Any outdoor circuit of less than 1,500 meters in length.
The average length for a serious racing track for karts is around 1,100 - 1,200 meters, 7 to 9 meters in width. Normally custom-built for karting, they resemble road courses, with left and right turns. They generally allow sprint racing for both gearbox and non-gearbox karts.
Temporary circuits can be set in city streets or large parking lots for special events. This is the case for the Junior Monaco Kart Cup, a prestigious event for young drivers taking place each year in the city of Monaco, and the SKUSA SuperNationals, taking place in Las Vegas at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino.
This type of event can see karts (Superkart) reach speeds in excess of 160 mph (250 km/h).
Longest Indoor Karting TracksEdit
The Worlds longest indoor circuit is the Highway Kart Racing GmbH  in Germany at 1600m and uses both Rimo Karts and 270cc SODI Karts. The UK's longest indoor circuit is Capital Karts in Dagenham London and is the UK's first indoor circuit over Template:Convert/km long. Scotland's largest indoor circuit is Dundee Karting with a track length of Template:Convert/m. Both these circuits are using RIMO karts from Germany which are used at Michael Schumacher's track.
Normally for casual racers, the indoor circuits can be in any closed space (often old factories), sometimes with a short outdoor section to add interest. Normally they have their own fleet of Go-karts or micro karts, chosen more for economy than out-and-out speed.
In Europe, indoor karting is where most people will sample their first time in a kart. Indoor karting exploded across the UK in the 1990s and had a similar impact in European countries such as France and Belgium. It has made a lesser impact in the United States. Indoor karting still offers a competitive experience for all levels of racers.
