Adult Questions & Answers
Where are you located?
On the Washington Circuit at Summit Point Motorsports Park, Summit Point, WV. Visit our Contact Us page for directions.
How does this work?
SPK creates “Arrive and Drive Excitement” by providing everything you need. (Kart, Helmet, Driving Suit, safety briefing, and an outdoor race track). You provide photo ID, Closed toe shoes, and $25. Simple.
Can I bring my own gear?
Yes. SPK may disapprove personal equipment is deemed unsafe.
How long is a session?
A session is 11 minutes long. This works out to about 10 laps depending on how fast you are.
Do you have to be a member?
No, but the best deal is to become a member. Non-members can only pay full price for Karting and do not have access to special events. Non-members pay $25 per session. Members can pay as little as $10 when buying in bulk. Members are also welcome to join our Karting league with no experience necessary.
For $40 you get an SPK card, a t-shirt, one karting credit, and discount pricing for a full year. Many programs at SPK require membership. Special packages also require Membership.
What is a credit?
Members purchase 'credits' to use for karting. One credit is good for one “session” of Karting. Credit cost varies from $23 to as little as $10 each when purchased in bulk. Much like shopping at Costco or other wholesale stores.
Are credits transferable to other members?
Do you offer all day Karting?
Yes. We offer 'KTP' ( Kart 'Til you Puke ). This is nearly unlimited Karting for $120. Membership is required. This is available during Arrive and Drive hours. This program is subject to change and availability. This is available for purchase as a gift and is very popular.
I want to bring out a group, how many do I need?
SPK can accomodate groups/partys/events from 8 to 100+. We offer private rentals and group reservations. Reservations outside normal hours require a minimum 8 participants. Reservations are typically for a “Mini GP” but open Karting is also available.

Typically a minimum of 30 minutes prior to an event. Example: For a 10am start, please arrive at 9:30am.
