Go-Kart drivers who race at the Canadian Mini Indy Go-Kart Racing track, simply love it and cannot get enough. The thrill of wheel to wheel racing at speeds upwards of 80km/h, have our customers coming back week after week.
Are you unsure if go-kart racing is for you? Go-kart racing at the Canadian Mini Indy is for everyone from the ages of 8 to 75. The Canadian Mini Indy also goes to extra lenghts at every race event to break down drivers into correct age and weight categories, to keep the racing close and fair.
But don't just take our work for it, see what our customers have to say about go-kart racing at the Canadian Mini Indy.
Canadian Mini-Indy is THE place to race in Southern Ontario. Trevor Wickens and his team of mechanics do an incredible job of preparing fast karts (including a brand new fleet of cars for 2017) that are a blast to drive in both dry and wet conditions! The marshals keep the events running smoothly, and the safety team is always there to help you out if you have an off-track excursion. Danielle and the front office staff do an incredible job of making you feel welcome, and they speedily answer any questions you have, night and day. After running almost 80 races last year as a rookie, I must say that I found each event to be very fun and competitive, a testimony to the caliber of drivers the facility attracts. Newcomers need not fear -- you'll always find someone of a similar skill level to battle wheel-to-wheel. Kart racing is a family sport, and one of the most enjoyable aspects of the Canadian Mini-Indy is seeing generations of racers out on the track. The facility welcomes everyone -- from 7 to 70+ -- and it's really neat to see kids and their parents suited up and ready to race. The camaraderie of the Canadian Mini-Indy, to me, is one of the best aspects of this facility. I've met so many awesome people at the track -- staff and fellow racers -- and forged many new friendships. Just hanging out in the pits and waiting to hit the track is a fun part of race day. Kudos to the Canadian Mini-Indy for running a wicked track. I'm looking forward to the 2017 season, and I hope to see some new faces out there.
I joined this year and I've had one of the best experiences of my life. Driving creates a family attitude, we want each other to succeed and we always have smiles on our faces in between heats. Anyone thinking of doing it, register. It's so much fun. Any shape size age, it doesn't matter. Everyone is welcome!
Great experience at the boot camp. We were on track a lot and the coaching helped a great deal. The carts run well and they are all the same speed so the races are fair. Staff was also good, considering they probably have to explain the same thing for the thousandth time they were enthusiastic and gave good pointers and tips. Will definitely come back! Highly recommend to anyone who is into any type of racing. We did both the junior and the adult campa and they were both equally good.
Have you ever wanted to race but feel like it’s too expensive? The arrive and drive program at Canadian Mini Indy is for you! Trevor and Danielle run a fantastic and affordable series with fast, responsive, well maintained karts. You’ll be sure to have fun every time you come out. The competition is fantastic and in between sessions hang out with fellow minded people and talk racing. There’s multiple schedules to race on making it easy to find one that works for your schedule. Do yourself a favor and sign up, you won’t regret it.
My son attended a two day camp here on July 9-10 2019 that he thoroughly enjoyed. I was especially impressed with the driver coaches and how they handled difficult situations between the the kids in the camp. Great Job and we look forward to returning for upcoming practices, races and next year for camp.
Think you're a great driver? Are you sure it's not just your car doing all the work?? Come out and let's see what you've got! The staff and management are true pros who will give you everything you need to have a blast every time. You won't find a better bang for for buck anywhere else. You're always saying to your friends" I could do that, easy". Well... bring it, I'll be waiting.
If you think you're too old (or too fat) to enjoy a night at the track you are so wrong. Lots of great racing with the other older guys and a great organization running the place. After many years enjoying Tuesday nights at the track one of the few regrets of moving out of town is that I am no longer able to experience that adrenaline rush. Try it...they'll make you feel welcome and you won't regret it.
Very well-run programs for beginners wanting to try karting out, to seasoned drivers who are looking for good advice to up their game. The track gets better every year, and the friendly atmosphere is top-notch. You will not be disappointed!
a year ago We accidentally found Canadian Mini Indy this summer, and are so glad we did. My son loves the racing, and the friends he's found there. The regular season races and the trophy race events are so much family fun. As parents we have loved how organized, and supportive the staff are. How well maintained the carts are, and how much of a community there is at the track. I recommend Canadian Mini Indy to everyone who will listen. I see many years of racing in our family's future.
If you have ever thought about racing in any capacity, this is a great place to go beyond thinking and start doing. The karts are fast and the speed challenges what you think should be easy. The adrenalin at the end of a first race shows you what is reality and what you can start to accomplish with practice and racing against new and experienced karters. This was my first season racing and I thought it would be so easy, but I was wrong! These karts are not your family weekend puttering around the track type, but really the type that put you in a mind process to advance to the next level if you are so inclined. Just remember that Lewis Hamilton started out in karting and it gives you a better appreciation for the work involved to race these vehicles. I loved the fun and reasonable cost as well as the walkaway factor that is part of the membership and race day fees. You don't have to buy a kart, maintain it or put any fuel in it, just arrive with appropriate race gear and go. Stop thinking about this, do it!!
My son and I have been coming to The Canadian Mini Indy for the Rookie Series for the past 2 seasons and have had a great time. We had no karting experience and all the staff made it very easy to jump right in and have a great time. If you are a bit nervous about the idea of coming of to race all I can say is come out and give it a try, its a great place to come out and meet some people and just have a good time.
Easily one of the best competitive karting outfits in Southern Ontario. Having raced multiple events, including a 6 hour enduro here, I feel that their organizational ability, prioritization of safety, marshalling and attention to the maintenance of both karts and facilities is exemplary. WELL worth the drive from the GTA.
Canadian Mini Indy is a fabulous group to exercise and express the inner motor car racer within you. They make it pretty easy to come to the track, join their Rookie series, and race with equipment already on-site. Their information upfront is a bit like navigating a New York subway map, however their admin staff is friendly and very helpful in figuring out your options to just get on track and race. The carts are fast enough to give any rookie the thrill of speed and satisfy your desire to race in a friendly environment.
Just finished the 2 day camp and had a great experience. Complements to Terry, who was very informative and kept it fun, as did all other staff. Definitely a great starting point for anyone who has any interest in racing. I'll be back out for more!
My son started to race in the "arrive and drive" championship in the summer of 2018 and he loved it ...we like that we can be included in a championship and he can have a target to achieve. The karts are way faster than your regular "go-kart" tracks in GTA. The day at the track looks like a f1 weekend compressed in one morning , practice, quali, prerace and final race. There are a lot of kids of his age sharing the same passion... It is our main activity for the weekend ... staff is very nice and helpful to accomodate your skill .... strongly recommended
My son started the arrive and drive program here over the summer and really loved it. Lots of times to come practice and race on the weekdays and weekends. They provide you with everything you need, you just need to show up and have fun!
We had the pleasure of enrolling our two grandson's in the 2 Day Race Experience program. They are ages 11 & 13 and had an amazing time. The staff and facilities are top notch and the karts are fast. They learned a lot about kart racing. Excellent safety instructions and explanation of proper procedure etc. before going near the track. All and all a great experience and we highly recommend Canadian Mini Indy.
Super organized, well trained staff, even during the pandemic as they made sure you remained safe during time spent. Super fun Go-Karting experience, make sure to join the rookie series as you would not regret it. Being right near the airport, you got to enjoy the view of planes flying low right above your head. Don't forget to bring sunscreen!
Ladies, you have to try this! What a thrill !! After watching my husband and son for most of the season in Arrive and Drive they encouraged me to give it a whirl at a Friends and Family race day... nervous, but excited to see what all the hullabaloo was about, I was the sole female in my group of experienced drivers. Although my first ever attempt at driving these fast karts, I even made a successful pass ! (Nor did I come in last either lol!) This group of seasoned racers were courteous and shook my hand after the final and asked if I had fun, which I did! I can now really appreciate the thrill my son gets racing karts! Great staff, positive encouragement by all, in a competitive yet friendly environment. Thanks for a great afternoon of racing Canadian Mini Indy!
My boys (age 8 and 10) are huge Formula One fans and were so excited to join the Rookie Karting league. The staff are wonderful. The young men in the pits are so helpful and encouraging. This year has been a wonderful experience for the boys. They have loved every second in the karts.
