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.
Owner: Vanellope von Schweetz
Vanellope's kart is a messy kart which is a yellow cream cake covered in a lot of sprinkles and icing. Her spoiler is a pink wafer covered in chocolate sauce or fudge which is held up by straws. Her pipes are also straws that blow out powdered candy. The wheels are cookie biscuits wrapped with candy worms. One of the wheels changes in the Wreck it Ralph Storybook Deluxe to a chocolate cookie wheel, which was the same in toy form.
