KF1 Karting Circuit is a popular go-kart track in Singapore. The CIK-FIA, the governing body of the sport, approved this track! It was designed by the renowned Formula 1 circuit designer Hermann Tilke. Exciting, isn't it? The track's ability to be separated so that two races can run simultaneously is a significant aspect that makes the track so wonderful and unique.

This twisty track has 18 turns and some variations in inclinations and banking, it can be clearly seen that it was intricately designed to challenge the drivers on track. In addition to the challenging layout, it's also illuminated at night with lights similar to those found at the Singapore Grand Prix.

The corporate kart & dine experience is another important amenity that can be enjoyed at this track. This experience features dinners, entertainment, live music, and racing all in one package.

KF1 Expo is one of the newest addition to the list of tracks in Singapore. A much-needed track in the east side of Singapore after the closure of the go-kart track in Changi, KF1 Expo transforms an underutilized car park at the Expo into one very technical track.

The track is one of the largest purpose-built go-kart track in Singapore boasting a total of 16 corners along its 750m long track. Negotiate the complex sectors of the track under the lights just like the F1 drivers at the Singapore Grand Prix. You're sure to have a blast!

Similar to the karts at KF1's Kranji circuit, the rental karts are Viper karts that will allow you to reach speeds of up to 50 km/h.

Arena Country Club has one of Singapore's first few purpose-built go-kart tracks. It has changed owners a number of times but it still stands the trials of time. The track has been updated to match the new regulations, with shorter corners and faster straights for a more exciting race. The layout remains mostly the same as in the past but the new grippy tarmac makes it a pleasant experience to drive on.

You can choose to go with the arena's one-time registration plan if you're interested in racing in the future because it's one of the more affordable options available. On the other hand, the arena provides a number of different plans for tourists, categorizing them as beginner, intermediate, or advanced.

It is a short track consisting of only nine turns, and it is the very first track in the country to run electric go-karts. Aside from that, the arena also provides go-karts for children as well as adults, with the requirement that children be at least 9 years old to participate. One interesting and unique thing they have at the Karting Arena is the type of events you can choose from to maximize the fun there. Choose from Fun Karting, Super Grand Prix, Grand Prix, Mini GP, Kids Birthday Parties, and Corporate Races are the six different events that can be held at the arena.

You will be impressed by the arena's corporate discounts if you want to encourage stronger team-building among your workforce and if you want to do so, the arena will provide them. The electric-powered go-karts have incredible acceleration and are built on lighter chassis, which improves their handling and makes them easier to control. This is another track you should definitely visit!

In recent months, there have been some talks that there's going to be another go-karting track in Singapore. One unique feature of this new track is that it's going to be indoors and will feature a gamified version of go-karting in Singapore. Think Mario-karts with the sabotages, lights, and all. The karts will be all-electric so you won't have to worry about the fumes in this upcoming indoor go-kart facility. We're all looking forward to it!

Address:
Palawan Sands, Sentosa (TBC)

 

Maximum Drift Karting Arena - Temporarily Closed
Maximum Drift Track Orto

Although this facility is temporarily closed until further notice, we thought we'd mention it as this is a unique kart track, as the name says. The circuit has tight turns, many hairpins, and a special part named "69" for drifting. Beginners should train and follow directions attentively. This track allows drift go-karts, that's quite exciting if you ask me. *Eurobeat intensifies*

Asides from driving challenges, the arena also plans business events, casual drift karting, and group activities. The venue has PA sound systems, free parking, outside event space, bathrooms, nursing facilities, eateries, strollers, and wheelchair access to make the experience unforgettable.

Address:
81 Lorong Chencharu, Yishun,
#01-15, Singapore 769198

Which of these places would you like to go Go-karting? It's definitely a tough decision. Why not visit all?
