Team Photo


We started out as a Father & Son race team in 2007. Previously Randy owned a motorcycle road racing team and was 2nd overall in the '99 Open Supersport Expert class, and also raced as a semi-pro in Formula Extreme. Randy also did some occassional arrive & drive karting and worked as a race technician for a Sports 2000 race car team in the 90's and early 2000's, before Ethan started karting full time. Since then we have grown into a kart distributor, safety gear distributor, and championship winning kart team. If you would like to be part of the team, please contact us.

Our condolences to the Martin family. John was a great friend to all of us here, and one of the greatest innovators in karting.

We're leaving this little blurb about the company here in honor of John and the amazing karts he designed and built in the USA. Please note, we've had some customers confuse ikart with Italkart - they are two conpletely different companies. ikart Indianapolis is no longer in business, but Italkart is.

American. A one-word definition of the racing heritage embodied in the innovative, forward thinking, and speed oriented team that is iKart. Established in Indianapolis, the racing capital of the world, iKart is the answer to the call for a new leader in American karting.iKart Factory

Innovation is reinvention, and that is exactly what iKart aims to give with its products. From chassis design focused on providing precise and measurable response to adjustments and accessory products designed for simplicity and efficiency, iKart is claiming its stake in karting. Quality products, quantifiable results, and the support of a factory of designers and engineers right here in the United States- welcome to the world of iKart.

Founded by owner John Martin, a lifelong karter with decades of experience in the motorsports industry, iKart's goal is to revolutionize American karting. This began with crafting a chassis that was 100% American made.

We at iKart have a shared passion for the sport of karting and a strong desire to preserve, cultivate, and expand the sport from where it stands today. We don't want our chassis and products to differentiate from the competition merely by the color we chose to paint them. Instead we feel that karting is in need of innovation and a new approach from the standpoint of both design and business. By proving that a new way is possible we hope to inject energy and excitement back into karting across the country.
