Go-Kart Racing

Interested in getting involved with racing, but don’t want to make the significant investment required to build a race car? Indoor electric go-kart racing might be right up your alley. RPM Raceway hosts daily go-kart racing — and things can get competitive. Located just 22 miles southeast of UTI Bloomfield, it’s a great way to spend some time when school isn’t in session.

Drag Racing

Maple Grove Raceway may be a bit closer to UTI’s campus in Exton, Pennsylvania, but if you’re up for the drive, it’s worth checking out. We’ve known of many die-hard drag racing fans who regularly drive more than a few hours to get to a great track, and if that sounds like you, Maple Grove should be on your short list. From April through October, at least eight monthly events are held at the track, including street-legal drag racing and car shows. The raceway is about 141 miles from the UTI Bloomfield campus.
