Pro Karting Experience – Go Karts St Pete

Pro Karting Experience is right in the heart of St Petersburg. Only a 15-minute drive from St Pete Beach and 20 minutes from Tampa!

The Go Karts St Petersburg- Go kart PKE

PKE is a real go kart racing experience. No junky rental go karts that are worn out and beat up. These go karts are as close to the real thing as you can get.

With more added safety features than race go karts you will feel comfortable going door to door with your friends and family.

The Go Karts are built by Sodi. Sodi is an extremely reputable go kart manufacturer. These gas powered go karts can reach speeds of up to 50-mph!

They have the following safety features to ensure your safety

  • steel tubular frame
  • Polyethylene reinforced bucket seat
  • Abrasion and Shock Resistance
  • Extensive covers over the axle and engine to protect from entanglement
  • Full bumper guards 360 degrees around the go kart
  • Lowered engine mount creates a lower center of gravity to prevent flipping

Sodi has built in some awesome safety features to help protect you while you race. If go karting gets you excited check out more go karting tracks here!

The Facility – PKE

The track has multiple configurations. They can change the track up so it can be as simple as an oval or as complicated and technical as some of the most challenging road courses out there. A simple move of the impact barriers creates the different tracks. Safety is priority and these barriers are great for slowing go karts down and absorbing impacts.

As far as food and drinks go, they sell nothing more than snack foods and drinks. If you are looking for a full course meal like some indoor go kart tracks, you will have to look elsewhere.

The Go Karts at Tampa Bay Grand Prix

The go karts are made by OTL. This is an Italian go kart manufacturer and they are fantastic. The adult go karts will hit speeds of 50-mph and the juniors will reach speeds of 20-mph.

The go karts are no slouch. They are intense and fast. Indoor electric go karts are what get you around this tricky road course track. You will be sure to feel the insane amounts of torque these go karts produce!

The location is very convenient to the beach. This location is only about 30 minutes from the beach making it an easy afternoon activity after a morning on the beach.

Celebration Station – Go Karts in St Petersburg

For an awesome family fun time Celebration Station is the place to be. The go karts are not as fast as the other options in St Petersburg, but they are perfect for families.

The go karts are outdoor go karts that have the option for a passenger. This is great because we know the little ones do not like being left out.

Celebration Station is the perfect place for a birthday party. I would suggest that the kids meet the 56″ height requirement so everyone can at least drive.

Other than the go karts there are a lot of other fun activities to do.

  • Arcade Games
  • Batting Cages
  • Bumper Boats
  • Eurobungy
  • Laser Tag
  • Mini Golf
  • Playland Rides
