We will do our best to accommodate drivers of most sizes, but certain minimum and maximum height restrictions apply. Generally, height can range from 4’6″ (54″) to 7′ (84″). We do not have a minimum weight standard but generally will not be able to accommodate persons in excess of 300 lbs depending on size of their frame. Our pit crew will make the final determination on a driver’s ability to safely participate on our race track. Refunds will be given if you do not meet any of the height or weight limitations.

At GRGP all racers must be 14 years of age, at least 54” tall and ready to race with closed toe shoes. CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 16 ARE REQUIRED TO BE ACCOMPANIED BY A PARENT OR GUARDIAN AT ALL TIMES.
8Do You Have Double Karts?
No, we do not offer double karts. Our facility is for young adults to adults only for racing.
9Do You Serve Alcohol?
GRGP serves beer & wine. We encourage responsible drinking by patrons AFTER they are done driving, but do not allow any driver to participate in racing if they have consumed in excess of 2 alcoholic beverages during the course of their visit. We reserve the right to breathalyze all racers. Any patron suspected of being impaired will be asked to take a breathalyzer test. Failure to take the test or the presence of alcohol in excess of .04 BAC will disqualify a patron’s participation in any racing for the remainder of their visit
10Do You Offer Reservation For Parties?
Yes. We offer reservations for groups of 8 or more that want to come in and eat & race. All reservations require a 50% deposit to reserve race times. It is highly recommended that you book a group event if you will have 8 or more. You won’t ever have to wait for a track time, and you will only race with the people in your group. Without a reservation for a large group, you will “Arrive and Drive,” or in other words, you will be scheduled on a first come, first serve basis.
11Do I Have To Have A Drivers License Or Sign A Waiver To Race?
Drivers do not have to have a driver's license. Every racer must sign a waiver. If the racer is under the age of 18 years old, a parent or guardian over 18 must sign the waiver for them. You can complete the waiver online.
12How Fast Are Your Karts?
They have the capability of going 45 mile per hour, but max speed reached in our facility is 30-35.
