Senior Arrive & Drive Karts

At Top Gear we use the Intrepid “Raceline” chassis for our Senior “Arrive & Drive” race karts. It is a kart specifically geared towards for A&D racing.

The Raceline is a 32mm chromoly framed race kart chassis with a few added features for use in Arrive & Drive type applications.  The karts feature heavier bumpers and pods for added protection as well as fully adjustable seat frames to suit a range of body sizes and types.

We use the Briggs and Stratton LO206 Animal racing engines with  throttle restrictors for installed for safety.   (Ask our crew to learn what it takes to qualify to drive an unrestricted kart)

Our Senior A&D machines are carefully maintained to ensure consistent performance and reliability.  To be a winner at Top Gear….it takes driving, not you luck at guessing which kart has the advantage.  There will always be small differences but we pride ourselves on FAIR racing!

At Top Gear we use the Intrepid “Speedy” as our Junior Kart. It is a kart specifically geared towards younger racers.

All versions of the Speedy model are the result of the experience gained by Intrepid and the years spent on race tracks all over the world in higher categories. Once again, as in the case of its “big brothers” it uses tubes made from unique and specific compounds of various steels. No standard steel compounds already on the market have been used, as Intrepid has created “special recipes” for the production.

What are the benefits? You achieve maximum elasticity of the material according to the different conditions of adherence and grip on the various tracks.

The material research is constantly being refined in order to get maximum performance and to obtain a vehicle that is fast regardless of the type of tire being used.

Top Gear Karting has a variety of karts that you can arrange to demo or even race. These range from a two seater kart that allows you to take your little ones or someone uncomfortable at the wheel for a few fun laps of the track to high power racing machines for those of you who want to sample some of the quickest purpose built racing machinery in the world.

The cost to demo a kart depends on the type of machine and how long you will be driving it. Some of our demo karts require that you be certified by one of our instructors in standard “Arrive & Drive” machinery in advance.
