High Caliber Karting and Entertainment – Lansing’s Premier Indoor Electric Go Karts
Lansing go karting would be a sad world without High Caliber Karting. The modern indoor electric go kart is a piece of machinery that needs to be cherished.
Featuring imported Italian electric go karts High Caliber Karting has one of the best go karting experiences around. The best part is these go karts are not tuned down. You will be pushing 50mph!
Each race is six minutes. Certainly, while you are out there you are racing against one another. But be aware the winner is the person with the fastest lap time. Racing is supposed to be fun so try not to let your inner competitor get the best of you.
The High-Speed Go Karts are just the beginning of the fun at High Caliber Karting. They also feature Combat Karting and Handicapable Go-Kart Racing.
Combat Karting is like nothing you have ever raced before. It’s like a fighter jet on four wheels combined with Mario Kart! Remember in Mario Kart where you could drive through the blocks and pick up power ups? Check out this promo!
Handicapable Go Karting – Go Kart racing for the Handicap
I think this is the coolest feature yet. Go kart racing is such a thrill. Going as fast as possible and chasing down the kart in front of you. Even the feeling of being chased down is a thrill.
Due to the layout of a go kart using your arms and legs in unison it leaves some people out. I applaud High Caliber Karting for spending the extra time, money and effort on including everyone in the fun.

East Lansing Kart Track – Family Go Kart Racing
I can remember when I was 9 or 10 years old, and we were racing purple plate in the WKA Gold Cup Series. At the time it was the premier 4 cycle national series. We traveled from Maryland to East Lansing Michigan to race.
For some reason as a really young kid what I remember the most was the food we would get from the concession stands. They had really good cheeseburgers.
We had some good finishes but that beside the point. What I got out of racing here were the fun family memories we made. Learning the sport and having a lot of fun.
East Lansing Kart Track is a place to start your racing journey. Yes, you could go to a rental place and have fun for a couple hours. But investing in a go kart and racing with your family is priceless.
Take a trip out to East Lansing and watch some races. Talk to the folks there and learn some more.

Shepard’s Indoor Speedway – Indoor Old School Go Karts

Hop into one of the full-bodied go karts for some old school indoor go kart racing. Check out some of the awesome action below!
4. Capitol Quarter Midgets
Racing on Saturdays and Sundays from April Until October
Capitol Quarter Midgets – The Next Step from Go Karts
A Quarter Midget may seem like a strange name for a go kart. A go kart and quarter midget and two very different animals.
One of the main differences is the suspension. Being that a go kart does not have one a Quarter Midget is slightly more sophisticated. Requiring more skill behind the wheel and the in the pits.
A quarter midget is a great transition from a go kart to the next level of racing. By all means it is not necessary.
A quarter midget is usually driven by younger kids learning how to race. Watching those little wheel women and men out there is a lot of fun. They will surprise you with some of the sneaky passes and moves they make on the track.
Stop out and make it a family event. You never know, it might be you out there one day!

Funtyme Adventure Parks – Outdoor Go Kart Racing
Funtyme Adventure Parks offers some fun outdoor gas go kart to cruise around for a good weekend activity. The track is a figure 8 style track wit slight banking through the corners.
Banked corners are really fun in go kart racing. You can hug the bottom and feel the G forces suck you into the seat. The added downforce helps you carry more spend to power by the competition.
Another great feature of Funtyme are the other activities they offer. Featuring Adventure Golf, Batting Cages, Driving Range, and an Arcade.
Go Karting only cost 4-6 dollars which is a steal. Even if these go karts are not the fastest in the Lansing area, they will still be a blast!
