Put the pedal to the metal in a supped up go kart at Mega Race Track in Miami, Florida.

Michelle and I went go karting and it was a blast! We had heard about Miami GP Raceway, and decided to make it our Friday night date. On our way, we had a pit stop at Roberts Taco Shop in Hialeah, and then it was off to the races.

For those who don’t know, Miami GP Raceway is a 1/4 mile go kart track near the Opa Locka Airport.

Mega Racing

The track is open Monday to Friday from 6pm to 11pm.

Your go kart race lasts 15 minutes; this includes a 5-minute qualifying warm-up and a 10-minute race.

The cost is $30 which includes a $10 annual memberships fee.

You must be at least 50 inches tall to ride, and prepared for a workout. The race was much more physically demanding than we were expecting.

For go kart enthusiasts, near the track you can also find go kart repair shops, parts dealers, and a snack bar with arcade games.

Miami GP Raceway is located at 3990 NW 132 St in Miami, FL 33054. The phone number is (305) 688-2477. When calling, please mention that you found them on MiamiBeach411.com

Gus says:

Yes, I think you can, that is to say, if the go kart track is still in business. This story was written in 2006. Make sure you call ahead first, before loading your kart on the trailer wink
