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

  • Ever seen V8s race indoors? Or Formula 1? Didn't think so.

    Real racing takes place outdoors. That's why we've built Melbourne's most challenging open-air go-kart track.

    It's 700m of pure excitement. In our high-octane Super Kart, your driving skills will be pushed to the limit. In our Rookie Kart, 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.

  • Nobody beats Ace 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 racing 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. It's why we give you your real top speeds and 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 every kart
    • Full safety briefing and video before every race
    • Races supervised by marshals with level-2 first aid accreditation
    • State-of-the-art 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

    Our go-karting professionals will share their driving tips and expertise with you. So all you have to do is relax and enjoy the safest real life racing experience in Melbourne.
