I raced here with 4 coworkers/friends and had a great time! The karts are Honda powered which are pretty quick and nimble. We all bought the 3 race package, each time we had a different winner. The karts are all very close in speed and handling which always makes for great racing and great war stories.

Went on a date night last Saturday. Got there a little after 9 PM. It looked busy, we noticed a group came in from the track to complain about the Karts brakes. They had their own helmets and no head socks. League participants or family/friends of the staff. We get called outside. Staff started the race without running down track... More

Holy smokes! When i read they go up to 50 mph i was skeptical. Once you get in and start going around the track though you realize these karts can fly! Super super fun any teenager or even adult will love this place!

The place is still relatively new so it had its hiccups but me and 2 buddies went yesterday and had a blast. Everybody was very helpful with trying to improve your abilities. As well as letting a guy know he had a flat tire on his vehicle he drove to the place. While we were talking to the owner he... More

Well I love go carts, but damn the track is F-in Rough AF! It was not really as enjoyable as it should have been, because of the asphalt conditions. Honestly I had fun anyway but was disappointed at the same time. If the track was smooth I guarantee I would have spent more time and money there. The owner and... More

Hubby and I decided to try something different while in Florida. He absolutely loved it and was zipping around the track at a pretty good pace. Me on the other hand was a little more cautious. We did the $20.00 package which gave us 10 minutes on the track. It was just the two of us on the track which... More

Our family of four arrived on Friday just before noon and had the place to ourselves. We raced each other and had the time of our lives trying to beat each other to the checkered flag. By the third race our 12 yr old was racing just as fast as the rest of us. We all left with big smiles... More

My son is learning to drive a go kart and the staff at Pro Karting Experience is extremely generous with their knowledge. He's already moved up to the fastest karts and is breaking new personal best records every time he goes out. They keep their karts tuned up for the best performance and the challenging track is a lot of... More

While I am not a go-kart connoisseur, I think this place may be one of St. Pete's best kept need-for-speed activity secrets. The track has a fun configuration and is well maintained, as are the karts. They go fast and are very heavy so you don't need to worry about flipping them. The night we were there we did not...
