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.

This is a great family friendly go cart place. The carts are fast and electric so you don't smell like exhaust when you leave

Went here with our 10 year old son on a Friday night. The place was busy. We had to wait over an hour to race. I'm happy that there were some junior racers as this was our son's first time to go kart. The course was fun and we had an overall great time. It was nice that they had... More

This was definitely on our list of top things to do in Tampa/clearwater. HIGHLY recommend for both kids and adults. the prices are fairly inexpensive and the thrill makes it SO worth it. 5/5 for some fast paced fun

Nice facility and authentic racing carts. The girls selling the tickets were happy to help. The young men running the carts seemed annoyed to help the customers but did their required job, not a spoiler but worth noting. Racing the carts is a hoot.

First time carting, got the three race package. First race only got 13 out of 16 laps. Last race had several mechanical issues with other carts. Race was stopped twice, one time a cart had to be changed out. Fun when it worked, but a little disappointing.

If you like go cart racing, you will like this track. It's a timed track so it doesn't matter where in line you start the racing. There is a height restriction of 52" because of the speed of the carts, but if you and your kids can ride then you won't be disappointed. Only thing that I didn't really like... More

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
