Race the Whole Family
Andersen RacePark in Palmetto, Florida has some of the world’s fastest karts. But, for a family looking to rent some karts and race for fun, they have slower karts that still fulfill the need for speed while giving parents greater peace of mind. Any child under 16 has to first complete a Minor Licensing class with a trained instructor. However, make no mistake, this isn’t just some boring safety lecture. Minor Licensing classes are designed to help young racers maneuver around the track to the best of their abilities so they have a fulfilling and safe experience.
Those 16 and older can start racing almost immediately. Families from all over, whether they’re returning on vacation, visiting from a nearby city, or call the area their home, have found Andersen RacePark to be an exciting and unique experience that brings them closer together.
Getting Down to Business
Andersen RacePark isn’t just bringing families closer together, it’s helping strengthen teams in businesses throughout the area. Instead of the same boring holiday party, why not give them an experience they’ll never forget? Offering ample meeting space, and several race packages, such as endurance races and renting out the entire facility, Andersen RacePark’s corporate karting program provides companies with a unique venue for events, meetings, and team-building programs. Thanks to their state-of-the-art facility, coupled with a fleet of Birel N35 Karts (racing karts with 9.5 HP Honda 4 stroke engines), the Andersen RacePark events team can ensure all of your needs are met.
Building Future Racers
Motorsport is one of the most competitive sports in the world. To help train the racers of today to become the champions of tomorrow, Dan Andersen, founder of Andersen RacePark, and his team at Andersen Promotions created the Road to Indy. The Road to Indy, presented by Cooper Tires, is one of the most successful driver development programs in the world. Comprised of Indy Lights (presented by Cooper Tires), the Indy Pro 2000 Championship (presented by Cooper Tires), and the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship, the ladder system provides a unique, scholarship-funded path to the NTT IndyCar Series and Indianapolis 500. This commitment to young drivers, and the entire sport of open-wheel racing, is what makes Andersen RacePark the obvious choice for those looking to begin and advance a professional racing career no matter the age.
