1. Hyper Karting
Hyper Karting is one of Sydney’s latest additions to go-karting race tracks, and it’s such a great addition too. Ever done go-karting before? You 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 a bit like stepping into a calm and peaceful rainforest. Okay, that’s not true, but you certainly won’t have to deal with bad fumes and constant noise.
That is because Hyper uses brand new, German made electric go karts with zero emissions or fumes. They can go just as fast, if not faster, than conventional go-karts. You will be racing on the 5th level of the main car park on an exhilarating 410 metres long indoor race track.

Here are a few tips for the best and safest go karting 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 tires 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.
