Reminder: Karting In Detroit This Saturday. Are You In?

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Besides the cars, there’s nothing we love at Jalopnik more than shameless self-promotion. Especially when it’s for our own event, and the event is an extremely fun one ahead of the Detroit Auto Show involving pizza (the non-Chef Boyardee kind) and karting.

This is your reminder that we’re going karting in the Detroit area THIS SATURDAY, and you should come race with us. Or just hang out. We’ll have car trivia there too.


Once again, the details:

When: Saturday, Jan. 12, 2019

Where: Kart 2 Kart, 42705 Van Dyke Avenue – Sterling Heights, MI 48314

Check in: 5:30-6 p.m.

Exhibition Drift Trike Races: 6:30 p.m.

Race Start Time: 7 p.m.

Podium Photos: To follow the final race

Trophies for Podium Finish Drivers of the Feature Race

Program Concludes: 11 p.m.-ish

The cost is $60 per person to enter if you pre-register or $65 at the door, but that’s a steal considering you get two qualifying sessions, a shot at the title if you’re fast enough, plus food and drinks on us and Kart 2 Kart.


If you wanna just come and hang out and eat pizza, but not race, it’s only $5 at the door. And we’ll have stickers, t-shirts and trophies for winners!

To register, please call (586) 997-8800, extension 104. There’s no online registration, but this is more direct anyway.


Come on out! If they arrive on time we’ll have t-shirts and other swag to give away to our trivia winners.

I may even share some of my famous SPORTS TAKES with you all.


See you in Sterling Heights!
