47,000 sq ft of indoor space, with high ceiling and complete clear span over the racetrack, houses the GPK racing amusement centre. GPK creates an overall fun racing experience, at a standard significantly higher than currently being offered in the Greater Toronto Area, with a consistent theme in layout, décor, and ancillary services.
From the moment you arrive, you will be made to feel as though you are participating in a real race. From race suits, racing helmets to authentic balaclavas, the uniqueness of this karting experience is unmatched. To complete the thrill, every driver will be presented with a comprehensive diagnostic of the race results measuring their performance against the field..
GPK provides the highest quality state-of-the-art electric go-karts for its racers. Not only are these race team stylized go-karts fast, they are safe, and environmentally friendly with no noxious fumes. Two types of Go-Karts will be used, both of which will be electrically charged. No fossil fuels will be required to power the karts, keeping the facilities clean, pollution free, and GPK environmentally responsible.
The Italian made EK-5N-DR and EK-Mini Go-Karts are the best available in the industry, in terms of performance and safety, including remote control shut-off, capable of stopping all karts at once for on-track protection from pile-ups.
GPK is open for "arrive-and'drive" public racing 7-days a week, with extended hours on weekends and holidays. Pre-reserved event packages are also available for groups seeking a more private custom race experience.
GPK is also the home of Mini Grid, a motorsports themed retail centre specializing in model kits, die cast model cars, children's toy sets, books, dvd's, and the largest selection in Canada of slot cars and slot car sets. It also features a one-of-a-kind six-lane 90-foot long Carrera Slot Car track, a must-try for any motorsport enthusiast.
