MB2 Raceway currently has four locations. The Sylmar location opened in January 2007, the Thousand Oaks location in September 2008, the Des Moines, IA location in April 2014 and Clovis, CA in May 2014. MB2 Raceway provides the Los Angeles, Ventura County, Fresno County and Des Moines, IA area with the only indoor karting facilities. We provide a high speed race simulation with a challenging road course that is fun for all skill levels. Once you have experienced MB2 Raceway you will know why indoor karting is the fastest-growing sport in the United States. Our high-performance electric European karts are capable of speeds of up to 45 mph. Combine that with being only a couple inches off the ground on our 1/4 mile road course and you're getting a racing experience that will get your heart pumping! We also have junior karts for kids, and you only need to be 48" tall to race. We welcome everyone, from walk-in racers who want to race family, friends and other customers, to private groups both small and large. MB2 Raceway caters to corporate events, team building programs, birthday and bachelor parties, new product launches, training seminars, meetings and other special occasions. After every race, each racer receives a score sheet that breaks down each racers performance. Our state of the art timing system allows competitors to view lap times and race position in real-time during each and every race on a giant projection screen. Racers are also able to go online to check past race results and lap times or check the top times of the day, week, or year. MB2 Raceway also offers a wide variety of race formats. A standard race at MB2 lasts about 10 minutes. We also offer group event packages that come in two, three, and four-race formats known as our Mini Grand Prix, Grand Prix, and Super Grand Prix. We can also work with you and your group to come up with a Tournament or race format that will best fit your groups needs. MB2 Raceway is known for having the best parties in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. Our parties range from simple racing events with snacks to complete facility rentals with access to our VIP party room, DJs, casino tables and more. Whether you are having a birthday party, bachelor party, team party, retirement party, or any other celebration, if you are looking for a party for someone from 6 to 60 that is unforgettable, MB2 Raceway is the place!. MB2 Raceway also provides an amazing venue for corporate events. MB2 is the perfect solution for companies looking to inspire their employees and colleagues with a high-performance, exhilarating, and unforgettable experience. In addition to providing all of the standard event amenities, from audio visual equipment to a complete catering selection, MB2 Raceway delivers exciting and bond-building racing challenges that make any event a tremendous success.
