Have you ever wanted to try Mario Kart in real life? Well now you can... sort of. In Bowmanville, Ontario, there's an incredible kart track that puts all others to shame.
Mosport Kartways specializes in professionally-run amateur races involving world champion intrepid racing karts that are capable of speeds up to 75 km per hour. They provide everything you need to become a racing all-star, including training, licensing, track time and even your own approved racing helmet. While there may not be any Super Stars to pick up or slippery bananas to throw at other drivers, Mosport Kartways offers an elevated karting experience that you just can't get at a carnival or theme park.
Although the company only offers competitive kart racing programs and does not facilitate casual rentals, it is still worth the experience. Membership costs are as follows:
- Annual Membership: $99.99 – Drivers MUST be members to use high performance karts.
- Annual Photo Racing Licence: $10.00 – Drivers MUST provide licence on all race days.
- Event Entry Fee (Pit Pass): $60.00 – Includes everything you need to go racing.
- Mandatory Neck Support Brace: $39.99 – Mandatory for all on track activities.
Racing season officially runs from April to October, rain or shine. The Event Entry Free listed above includes 3 open practice sessions, a 5 minute qualifying session, and an eight lap race.
