A go-kart race held annually since 1958. The Purdue Grand Prix Foundation was born after a dream, inspired by a few enthusiastic students’ late night bull session, became a reality. The students wanted a way for engineering students at Purdue to exercise their skills, knowledge, and enthusiasm.

This is the culmination of those efforts in the 64th annual Grand Prix Kart Race! With the effects of COVID, in-person spectators are limited and therefore tickets will give you access to the Live-Streamed Production of Race 64. See website for details.

The track is located behind the Schwartz Tennis Center on McCormick Road near the intersection of McCormick and Cherry Lane. The first race at this new track was in 2009. The race was moved from the old track next to the Ross Ade parking lot.
