Pioneer Valley Indoor Karting is proud to be the only track in Massachusetts that allows drivers under 18 drive high speed gas pro karts daily. At PVIK we have Sodi Junior Karts specifically designed for our smaller Junior Racers ages 8-13. Our fleet of Junior Karts are equip with fully adjustable seats, pedals, and steering columns constructed for optimal safety and comfort to Juniors ages 8-13 and taller than 48” weighing no more than 180 pounds.  At PVIK we take the safety of Junior Racers very seriously.


  • For safety purposes juniors ages 8-13 are booked separately in “junior heats”. Juniors heats and adult heats are normally scheduled separately, however parents and accompanying party are welcome to drive in junior heats with their kids.  Adults driving in junior heats will drive an adult kart, but are asked to allow all juniors the right of way in Junior heats. Kids are learning, and parents get to be the teacher!
