Karting Arena, Jurong

@ The Karting Arena’s second track, competitive racers (as young as 4 years) and leisure karters can hit speeds of 80 kmph on a 700m circuit with 11 turns.

 

Parents might recoil at the notion, but …

 

  • karts are fitted with a speed control device which enables them to be stopped remotely in cases of emergency
  • the barriers are similar to the ones used in F1 circuits
  • the track has a minimum width of 10m
  • safety marshals are on hand
  • slower karts (up to 30 kmph) are available (for kids, for those without driving licences, and for those not seeking 80 kmph speeds)

 

Book in advance online, register @ the reception on arrival, wait for your turn in an open-air viewing gallery.

 

  • Leisure karters must be at least 9 years old and 140cm tall
  • No loose-fitting clothing (like scarves) and covered shoes are mandatory
  • Each karting session is 10 minutes long

 

Night karting can feel like a personalised F1 experience.

 

An academy will soon begin operations to groom new talent.

 

Dual-seater karts are expected by the end of 2021.
