Tampa Bay Grand Prix is a unique indoor go karting facility with two locations in the Tampa Bay area. Locations are in Sabal Park in Tampa and the Ulmerton area in Clearwater/St Petersburg. Come and race with our electric Italian pro-karts that reach speeds of up to 50 mph! Our tracks are designed for speed and challenge. The Tampa location has two tracks with two completely different layouts. Compete against friends, family, and other racing enthusiasts. Our facilities use the latest and safest equipment and technology. As every race ends, you will have your own personal race results. Even as you are racing, you will be able to view your lap times from a projector screen located right on the track. Tampa Bay Grand Prix welcomes walk-in racers 7 days a week, and we also take reservations for corporate events, birthdays, and private parties. We have private rooms available for your special event. Enjoy our comfortable lounge area equipped with flat-screens for your viewing pleasure, and free Wi-Fi.

My son got the 3 ride package and thoroughly enjoyed himself even though It took over 2 hours to do the 3 rides but it was worth it. If you are in a hurry, do not do all 3 rides since the adult rides are alternated with the kids rides. I was misinformed on how long we would be there... More

First time at go carting and I am 70. Went with grandson 15 and had wonderful time. New electric carts, and they can move. Staff fantastic, with safety most important. Place got busier as day went but still no more than 8 cars on track. Very impressed with print outs for each race to see how you did. Will certainly... More

My son and I visited. We enjoyed the races. The cars were having some issues. It took some time between races. The cars were fast some of the other drivers. We're having trouble in the turns.

Fun for the entire family. Brings out that inner kid in us all. We took the entire family there for an outing and had a blast. The staff was friendly and made us all feel comfortable with the experience. We will definitely return.

On a night where my wife and I had someone to watch our daughter, we decided to take our night to Tampa Bay Grand Prix for something fun and different to do. We have had a blast racing go karts at other venues in our hometown, so we thought this would be great. After some research we went for it... More

Thank you for your feedback. To better explain our $5 annual membership, this is required as it gives customers access to use of the karts, helmets, head socks, and all other amenities at both of our locations for one year. This is similar to a gym membership, which is required. For personal items, it is always recommended to leave them... More

While my wife and daughter were shopping, we drove out to the go-kart racing center. Easy to find, lots of parking. You do an online sign in and must purchase a racing license. Good I suppose if you come back a few times. We paid our track fee and my son and I went onto the track after some quick... More

Cars & Coffee meet up at Tampa Bay Grand Prix the 2nd Sat. morning of each month. At least 50 domestic & import cars. All cars participating in the meet up receive 1 free admission to race the go-carts. There is complimentary coffee and pastries for all guests.

But an expensive one for only 10 minutes. They do have new carts, but one broke down during our race, so we had to sit for 10 minutes while they got it off the track. They should have something for new drivers, these kids come in and bump you out of the way, ones that have done it more than... More

This was the place to bring your friends, to play in the arcade play mini golf and ride the go karts. We always used to pray not to get the crappy kart. Its kind of expensive though. A lot of my friends had birthdays there. They also have paintball, trampoline, and baseball practice. Its almost a small amusement park.
