The Phoenix Racing Team was created to develop drivers via mentoring and practice sessions run by senior drivers. We practice and compete as a team at the United Karting - BWI track. An individual can join the Phoenix Racing Team if they:
- Complete the COMPKART University
- Own a COMPKART
- Obtain an acceptable / competitive lap time
- Pay the required fees
School-aged children must maintain passing grades and/or a 3.0 GPA in their respective schools to be accepted to the Phoenix Racing Team. If a candidate already has reached a competitive level in karting, they can still join the Phoenix Racing Team. Applications will be available shortly.
Phoenix Racing offers COMPKART kid (Ages 5-7), cadet (Ages 8-12) and junior/adult (Age 13 - Up) karts for purchase. We offer the LO206 engine platform on our karts to help develop a driver's race craft. Once an acceptable driver skill level has been meet, we recommend migrating to the ROTAX engine platform. As a ROTAX Service Center, we have ROTAX certified master mechanics as part of our crew to assist on race days. Prices and race ready packages are listed on the e-commerce portion of our website. Phoenix Racing accepts kart trade-ins and will also help a driver find a used COMPKART.
We offer rental competition COMPKARTs for experienced drivers. Driving a competition kart requires a physically fit driver who can handle lateral g forces. Aside from the physical requirements, a rental driver must have an understanding of overall safety and race craft. We recommend less experienced drivers go through the COMPKART University at the United Karting - BWI track prior to renting a competition kart.
