Karting at Road America is a safe, affordable, and extremely challenging sport that takes place at the Briggs & Stratton Motorplex on select weeknight and weekend dates from May to September. The Road America Karting Club has organized competitive kart racing in a family-friendly atmosphere for over 20 years.
Competition classes are organized for participants ranging in age from adults to children 5 years and older in a variety of different engine and chassis combinations. This organization goes beyond the traditional focus of driver development by putting an emphasis on safety, sportsmanship, and fun. Events are always filled with exciting racing action and open to spectators.
