Who we are
Racelab is a team of enthusiastic racers just like you. We take pride in our positive team atmosphere, and use unique methods of driver, and personal development which have led to great success thus far. We use race karts as our means to make our clients smile, and improve themselves not only as racers, but as citizens.
We believe that having the best people is more important than having the best equipment, engines, and facilities (even though we have all of those, too!). Racelab presents a perfect balance of competitiveness, tenacity, hard work, sportsmanship, and amiability. We are known for our polite, professional manner in the pits, and our hard-and-clean racing on-track.
Choosing Racelab is much more than picking a new kart supplier–It’s joining a new and quickly growing community. Each new member of our team is pleasantly surprised at the family-like, mature approach that we take to what can be a very cutthroat sport.
The growth mentality that has been adopted by the entirety of the Racelab team will push us to strive and grow in the ever-changing karting industry. We will stop at nothing to be on top in all respects.

Racing is the best sport in the world. This is an opinion that is shared by all of our staff.
