Go Karts Memphis, TN
Memphis is known as the Home of the Blues and the Birthplace of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Memphis has deep roots in music. People love different types of music. For a group of Memphis go karters the music might be a little different.
You may wonder why is this relevant? This is supposed to be about go karts.
An engine singing full song, an electric motor whining to max torque, tires squealing, bumpers banging, and people cheering. These are all examples of music to my ears when thinking Memphis. Racers are a different breed. Like I said there are all kinds of music out there.

Autobahn Memphis Details
Autobahn is a nationwide franchise that I have personally raced at their Autobahn Jessup location. I love racing their go karts. Autobahn Indoor Speedway is a great place to enjoy some competitive go kart racing with your family or friends.
Memphis Autobahn Go Karts
The go karts are nothing to shake a stick at. The F1-inspried go karts are manufactured in Italy. Thay are electric and super-fast. Reaching speeds up to 50 Mph! For more information about the specifics you can read more on the Memphis Autobahn web page here.
If you haven’t noticed I have used the word “racing” a lot so far to describe Memphis Autobahn. These go karts are some of the closest you will get to real racing go karts. With that being said there are some safety items you will be required to wear.
The Memphis Autobahn supplies a DOT approved helmet for you to wear. Also, you are required to wear closed toes shoes. A good safety tip for any type of go kart racing is to avoid loose fitted clothing, unsecured long hair and excessive jewelry. Long pants such as jeans (without the holes) and a light long sleeve shirt for rental go karts is fine.

Go Karts in Memphis are not as abundant as some other cities out there. There are many more go karting experiences in larger cities. Quality over quantity as my grandpa would say. Memphis’ Incredible Pizza Company is a prime example. Everything you need to have a perfect day with the family is here waiting for you.
The Go Karts
The Go Karts are electric powered. As I have covered in other go karting pages the benefits of electric go karts are torque, no emissions, and no oils or gas. They take pride in making sure the Maintenance is up to date and the go karts are kept safe.
The go karts also have a safety guard rail around the wheels, adjustable seat belts, and adjustable seats. Time is taken before each race to make sure every driver knows what to do.
