If you’re looking for great ways to have fun this summer, you may want to check out the recently-opened “Kartplex” go-kart track at the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky. It may not be the same as racing an actual Corvette, but we’re sure it’s still a blast.
Pricing at the Kartplex is $20 for an 8-minute session, though it also offers private sessions for endurance races, karting parties, or full kart-track rentals. The endurance race includes a 20-minute practice with 60 minutes of non-stop competition, involving anywhere from 18 to 48 people split into teams of 4 or 5 drivers. Pricing for the endurance race is $50 per person with a $1,000 minimum, and that includes bottled water; hydration is crucial in racing.
Karting parties at the Kartplex include an 8-minute practice session, 8-minute qualifier, and an 8-minute race. The parties are a great fit for 10 to 24 people, allowing up to 8 drivers to race at a time. Pricing is $50 per person (also includes bottled water).
If you have a party of more than 48 people, then you’ll want to do a full kart-track rental, which is priced at $1,200. The park states that the event will have an average of 48 people racing per hour, which breaks down to about $25 per hour of racing for each participant.
In order to drive at the Kartplex, you must be at least 5-feet tall or hold a valid driver’s license if the height requirement is not met. Normal business hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 1pm to 7pm, and 1pm to 6pm on Sundays.
