The Track

Experience real life racing

Outdoors. Under glowing floodlights. In the rain. Our track captures the excitement of real racing. And it means you'll race exactly as the racing gods intended – in all conditions.

A series of intensifying bends will test the limits of your cornering skills. And a 105m straight will push your kart to its capacity.

Choose Real Racing

  • At Ace Karts, the race is always on. Ever seen V8s race indoors? Or Formula 1? Didn't think so.

    Real racing takes place outdoors. That's why Ace Go Karts Melbourne is the most challenging open-air go-kart track.

    It's 700m of pure excitement. In our high-octane Go Karts (Super Karts) your driving skills will be pushed to the limit. In our Rookie Go Karts, the same track offers a fun-filled circuit for first-timers.

    And we stop for nothing. Not for dark. Not for rain. Not for anything.

    The race is always on. Any weather. Night or day.

    All you need to do is pick a time. Here are our opening hours:

    • Monday to Wednesday: 9am – 9pm
    • Thursday to Sunday: 9am – 10pm

    Unfortunately, we can't guarantee a position for walk-ins. Book on our website to secure your spot.

  • Nobody beats our go karts for excitement.

    And when you step through the front door, you'll experience it for yourself.

    You'll see our engineer tuning your kart ready for your race. You'll hear the petrol engines roar. And you'll feel the power beneath your feet.

    You'll experience the go karting passion we've lived and breathed since 1994. Because we're all professional go-kart racers with a passion for motorsport. And it's that passion that fuels the real life racing experience we know you'll love.

    It's what sets us apart. We're a racing facility, not an entertainment complex. Real go karting in Melbourne with real top speeds and real lap times - not the made-up ones you get at indoor tracks.

    You couldn't be in more experienced, capable hands. So you can hit the track relaxed, confident and ready to race.

  • We're 100% transparent about our safety record. But that's pretty easy. Because it's impeccable.

    When you combine our track, karts, staff and safety gear, you have the highest possible level of safety:

    • Pre and post race safety checks – on all go karts
    • Full safety briefing and video before every race
    • Races supervised by marshals with level-2 first aid accreditation
    • State-of-the-art go karting safety gear
    • Safety vests and harnesses other tracks don’t use
    • Super wide eight-metre track for safe overtaking
    • Proper run off area – no tyres boxing the track in
    • Custom-designed safety barriers around the perimeter

    And if you're thinking of go karting in Melbourne our professionals will share their driving tips and expertise with you. All you have to do is relax and enjoy the safest real life racing experience in Melbourne.

  • At Ace Karts, we have several methods of booking yourself in for a high-octane experience.

    • You can book an exclusive race with us and your friends online or over the phone.
    • You can Arrive and Drive, and pay for your races upfront.

    If you're after an exclusive race, we need a 50% upfront deposit based on the minimum number of drivers in your party.

    If you want to cancel a booking, you can do that too. Here's how you can get a full refund, minus a 10% admin fee:

    • For Arrive and Drive races, you can cancel 48 hours prior to your race time.
    • For exclusive races, you can cancel 7 days prior to your race date.

    We also have full packages for parties and events, with everything you need to reach top speed!
