Intro to Go-Karting

The first annual kids "Intro to Go-Karting" event will be taking place Saturday April 30th at Stockholm Motorsports Park in Cokato (MN).

This is a good opportunity to find out if you child shows the desire and interest it takes to become a Go-Kart racer.   They will be given an expert introduction to the sport and the Karts and then will be taking to the track to see how they like it.

The cost for this event is only $25, and they money is refundable twords a membership to the (NRKA) Northern Region Karting Association, if you so choose.

The Stockholm Motorsports Park is an elite Go-Kart facility... its an asphalt road course track, about 6/10th of a mile, 14 turns, 26 foot wide and numerous elevation changes.  A nice mix of a speed and technical course.

This event is split into two different classes:  5-7 yr olds from 11am-1pm and 8-12 yr olds from 1:30pm-3:30pm.  Your child does not need anything special for this class, just wear jeans and tennis shoes.  Helmets and other materials are all provided.

Pre-register for the class if possible by calling (952) 442-9200 or go to

Dont forget to tell they.... You heard about it on SPEEDTALK!


A big thank you to all who participated in the 1st annual SMP Introduction to Karting event. Despite some soggy weather early, we had plenty of brave souls who fought the elements and did not let a little rain hurt them.

On Saturday July 16 we will be having another Introduction to Racing for ages 5 thru 12 years old. Based off the interest of the first one this will be quite a great event. Hopefully the weather situation will be a little more forgiving than last time. Call to sign up.

Times will be as follows:

Ages 5-7 years (10:00am until 1:00pm)

Ages 8-12 years (1:00pm to 4:00pm)
