HOW LONG DOES A RACE GO FOR?

A race goes for 18 laps maximum for adult kart races, and 16 laps maximum for Jr kart races, or 9 minutes maximum, whichever is sooner. Almost all races go the full distance before the time elapses. As soon as the first racer crosses the line the race is finished. Usually the group won’t be slowed to enter the pits until at least half a lap after the first racer crosses the finish line. This means if the supplementary racers are only half a lap behind the leader, they will finish the 18 laps at full speed also.

WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF RACERS ON THE TRACK AT ANY ONE TIME?

There will be a maximum of 8 racers on the track at any one time. There possibly could be 10 under very special circumstances.

HOW LONG DOES ONE RACE GO FOR

A race goes for 18 laps maximum for adult kart races, 16 laps maximum for Jr kart races, 20 laps for Super Shifter kart races, or 9 minutes maximum, whichever comes first. Almost all races go the full distance before the time elapses. As soon as the first racer crosses the line the race is finished. Usually the group won’t be slowed to enter the pits until at least half a lap after the first racer crosses the finish line. This means if the supplementary racers are only half a lap behind the leader they will finish the 18 laps at full speed also.

HOW DO I ACQUIRE A LICENSE FOR THE SUPER SHIFT KARTS?

All you need to do is set a sub 18.9 second laptime* in regular Adults Karts. This laptime will be stored on the system and you will be able to book race places in the Super Shift Karts anytime afterwards. It costs $5 per race to upgrade from a regular adult kart to a Super Shifter Kart.
*Sub 18.9 is 18.899 seconds or less

WHICH KARTS CAN AND CAN'T RACE AGAINST EACH OTHER?

Adult Karts are able to be in the same race as Super Shifter Karts and vise versa. Duo Karts can also go out with Adult and Super Shifter Karts, but Duo Karts are not to be raced, they are for fun use only.

Junior Karts can only compete against other Junior Karts, as it is too dangerous for them to race or ride with any other karts.

WHAT ARE THE MINIMUM AGES AND HEIGHTS

Junior Karts = 7y.o+ and min 120cm (no exceptions)
Adult Karts = 13y.o+ and min 140cm (some exceptions may apply)
Super Shifter Karts = 13y.o+ and a license must be earned (no exceptions)
Duo Karts Driver* = 18y.o+ and min 140cm (no exceptions)
Duo Karts passenger = 4y.o+ (we highly recommend that a helmet is tried at least 30 minutes for your race time)
* Duo Karts can be heavy to steer and are for fun only, not for racing

No, unfortunately not. You can however hire a party room and bring your own food and drinks. Party rooms start from $70 for the first hour and $40 for every subsequent hour, or part there of. Discounts may be available if a lot of races are booked.
