About

The mission of the Mooresville GoPro Motorplex is to provide racing enthusiasts a turn-key karting experience centered around an advanced, world-class race track.  There is a diverse schedule for different levels of karters, arrive & drive events, races, and group events.  The idea for the motorplex was born in 2009 and was brought to life in 2011.  Since then, race lovers have been able to have a hands on driving experience that is affordable and easy!

The Track

The track at the Mooresville GoPro Motorplex is based on the famous Kartdromo Parma in Italy.  The Kartdromo Parma is considered one of the finest, but most challenging karting circuits in the world and was the starting place for many renowned drivers.  The GoPro track was created to mimic the original Parma, with the newest world championship karting specifications.  It features a proprietary motorsports-specific asphalt design, CIK curbing and runoff zones, and a wide, accommodating paddock and pit area capable of holding the largest events in North America.
