Located in the heart of Clifton Hill, the Speedway is Canada’s first-ever elevated go-kart race course, offering visitors the chance to combine the excitement of go-kart racing with the exhilaration of a roller coaster ride.

The karts themselves are powered by a large 4-stroke Honda motor, boasting 9 HP with a maximum track speed of 32 km/hr.
