Experience the unexpected. Whether its a date night, birthday party, family gathering, night out with friends, or a corporate event, we bring go karting to a totally new level. Our karts are not like electric ones you see at the mall or kiddy karts you drove as a kid. These things pull G's in the corners and carry awesome speed in the straight-a-ways. Our course is challenging and safe for the beginners and experts alike.
The adult karts are available for drivers 13 years of age and older. Karts have fully adjustable seats and pedals that fit most drivers from 48” to 78” that weigh less then 325 lbs. We also have karts for juniors ages 8-12. We took the governors off our adult Sodi GT5 karts that feature a 6.5 hp engine making them capable of speeds up to 50mph. This means you are able to drive to the fullest of your ability and we won't control your speeds like the other tracks.
There is no need for prior experience, we will provide you with everything you need for your first time and every time at the track. Races at PVIK last 8 minutes and drivers get between 17-25 laps per race when running our exciting indoor track. Our most popular package is the 3 race special where drivers should expect to be at the track for a little over an hour on slower days, and up to 2 hours on busier days. After finishing a race, drivers can expect a 10 to 15 min break between heats to cool down unless a shorter break is requested at booking.
If it's your first time, register on one of our kiosk. Then proceed to the front desk to book your races.
Watch our 7 minute video explaining how a race is ran, kart operation, important rules and safety procedures.
Head to the equipment shelves in the track area. Find a comfortable helmet and neck brace. Remember to dress comfortably with well-secured footwear.
Enjoy racing with your friends and family. Fastest lap time wins!
Pioneer Valley Indoor Karting opened in 2012 and is the areas only locally owned and operated indoor karting track. Our location on the Northampton side of the bridge on RT 5 in West Hatfield serves customers all over Western and Central Massachusetts, Southern Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and New York. Hatfield to some might seem far but we are only 10 minutes from UMASS Amherst near Hadley, 25 minutes from I91 exit 7 in Springfield, 20 minutes from the VT border. PVIK is visible from Interstate 91 which means no pesky lights or traffic to worry about. All skill levels are welcome, and kids as young as 8 can race alone on the track safely. We even allow mom and dad to race one of our adult karts in the same heat as their kids! We just ask parents to give kids the right-of-way. All other adults are placed in separate adult heats.
