Racing Karts are perhaps the most crucial items within the game of Sugar Rush. Each racer is required to own one of these sweet candy and cookie vehicles if he or she wants to race and become part of the roster.
Racing karts are usually created in the Kart Bakery, which is a mini-game where racers can choose from a variety of ingredients and decorations to bake into their kart. All of the karts in the game appear to be both very fast and durable, as they are capable of taking many hits and driving over all different types of terrain.

Vanellope/King Candy's kart is a pink and white cart that appears to be made completely out of sugar with a crown on the front bumper.

The wheels have white flowers on them, and three golden pipes stick out from each side of the kart. This kart parks between Adorabeezle Winterpop and Jubileena Bing-Bing. It was presumably destroyed when it was eaten by a Cy-Bug along with King Candy. Some fans call this kart the Royal Kart, but that name has not been confirmed by Disney as of yet. Despite being completely made out of sugar, it still has a typical race car sound and with 3 pipes on both sides, it is a 6-cylinder 4-stroke engine. It is also shown the gear lever can be removed, as King Candy mashed it on the accelerator in his attempt to kill Vanellope.
