Goodwood Kartways in its 40 plus years is a race track that has groomed Canadian heroes such as Ron Fellows, Paul Tracy and Scott Goodyear. Racers from all over Ontario, Canada and the USA have visited the historic Goodwood facility to participate in a wide variety of karting events. It is often said to be a “must have” on driver resumes.
TRAK was founded in 2008 and is dedicated to maintaining Goodwood’s years of tradition and to continue its rich history.
TRAK is committed to a focus on innovation in the sport of karting, striving to promote the sport of karting and continuing to offer a foundation upon which to help grow and develop Canada’s next motorsport stars.
Racing with TRAK is the best way of introducing yourself to the exciting world of motorsports.
From the beginner to the experienced veteran, it is a sport that involves the entire family. It teaches the humble way to enjoy a victory and continued success, as well as, overcoming defeat and moving on to the next race. It is a great way to grow as a family, a person, and as a driver.
The “go-kart” phenomenon began in the late 1950's with informal parking lot events rapidly growing into organized competition on purpose-built tracks. Since then, the sport has spread around the world, forming a true “grassroots” of motorsports.
While the “go” in the name has long since been dropped by those involved within the sport,
karting has matured to become a primary recreational activity for thousands of people annually in Ontario.
What is a kart?
They have no suspension, are about 180cm long, 125cm wide, and weigh approximately 150 lbs. minus the driver. Engines vary from 5 to over 30 horsepower, depending upon the class. Competitive karts are for track use only – never on the street or an unsafe area.
Regardless of age, experience, budget or aspirations, there is a karting class for you.
TRAK can accommodate your needs whether you are looking for a legitimate and sophisticated training ground to move into other forms of professional motorsports, or simply exploring the sport for recreational purposes.
Our formal classes begin at the novice stage (age 8) and generally run in 3-year age groupings until “senior” status is reached (age 15+). Classes are then separated by weight and equipment regulations designed to equal the playing field, while controlling the costs.
Our schedule runs from March to October and includes but is not limited to a fourteen race point’s series. Each event is organized with our primary goal of providing an enjoyable environment. Qualifying races, heat races, endurance events, even night racing are all examples of different formats that TRAK utilizes to create a challenging and unique championship for our members to enjoy.
Through our dedicated team of volunteers and generous sponsorship contributions from many different establishments, TRAK is committed to working hard at offering an affordable activity for your whole family to enjoy. The Toronto Racing Association of Karters invites you to join us for the ride of a lifetime!
