Save the Date for Karting for Kids 2018

Mark August 22 on your calendars now – you won’t want to miss this fast and fun day in support of Variety Kids!

Karting for Kids is back this year, and is better than ever. From 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., you’ll be able to come out and race go-karts at the Gateway Motorsports Park - Gateway Kartplex and $10 from each of these “Arrive and Drives” will benefit Variety.

The GT-5 rental karts you’ll drive are the fastest in the St. Louis area, reaching speeds of up to 60 miles per hour. You’ll experience up to 3 g-forces during the 11-turn, half-mile road course.

So come out with your family, friends or even a group of your coworkers to speed around the track and help Variety Kids. Your donation will go towards providing medical equipment, therapy and educational and recreational programs to children with special needs throughout the St. Louis area.

Note: "Arrive and Drive" rules state that all drivers must be at least 12 years of age and 48" tall or taller. Closed toed shoes must also be worn and there is a zero-tolerance policy in regards to alcohol.
