Competitive Go Kart Racing

Karting in Canada’s Capital Region

What do Max Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton, Michael Schumacher, Tony Stewart, and Jacques Villeneuve all have in common? They all started their motorsports experience in karting, and now you can too!

Le Circuit Quyon, constructed in 1977, is located just 30 minutes west of downtown Ottawa/Hull in Quyon, QC, and offers a unique recreational karting experience. It is an 850m reconfigurable outdoor circuit that provides challenges and thrills to novices and experts alike. Not only does the track offer challenging rental kart experiences, it is also home to the Ottawa-Gatineau Karting Championship (OGKC) – a competition kart series featuring Briggs and Stratton racing in a variety of categories at the Club level.

The OGKC is a series which provides racers in Canada’s Capital Region with an opportunity to race in a family friendly environment, supported by experienced kart racers that are more than happy to assist those that are new to the sport.
