Birel N35
European Racing Karts

CKP has rental karts available to the public! Our fleet of Birel N-35 karts are great for all levels of drivers – powerful enough for the experienced driver, yet perfectly safe for novice or beginner drivers. Our 0.7-mile outdoor kart track can be run with multiple different configurations and is an absolute BLAST to put some laps on!

All safety gear is provided – just arrive and drive!*

» Simply “arrive and drive” anytime we have rental karting open (see calendar below!)

» We provide the go-kart and all required safety gear – rental helmet, neckbrace, and headsock.

» Rental Karting runs in sessions with a max # of 12 drivers. Each session is a 12-minute race around our kart track. Just choose how many sessions you want to do and get ready to hold on tight!

» Check the calendar below for days we are open. We typically run every weekend! However we may be closed for a private event, inclement weather, improvements, holiday, etc.

Due to state law, all drivers must be at least 18 years old and have a valid U.S. driver’s license.

Technically, no. Our karts are meant for adults and have adjustable pedals – meaning most can fit without a problem. However, participants around 250lbs and up may experience a tight fit in the seat.

We have complimentary rental seat pads available for customers that need an extra “boost” to reach the pedals.

No, our rental karting is “arrive and drive” with no reservations. 

Have a group of 8 or more people? Then you may reserve a private karting event for your group. More info on group rental karting events can be found by clicking here.

Closed-toed shoes are required (no Crocs).

We strongly recommend long sleeves and long pants as extra protection. 

Long hair will need to be tucked into your helmet.

When you arrive to Carolina Motorsports Park (where CKP is located), we will have a gate attendant to sign you into the park. You will be required to sign all necessary waivers, and we will direct you to the kart parking area. Then you can head to the CKP registration trailer to get checked in for your session(s)!

We run groups of up to 10-12 karts at one time.

Absolutely! We just ask that you follow our COVID-19 guidelines, which can be found here.

For groups of 8 or more, we offer group packages that give you private use of the track. Click here for more info on group/corporate events.
