‘The International Rental Karting Oscars’

The 1st Annual International Awards Celebrating Rental Karting

Red Carpet Event

The great work we do often goes unnoticed, so awards like these are a great way to shine a spotlight on the amazing things go kart track owners all over the world are doing to build their own businesses, put something back into their local communities and give their country's economy a much needed shot in the arm.

The competition is open for any Rental Go kart track worldwide.

There are SEVEN Awards this year and the winners will be announced on the evening of Friday 13th of January at Fastline Karting Spectacular in Dortmund Germany 2023.

The Awards are an integral part of the Karting Spectacular which runs from the 12th to 15th of January inclusive, and entry to the Awards evening ceremony is included as part of your ticket. Tickets can be purchased at, but you do not have to attend the Karting Spectacular to enter your track for an award or several awards (though if your selected as a finalist you probably should).

This is your chance to emerge from the shadows and get the recognition you deserve and just think how much winning this award will help you with your marketing and positioning! Not only will you receive a physical award to for example place on your reception counter, but also a digital certificate to put on your social media.

Opening date for entries is Thursday 27th October closing date for entries is Sunday 10th December at midnight UK time and the seven Awards up for grabs are outlined below.

Stand up and be proud of what you've achieved…

As kart tracks, we're always focused on 'what's next'.

The Karting Industry is notoriously bad at recognising and celebrating what tracks around the world have achieved and how far we've come.


Which award/s will you enter?

Best Marketing Campaign

This award recognises kart tracks who have demonstrated creativity and flair in a specific marketing campaign that has generated great results.


We're looking for the best marketing campaign in the last 12 months and will take many different aspects into consideration when judging. Your ideas, creativity, execution, and most importantly, results, are what matters here. It could be a digital campaign or something more traditional but if you've hit a homerun then tell us the story...


The Getting Sh*t Done Award

for Implementer of the Year

This award recognises significant progress.

You won't necessarily have had the most impressive growth in terms of turnover or profit, BUT you are taking action and moving in the right direction.


We are looking for the person who loves to learn and most importantly, IMPLEMENT.


Best Innovator

If you have a brilliant innovation that you want to share, this is for you


There are so many out there that have great innovations, it can be anything that improves the experience for your customers, improves your business, the track, karts, processes/procedures, personnel retention, or whatever you have…


Most Inspiring Kart Track of the Year

'Back from the Brink Award'

We're looking for the most inspirational story of a track who has emerged from bad times to find success.


We know that kart track owners are not normal, and nowhere is this better demonstrated than when times are tough, and we refuse to give in. If you've hit the bottom and bounced back in style, then you MUST share your story.


Most Impressive Growth

It could be percentages rather than $$$ but we're on the lookout for businesses that have achieved major growth over the past 12 months.


If your business has rocketed to a new level, smashed targets, and made astounding progress, then this is your chance to get some serious recognition.


Best Customer Experience

If you deliver a brilliant experience to your customers, then this award is for you.


Tell us about your astonishing customer service, how you systemise what you do so nothing falls through the cracks, and the ways in which you show true love (and WOW!) to your customers...


Best Rental Kart Track

We're on the hunt for a track that has achieved great results over the year, who can inspire us all and can prove why they should take home this prestigious award.

The winner will be judged on all aspects of their business – the judges want to know ALL the details!
