Grand Prix Kartways
Grand Prix Kartways 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, with a driver’s VIP pass, or a spectator ticket. Drivers will be given a racing balaclava to wear under the helmets provided. Although the balaclavas are required for hygienic purposes, it is an example of the uniqueness of the GPK experience. To complete the thrill, racing uniforms and gloves are available for rental or purchase, and every driver will be presented with a comprehensive diagnostic of the race results. 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. Weekly races and tournaments will be held for various age groups, on the track, and in the video zone, with trophies and prizes celebrating the champions. The retail merchandise store offers racing caps, shirts, jackets, and custom helmets, along with rare model cars. The track-side Café and VIP Lounge, welcomes guests to stay and enjoy live racing and other sporting events on big screen TV’s, and will also provide dining facilities for family or corporate parties. Our arcade zone features billiard tables, foozeball, air hockey, video games, and an 8-lane slot car track, providing hours of fun. GPK is an integral part of Parc Downsview Park, providing various activities that draw large numbers of visitors, and promotes healthy and safe family experiences, all in an environmentally friendly fashion. Utilizing state-of-the-art equipment and services, in a consistent race-themed experience, it is sure to exhilarate consumers and give great value for their money.
