When it comes to getting a true Chicago go-karting experience, look no further than Chicago Race Factory. Our quarter-mile go-kart track offers challenging switchbacks and straight-aways to get your adrenaline pumping – and our race formats were designed for maximum speed and competition!

Standard Go-Karting Format

  • Public Race Format – Fastest Lap (also available for groups
    This is the standard indoor go-kart race format at Chicago Race Factory, which gives go-kart racers of all skill levels – from novice to advanced – a chance to experience the ultimate adrenaline rush. It’s the most popular format for those groups that just want to get out and have some fun! The drivers get in the go karts in a random order and race in a timed session. The driver with the best lap wins the race. For group events, the slowest driver wins the award for “Top Turtle.”

Premium/Exclusive Go-Karting Track Formats

  • Pole Position Format (available only for groups)
    This format brings out the competitive nature in all go-kart racers, as they compete for position, not time. Pole Position format is where drivers initially race qualifying laps and are lined up according to their best lap times. The green flag drops and they’re off! Racers then compete in a main heat and the winner is determined by the racer who finishes first.
  • Team Relay Format (available only for groups)
    Team Relay consists of a briefing, warm-up laps, a team strategy session and a timed indoor go-kart race. Multiple racers make up a team driving one kart and competing against other teams. There is a required number of pit stops and driver changes. The team that completes the most laps is declared the winner. Our track marshals can customize all of the race details including strategy, color coded team signs and the coordination of pit stops.
