The Track

Want to race like the pros? You're on the right track.

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 outdoor go-kart track. It's 700m of pure excitement. And the race is always on. Any weather. Night or day.

Tips on racing the Ace Karts track

  • 1

    Turn 1

    Brake in to turn 1 and exit the corner in the middle of the track to set up turn 2.

  • 2

    The Cutback

    Keep the kart to the left on the apex and keep the throttle smooth on exit.

  • 3

    Northern Loop

    This turn has a constant radius, so keep your line nice and smooth, sticking to the right-hand side of the track.

  • 4


    Very hard left-hander – go in hard and accelerate flat-out to stop the rear end from sliding. Stick to the right-hand side and keep your line as smooth as possible as this is a constant-radius turn.

  • 5

    The Abyss

    Keep the kart as straight as you can then turn hard to the right.

  • 6


    Stick to the right to set yourself up a double-apex left-hander. Brake smoothly and exit in the middle of the track.

  • 7

    Sonic Corner

    Constant radius right hander. Use all of the exit to the white line.

Track technical specs

There's no go-kart track like ours

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

    Night or day, rain or shine, we guarantee the most authentic motorsport experience outside the professional world. 

    Our open-air track offers thrills at every turn. All seven of them. A series of intensifying bends to test the limits of your cornering skills. Eight lanes for ample overtaking. And a 105m straight that pushes our Super Karts to their 75km/h capacity.

    Thanks to our track sensor system, you'll get real driving stats. Not the made-up ones you get at indoor karting. We'll accurately measure your race stats to show you your best lap time – and the top speed you hit.

  • Where can you go when you're already in top gear?


    Ask our regulars. Just when they think they've aced our circuit, we play our wild card. We reverse the track.

    The finish line becomes the starting grid. And everything goes backwards from there. It levels the playing field – even a newbie could pip an Ace Karts regular to the podium.

    So no matter how often you experience our track, you can always expect a fresh challenge.

  • At Ace Karts, excitement doesn't come at the expense of safety. We're committed to ensuring every driver has a great time and gets across the line safely.

    • Proper grass run-off area for superior authenticity and safety
    • Eight lanes wide (instead of the standard four) means there's more room to overtake safely
    • Energy impact absorption systems
    • Unequalled safety standards
    • Regular track inspections

    Prefer slow and steady? Our go-kart track is suitable for drivers of any skill level.

    • Our Super Karts are perfect for real speed demons aged 12 and above, allowing them to get up to 75km/h around the track.
    • Our Rookie Karts allow you to negotiate our track at your own pace – especially practical for budding drivers aged 6 to 11.
    • Children as young as 4 can still enjoy a tandem ride-along with a parent or guardian, thanks to our 2Seater Karts.

    Please note that all children under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to sign them in.
