During your visit, everyone will check in and have to either sign a waiver, or have one signed by a parent or legal guardian (downloadable link located at top right of page). After check in all new customers will watch a brief safety video so that everyone understands the rules of our track. They will then strap on one of our helmets and a neck brace and hop into a kart. Track officials will always be on the track keeping your races safe and running smoothly.
PVIK is proud to be the only track in Massachusetts that allows juniors (8-17) drive high speed pro karts on a daily basis without a large training fee. Because of that we are held to a high standard of safety. Please before coming to the track check out our “Junior Karting page” on our web site for further information and to see if anything on the page will apply to you or your group.

Whether you’re racing in the league or watching, signing up for an Endurance race or just hanging out with your friends PVIK tries to never disappoint.
One of the major goals of Owner Ryan Bouvier was to be able to give back to the community. “I have always been thankful for things that were given to me, now I have a chance to give back.”-R.Bouvier PVIK has helped raise over $200,000 since opening in 2012 through donations to various foundation and charity events hosted at PVIK’S Track! We would like to further our community outreach for the future by hosting fund raising events that benefit a cause. We encourage charities to keep us in mind when looking for a venue to have their next fundraising event!
