Top Gear will be Open for group reservations in April and Drop-In Karting will start back up on Saturday May 3.

Top Gear Karting Centre in Penticton provides fast, sharp handling Race Karts on a 6 turn hybrid road course that features a high-banked "Speedway" corner, to "chicanes" our now infamous "turn 2 complex"! Only Top Gear uses real racing compound tires to provide you with cornering G's you will not experience in even the most exotic road going sports car!  We also have the expertise and experience to help you learn how to get the most out of our machinery and race track, safely!

Call us to arrange your karting sessions or group event or check our calendar (link above) to see when you can "pop by" during our scheduled "Drop-In Karting" hours!  

** Be sure to register your little racers for next summer's "Rookie Racer" camp before all the spots are spoken for.  If you have a little speed demon between the ages of 8 and 13 that would like to learn the basics of motor racing, chassis tuning, teamwork and have a lot of fun.... we have a Rookie Racer program that's just for them!  We focus on safety and expect our Rookies to learn responsibility and respect as well as car control and racecraft!

We look forward to seeing you up at the Penticton Speedway!
