Keep reading to learn more about go-karting and where to find Sydney’s best indoor and outdoor race tracks.

Tips for Go-Karting

Before you go out and try one of the below go-karting race tracks, here are a few tips for the best and safest experience:

  • Always listen to instructions, stick to the rules and pay attention to the flag and light signals.
  • If you’re racing at a slower speed than others on the track, let them overtake on the straights or go wide on the turns.
  • Leave sliding and drifting to experienced racers; it will just slow you down.
  • Brake gently on the straights before turning, not during the turn.
  • Always keep the front tyres in control to maintain the best race line.
  • Only overtake slower drivers when it is safe to do so.
  • Go wide before cutting into the turn, and then accelerate at the apex.

1. Hyper Karting

Hyper Karting is one of Sydney’s newest additions to go-karting race tracks, and it’s such a great addition. If you’ve done go-karting before, then you will know how bad those race tracks can smell and how noisy they can be.

Enter Hyper Karting at Moore Park’s The Entertainment Quarter. Visiting Hyper Karting is almost like stepping into a calm and peaceful rainforest. Okay, that’s not true, but you definitely won’t have to deal with harmful fumes and constant noise.

That is because Hyper uses German-made electric go-karts with zero emissions or fumes. They can go just as fast, if not faster, than traditional go-karts. You will be racing on the 5th level of the main car park on an exhilarating 410-metre long indoor race track.

Hyper Karting is open seven days per week. Online bookings are recommended.
