FAQs

How much does it cost to race?
We have many different options available, but our standard race is called an arrive and drive and it comes with the Basic Membership! Check the prices on the "Prices" page!

 

Are there any height, age, or weight requirements?
Insurance regulations require that all drivers be at least 8 years of age to drive on the big track. Children under the age of 8 will not be allowed to participate, but we now have the Falcon Raceway, a separate smaller track, available to accommodate younger racers. Also, drivers need to be at least 49 inches tall. This is so they can reach the pedals of the kart and be able to comfortably operate it.

 

The kart manufacturer and insurance regulations require that all drivers be under 300lbs.

 

How long is a race?
An arrive and drive heat race is 8 minutes.  You will typically get 10-15 laps per race.

How old does someone have to be in order to qualify for an adult kart?
To be considered an adult, you must be at least 14 years of age and be able to comfortably fit in and operate the adult kart. FLWB personnel have the final say in whether or not anyone under the age of 14 will be allowed in an adult kart.

 

How do I find out when you have available racing times?
For the most part, we are always open to the public and operate on a first come first serve basis. You may call (812) 936-5390 or visit the website to see if we have reservations on a particular day.

 

Can you reserve times for open racing?
YES!  Groups of 8 or more may call ahead and reserve a time. Racing times may be reserved by calling (812) 936-5390 for immediate booking (Please have your credit card or membership card with available racing credits ready; you will be expected to make a deposit.) Or you may e-mail us with your contact information at info@flwbindoorkarting.com and we will get back with you as soon as possible.

 

Do I have to have a parent with me if I am under 18?
YES! Any driver under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian (must be the minor’s actual parent or guardian) with them to sign the liability waiver before they will be allowed to race. If the parent or guardian is not available to accompany the minor, a waiver may be printed from this website and signed off-site. Waivers that are signed off-site must be signed by both the parent and the minor and must be notarized by a notary public. Off-site waivers that are not notarized will not be accepted and the minor will not be allowed to race.

 

Can juniors and adults race together?
Experience has taught us that the safest and most enjoyable way to race is for juniors to race with others their same age and adults with other adults. The junior karts vary significantly from the adult karts in way of size and speed, so when racing those karts together it creates a safety hazard to those out on the track.

 

An adult is welcome to race with the juniors if the adult can fit comfortably in the JUNIOR kart within the weight and size regulations of the junior karts...

 

 

How fast are the karts?
Junior karts can go up to 20 mph.
Adult karts can go up to 40 mph.

 

How long is the track?
FLWB Indoor Karting has a 1,250 ft. indoor road course.

 

How do I find out about your specials & deals?
The racing specials page of our website and our Facebook page are up to date on our most recent specials! You may also call us at (812)-936-5390 to find out the current racing specials.

 

Can I wear my own equipment?
YES!  You may bring your own helmet headsock, racing suit and/or helmet.  The helmet must be full face with a chin guard. (Your helmet will need to be inspected by our staff to ensure that it meets our safety requirements.)

 

What is the dress code?
All drivers must have on closed toe, closed heel shoes. Crocs, flip flops, sandals, high heels, and house slippers are not allowed.  Additionally, no loose fitting clothing will be allowed (such as scarves) or long, dangling jewelry. Long hair must be worn up under the helmet or tucked into clothing.

 

How do I become a member?
By purchasing a membership at our facility. Our memberships last one year, and at the end of that year, you have the option to renew your membership for only $5.

 

Why should I become a member?

What do you offer besides racing?
FLWB Indoor Karting offers retail, corporate team building events, leagues, and arcade games.

 

How many people can race on the track at one time?
Up to 10 adult karts or up to 8 junior karts.

Not for a normal arrive and drive race. However racers participating in a reserved group racing event (Arrive and Race, Sprint Races, Grand Prix, etc) must be 15 years of age and have a valid learner’s permit. Note that this only applies for group events, not for normal walk-ins.
