Our philosophy

We're committed to ensuring every driver has a great time and gets across the line safely.

While our outdoor track provides an exciting and authentic motorsport experience, it has also been designed with safety in mind – for all weather conditions. There is no track in Australia that contains a greater number of built-in safety features.

And that's not even accounting for our industry-leading karts, safety gear and staff.

So no matter who wins the race, safety is always number one.

The ultimate kart

We wanted the best karts in the world. So we went and found them. Our search led us to France and SodiKart – a world class kart manufacturer whose commitment to performance and safety matched our own.

Powered by Honda engines, our SodiKarts are perfectly suited to our outdoor circuit. In any weather, at any time, our karts' performance is unsurpassed. In particular, our Super Kart is capable of reaching 75km/h with no loss of handling. It features the latest technology stemming from 30 years' extensive research and development.

To put it simply, no other race karts in Melbourne offers thrills like ours.
