Central Indiana provides some excellent karting opportunities on both European-style
indoor karting courses and some good outdoor courses. You will find they cater to
corporate groups, private parties and individual racing. They all provide helmets, or you can
bring your own. You should give them a call before going in case someone has the track
rented out or leagues are going on. They are generally open around 11a-11p daily. The
indoor courses may offer speedometers and printouts. You must be 18 to drive at these
places. (There are other go-kart places that kids can go in the city, listed further down on
Fastimes Indoor Karting
Located: 3455 Harper Rd (96th Street and Keystone Avenue, next to Woodland Bowl)
Since: May 2001
Speed: 40+ mph.
Price: $18 for 8 minute session
Course Length: 900 feet
Notes: 9 h.p. Belguim karts. Course covers two floors. These karts are the safest I've seen,
with roll bars, seat belts and large all-round bumpers. The track is wide and fun. Lap times
vary from 20-29 seconds generally. Good traction, which means, to me, less skill required,
but probably less frustrating for the beginner, however, whether from smacking the wall or
just trying to hold on to these fast sticky karts, the driver may take more of a pounding than
at the other indoor tracks, hence more endurance required. (Update: We've since lost the
other two indoor tracks that I've been to that had slick tracks.)
