Feedback from you...Umigo is a blast!
We take all feedback seriously, Umigo is your track!
 

What a fabulous place for a party! They can handle any size group from driving teens to adults! We just celebrated my husbands 50th birthday, fully catered by Checker's Catering, driving and dancing the night away. A great evening! I couldn't have asked for anything more! It was fantastic!!!

-Jacqueline


We had GREAT time last night at Umigo; probably the best team building event ever! Thank you so much to all the Umigo staff- every single one of you were awesome. Can’t wait to schedule another event there.

Thanks!!!

-Romy



I celebrated my 50th birthday Saturday at Umigo, thanks to my amazing wife and kids. I have to say it was my best birthday EVER! Monday morning and I am still high from the experience. Also being ranked in the top 1% is a great ego boost as well. I look forward to my next visit soon
-Richard F

Great staff, lot of fun! They obviously enjoy their jobs !

We'll be coming back soon !!!!

Thanks!

Too bad my son whooped my butt ! Lol

-Robert L

 


 

Your staff - Kristin, Kayla and Devin, were very attentive to our needs. I do not recall the names of the staff who assisted us with the go karts, but they were also very friendly and helpful and provided reassurance that our safety was their number one concern.   Great job umigo team!!! ...

 

...We will spread the word that umigo is the place to go for fun and excitement.

 

On behalf of the Sandia Team, thank you once again for providing our winning team with a memorable experience!

 

Sincerely, -Nancy


My cousin and I went here for our friend's birthday. When he first told me we were going go karting I was like, "sure, go karts are fun." I did not expect them to be go karts like this. Seriously, best go karts I've ever been in. I would say the worst thing about this place is it ruined me for other go karts.

 


I brought my son over to Umigo for the first time this evening. We got lost and were a little late for the reservation.  Nicole was outstanding and took care of us right away.  My son, who is 12, was a little nervous and the young men who were there were just outstanding in working with him and building his confidence.  I was really impressed!!  Thank you!!!!! - Mary

 


Thank you soo much for making our first visit to umigo great!!! I took my 11yr old son and I was so stoked on how he was treated ( during his certification training and race) his instructor was both patient and encouraging & made my son comfortable !!!   We will be back!!! Thanks umigo!!!!    Excited mom:)

 


"I just wanted to let you now that my friend and I had a fantastic time racing around the Umigo course. You guys have top notched customer support, clear communication, knowledgable and helpful staff, and our experience at your facility was awesome. We had a blast. Thank you" -David P.


"'I've been to many indoor karting places and Umigo was by far the best! Family owned (which I love). Normal prices for Karting and they are one of the only places that offers special deals and special days. Most consistent karts in the Bay Area, I always have a great kart and great experience! It's always fun to go with friends but I've been known to kart on my own too. If it's your first time karting ask if you can go on the track with other novice drivers or a smaller group so you can have a pleasant first experience. This is one of our favorite things to do in a group! We've even had BDay parties here!"

-Ruby


"My son has learned so much about racing from the guys at Umigo. They are brilliant!"

-P Webster

"This place is the best. My son and I love racing indoors at Umigo!!"

-B Hetherington


"The best place for indoor go kart in the bay area.
Their tracks are wide enough to pass slow cars almost anywhere, other places track are too narrow, if the car in front doesn't cooperate you have to get stuck behind someone forever. While at Umigo, if you're reasonably faster than the car in front, you can pass using your overtaking skills, just like real racing.

Their karts are the way go karts should be, no stupid adjustable pedals (like Gokart racer and Lemans karting). Brake pedals are pressure modulated, no pedal travel. Their seats are adjustable, so there's no problem for people with various height.

Track has lower grip than other places which is better to amplify your driving mistakes, and you really have to work on driving neatly or else you'll lose a lot of time.

Price is very good.
A lot of different track configs.
They won't yell at you and treat you like an idiot (like Lemans karting) as long as you know what you're doing and don't go crazy"

-Joly S.


"Thank you Umigo staff members. This weekend we celebrated a 16th Birthday at your facility. Due to bad limo service, our group arrived approx 40 mins late. The staff was extremely understanding and made sure the party went as planned. I cannot thank them enough for making what could have been a horrific experience into one of the best times ever for us all.With much gratitude, thanks again."

-Candace P


"I had a group of racers Saturday morning and was happy with the service. The person that took our money was VERY nice and respectful and treated us well. I appreciate the professionalism. My group was a bit of a handful as I assume you probably get from time to time and you guys handled yourselves well. Will definitely be back again."

-Sean O


"I would personally like to say that besides the great experience we had as a "husband & wife nite" one of your employees really stood out the young mans name is Andrew, I feel he is a great asset to your company, he was very informative as well as personable, which really seems to lack in these days.

 

I have been telling my friends of the great time we had... I think this would be a great corporate fun time so again thanks for the fun and will be attending future races and i hope to see my stats as I try my skills to achieve the goal of " Top Points Overall"!

Thanks again-"

"We had a great time at Umigo Racing today. My husband and I were very impressed with the staff. Our son took the Jr. Racing class and we were not nervous at all to have him out there when we saw all of the staff that were out there keeping an eye on the kids. The instructors were great. We then had a fantastic time racing as a family after our son finished his class. My 74 year old father even raced! Thanks for helping make my husband's birthday fun and great. We will definitely be back!"
-Heather W. 
"I went to your Livermore property with a friend of mine on Wed and we had so much fun! So I was wondering if you have any group deals going on anytime soon because I would love to come with more people next time.

From your front desk check in to the guys on the track they were all extremely helpful, professional and a pleasure to be around. They did a great job. You should be proud of your staff.

The guys really loved the racing. We are talking about having a routine meeting out there. I think that the next one in the school will be much bigger after these guys talk it up."

Michael B.


"I started racing at the age of 8 and now I am 35. I have run quarter midgets, go karts, Legend cars, Micro sprints, Limited sprint cars, full sprint cars both dirt and pavement wing and non wing. I have been to a few indoor karting places in the past and I will have to tell you that I was pretty excited when I heard that there was one here in Livermore. I came in after work last week and tried out a hot lap session. Wow! I have never experienced anything like this before. This was the coolest thing I have done in a long time. I can't wait to get more time to get more familiar with the karts and track. The karts that you have are fantastic. The balance of the brakes with the power that is available is the best that I have ever experienced. I just wanted to let you know that your facility and staff were great and I look forward to coming back again and again. Good luck and hope you have many years of success"

-Joe K.


"Just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed our first visit to Umigo. We stopped by to check it out on Thursday evening and the two gals behind the front counter were so friendly and one of the main reasons we signed up so quickly. My husband is a long time cart racer, and this was my first time. The guys in the track area were really helpful and made me feel comfortable considering I had no idea what I was doing. We signed up and raced together - it was a blast! My husband and son are headed back there tonight. You have great prices, clean and comfortable facilities, and a friendly staff. I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot of you this year."
Thanks again,
-Leslie K.


"Your carts are much better quality than most places. Very slick track but fun to drive. I like the flexibility of the course designs....Looking forward to driving there again!"

-Wendy S

 

My friends and family absolutely love Umigo! Warm, friendly, and most important FUN! My husband and I have had two major life events at Umigo (our wedding rehearsal party and our baby shower)!! Our friends and family are still raving about how awesome it is!!!

-Necosha


"Awesome place to race karts.  I've been to many places and Umigo checks all the boxes.  I like that the tracks change frequently.  Gaskarts are always more fun than electric and these can get going pretty good.  Always a nice blend of technical and fast sections.

 

The staff is friendly and knowledgable.  I can't remember the owners name but spoke to him several times.  He is  always eager to help, seems enthusiastic, and has a generally great attitude. 

 

I took my 14 y/o nephew here.  I think it was a little overwhelming for him at first, but when we left, he was smiling ear-to-ear."

-Andrew L.


 

I'm sending this to you in appreciation for the service a few of your workers provided during my departmental "team building" event I had at your facility. Shelby was patient, proficient and professional, got us right in on time. Skyler was very informative and fair (of course I won so I'm probably the only one that thinks so!). Kristin ordered pizza when one of my leaders forgot to, and added plates and cups. She really saved the day in a timely fashion! All of the employees I interacted with that day had a positive attitude and seemed to be happy to serve us. I reflected with my leaders how this positive attribute can translate to a better work environment for anyone. The planned learning event was centered around how well they plan and assign coverage when they are not available, the added learning they received from positive attitudes was a bonus! Thank you again and please give your employees feedback, thank you again and we will be back! 

- John

 



Thank you for making my sons 13 bday special. We had so Much fun! What a great staff.

"This Sunday me and my family enjoyed a 3 session afternoon with a little competitive spirit peppered in.  It was so much fun.  I love drifting through the U-turns (yea, I know it cuts in to your time, but its waaay more fun )…

 

This is not your Mother’s Sunday drive (unless you’re my kids ;-)… it’s waay better…

 

Thanks for the fun"

-Dawn S.

"I would like to compliment the entire group that helped us today. We had a first time party of (7) seven, and we had an excellent time. As can be expected we had a million questions, and all were patiently answered. Everything from the front desk who waited patiently for the stragglers, to the safety video, and the track, your employees were terrific. Thank you for a fantastic time. I am planning a return trip with our family. I know that we will have an even more enjoyable time.

Appreciated your facility,"-Roy S "I have been here a few times, but the first time was most memorable.  The staff here are friendly and assisted me when I needed them.  I have always had a blast when I race here!"

"I am a director of a summer camp for young teens. Your staff and facilities were absolutley wonderful. The teens were given clear instruction and shown around the course with professionalism. I would and will recommend Umigo to everyone I know. We had such a good time I have already e-mailed you guys to set up another appointment for next week. Thank you again for the wonderful experience. It is a rarity to come away from a field trip or activity and have every kid absolutly love it. You can't beat 100% satisfaction.

Thank you again and we will be seeing you guys again soon.

Sincerely,"

"Hey, I just went to Umigo for my first time today and had a total blast! The place seems to be very well run, and the track workers were able to react to “variables” very quickly and effectively, allowing the track to stay hot 100% of the time. It was easily the most fun I’ve had for that amount of money in a long time.

 

I will certainly be back for more, and now that I’ve got the bug, I’ll have to get someone to give me a tow around the track and show me how to go really fast! Hope to see you all soon! Thanks again."

-Aaron C

Your entire staff is to be commended.
We will be looking to do more events with you and will pass along the good word about your facility and staff to other Corvette clubs that are looking for a place to race go-karts.
Good luck on your new business."
-Keith M. SCC & Tim K. DVC

"As an avid outdoor karting enthusiast I felt the same rush at Umigo Racing as I do at Infineon. The best part was being able to race without all the extra work: unloading the karts, putting air in the tires, pouring gas in the tank, warming the motor & tires and then loading back up when its all over. What an economical way to have fun and a great time for an entire family & friends."
-Stephen S.

We'll be back soon, that's for sure!!"
