Safety is paramount at VLK and ensuring safety, fairness and fun for all are also main objectives. The rules are implemented to help with creating an environment that is not only safe, but fun!
Rules at Victory Lane Indoor Karting
1. Your helmet should be on and the strap should be buckled.
2. Your track official will assign a kart and make adjustments to your seat and pedals if necessary.
3. After leaving the pit apply the brakes to get the feel. They are different from your automobile brakes.
4. Take the first lap slow, the clock has not started, do not race. Increase speed as you feel comfortable, but without bumping another kart or hitting the wall. The kart has no governor and we do not use electronic controls.
5. This is a non-contact sport. These are not bumper karts. If you are seen hitting another kart or the barrier system (intentionally or not), you will be given a warning with a black flag. If you get two black flags, you will be removed from the track. We do not give refunds for reckless driving.
6. Never slow down or stop on the track to wait for a friend as this can create a dangerous situation, for which you will be black-flagged.
