Racer X

Summit Point Kart is far different from the go-kart tracks you may have tried in amusement parks...

Based on the European model for training apprentice race car drivers, SPK provides an intense, thrilling, challenging driving experience that will stretch every driver’s limits and improve each driver’s skill.

SPK is dedicated to helping drivers approach or achieve the experience of “flow” through competitive driving. Our goal is to improve driving skill and help our visitors push their personal limits and discover their potential through high-performance Karts, a meticulously designed track, and expert, individualized support. Our larger goal is for drivers to experience a larger sense of control and growth on the track that they can translate to many other areas of their lives.

It is essential that SPK participants understand that driving our track is not easy, and that understanding and obeying the rules is absolutely necessary.

Those who are willing to make the effort will find that SPK provides a unique, peak experience that will teach you as much about yourself as about driving fast.

SPK IS:

  1. dedicated to finding and fostering racing talent — every component of SPK is designed to develop racers from their first ride to their career in motor sports;
  2. high speed, wheel to wheel racing with the risk of injury or death.

SPK IS NOT:

  1. an amusement park ride;
  2. run like most other race tracks — even if you are a veteran racer, please take the time to understand how things are done at SPK;
  3. for drivers who ignore or disobey the rules.

We essentially only offer one thing — Racing.

65 mph on a ½ mile track surrounded by other racers who understand what racing with integrity really means. On any given weekend there is quite simply no place I’d rather be.
