Vin Diesel’s “I have a family” memes massively populated our Facebook feeds for some time, and while the jest has died down, it seems like Singaporeans are taking the need for speed quite seriously.
A massive go-kart track will be opening in Jurong on 27 August, so go-kart enthusiasts and adrenaline-seekers can look forward to conquering this new circuit in the West. Starting from only S$35/session, this is a weekend activity to add to your list.
The Karting Arena’s new go-kart track in Jurong
Created by The Karting Arena, the new 700m long go-kart track spans 153,000 sq ft and features 11 technical turns. If you’ve already conquered the race track at their Bukit Timah outlet, this is a new monster circuit that you’ll have to take on.
The larger space also allows up to 30 go-karts on track at any one time. This means a shorter waiting time and more people to compete with.
No more rusty machines either. At this go-kart track in Jurong, you will be riding a fleet of Birel ART petroleum go-karts, a speedy and lightweight vehicle that’s used by pro-go-kart racers from all over the world.
Sessions are priced from S$35/session for the 30km/h Novices (minimum 9 years old and 140cm), but for those with a driver’s license, go ahead and challenge yourself with the 50km/h Adults (18 years old and above), which is also priced at S$35/session.
Not to worry if you’re afraid to take the wheel but would still like to go for a spin. Other than the single-karts, there are also double seaters which allow a pillion. Equipped with a dummy wheel at the back, you can still pretend that you’re cruisin’ while someone else does the work.
All lap timings are tracked and recorded and a digital copy will be sent to your email for keepsake — a remarkable memento for an exceptional driver.
Decked with a race control room, trace cameras, and even a viewing gallery, the new go-kart track in Jurong means business. Though open to the public, it has become a hotspot for professional race drivers as well.
To maximise the difficulty, Night driving is also available, with the arena open till 9pm daily except on Mondays.
For a full-fledged racer experience, safety measures include barriers similar to the ones installed in Formula 1 circuits, and there’s a remote stop master control system that can stop all the go-karts on track in case of an emergency.
Karters can also visit the nearby d’Arena for some refreshments after the race.
If reading this article has got your blood racing, it’s time to take a ride on this go-kart track in Jurong.
