Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A sport film with lots of speedy thrills."
‑ Daphne Gordon, Toronto Star
"A strong family film that should play well for young adults and their parents."
‑ Louis B. Hobson, Jam! Movies
"The only thing missing in this shameless pandering to 'tweenagers' is a crusade against homework."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"A compendium of wretched cliches that would only be tolerable to someone who has seen very few movies, or even TV shows, ever before."
‑ Bruce Kirkland, Jam! Movies
"It may just be a kid's movie, but in some ways that makes Kart Racer's incredible lack of originality even more of a crime."
‑ J. Kelly Nestruck, National Post
