Outdoor Karting

International-level karting on the most beautiful track in the world.


The Mika Salo Circuit, designed by F1 driver Mika Salo, is one of the most beautiful outdoor karting circuits in the world. The 1,000-metre track, curving along the banks of a river, has hosted the world’s top drivers at the European and World Karting Championships. The track’s unique profile, with its bankings and oval corner, will challenge even the most experienced driver’s racing lines. The outdoor track also features massive covered spectator stands for 2,000 spectators for major karting events.
 
Guided by our professional staff and in safe conditions, you can drive and race either in hired cars or your own equipment. There are also a few two-seater tandem cars available on the track, which can accommodate the youngest members of the family.

Outdoor Karting today: 10:00–19:00

During the summer season, you can arrive & drive by registering on the spot!

During the season, everyone is welcome to test the track’s tight corners and enjoy the fantastic surroundings! The Mika Salo Circuit is open from the beginning of May until the end of September, weather permitting. During the summer season, the outdoor karting circuit is usually open every day from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., but for safety reasons, the circuit is not open in rainy weather. Opening times may also be affected by private events, which you can see in the attached booking calendar. 

Karting is organised in 10-minute slots, with a maximum of 15 cars on the track at a time. Register at the Pit Lane Café on site for same-day slots, but you can start right away if there is space on the track! However, especially in the summer season, waiting times can be long, but you can book a time slot first thing in the morning and come back in the afternoon. 

We do not take bookings in advance for individual drivers, but when planning a trip, you can check the booking situation in advance on the booking calendar. We require all drivers to register, which you can do in advance using the form below or on the spot.

Good to know

REGISTRATION 

Registration for karting slots takes place at the track cafés (Pit Lane Café on the outdoor track and Palace Café on the indoor track). We do not take advance bookings for individual drivers, but on-site bookings are possible for the same day. 

PAYMENT 

TYKY and SMARTUM sports vouchers, all major cards and cash are accepted at our karting tracks. 

HEIGHT LIMITS 

Karting cars are subject to height limits.
On the Mika Salo Circuit outdoor track, the minimum driver height is 160 cm and the maximum is 200 cm. But children can also enjoy the thrill of speed in tandem cars with a parent or guardian. 

ARRIVING 

The outdoor karting track is located right next to the amusement park, and the Pit Lane Café for registration is located in front of the karting track. Arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of your reserved driving time. 

WEATHER 

In rainy weather, the Mika Salo Circuit outdoor track will be out of service. In case of rain, all races will automatically be moved to the Palace Areena indoor karting hall. 

RACING EQUIPMENT 

All necessary equipment is available on site, except for driving shoes. So bring your own driving shoes: sneakers or trainers, for example. A race suit, helmet, helmet hood and gloves are available on site for driving, and we wash and disinfect the equipment after each use. You can also use your own driving equipment. 

SAFETY 

Karting has a zero-tolerance policy: driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is prohibited.
 
Before driving, on both the indoor and outdoor circuits, drivers are shown safety instructions on a TV screen. Please read the instructions carefully and follow them during your visit.
 
 Moving in the pit area is only allowed with the permission of the pit staff.
 
Any driver who deliberately damages a car, for example, by driving in a careless and illegal manner, will be liable to pay compensation.
