Our Indoor Track
The track itself is 475m long and is over 3, yes 3 levels! It is mainly indoors, so can be run rain hail or shine which makes it perfect for a Gold Coast wet weather activity, or if the sun is shining, there is an additional outdoor section which can be opened!

If it’s your first time you’re going to leave with a smile on your dial and if you’re a seasoned racer then you’re going to love the challenge of getting a fast lap!
Our Go Karts
We have a huge fleet of the latest European state of the art machines, designed for 24-hour endurance go kart racing. Our Pro Karts are powered by 9hp four stroke Hondas, which are de-governed! When matched with the 70kg chassis, these are very potent, unlike any other hire kart centre you have seen, and can reach up to speeds of 70 km/h. All karts are fitted with an individual timing transponder, which times the karts to an incredible 1/1000th of a second!
We also have Cadet and Intermediate and dual karts available for use during our kids and family sessions. The Sodi Two Drive is widely acclaimed as the best dual kart in the world, with incredible performance that shines on our full three level indoor drift kart track! Featuring the latest safety and ergonomics, the kart gives the real racing experience.
The dual kart can share the track with Cadet and Intermediate karts, is ideal for training purposes, and is suitable for those who are not confident driving themselves.
