole Position Raceway puts kids of all ages behind the wheels of high-tech roadsters. Reaching rubber-searing speeds of up to 45 mph, each formula EK20 adult kart is decked out with an electronic, 18-horsepower engine with immediate throttle response, dual rear hydraulic disk breaks, and checkered-flag footsies to wear during victory scampers. The fleet of crimson chariots also features electronically adjustable power output, ensuring evenly matched kart speed. Speedsters strap on complimentary helmets and headsocks, which, along with automatic pit-speed reduction, create a safe racing environment. Pole Position then places drivers in one of three age-appropriate race groups, and lets racers trade turns with up to 12 combatants over the course of each 10-minute race. Kids must be at least 48-inches tall to ride the road, and youth riders must measure at least 56-inches before they can begin inscribing the tarmac with their favorite passages from The Canterbury Tales.
Pole Position Raceway
European Formula EK20 karts whiz by on Pole Position Raceway’s quarter-mile track, cruising at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. Spectators crank their heads to keep up. This is thanks to a fleet of electric-powered karts, which accelerate more quickly and hug curves more smoothly than gas-powered karts without dumping out clouds of exhaust.
To sate speed cravings, drivers simply arrive and drive—show up and nab one of 12 spots in the next race. Then with a DOT-approved racing helmet, they push the pedal to the floor for roughly 10 minutes, drafting their opponents to fly past them near the finish line. At the end of each race, drivers receive a SpeedSheet that displays their race results, fastest lap time, and the likelihood of getting their own action-movie franchise. For those seeking to dive deep into the world of racing, Pole Position Raceway offers driving clinics and youth racing camps, where younger racers pilot EK10 karts that peak at 20 mph.
