Have a Go Days


Next date:  TBC

2nd September 2018  - EVENT WITHDRAWN

Is competitive karting the right sport for you?  Competitive race karts have up to four time the power and go twice as fast as the best indoor hire karts.  Driving on an open outdoor track with long straights and sweeping corners is far more exhilarating than the average indoor kart track.


The fundamental difference is that you can rock up to any local indoor kart track, pay the money and have a drive.  Competitive karting does not work like that as you need to own all your own equipment.  This could be an expensive experiment should you purchase all the necessaries, such as the kart, karting suit, helmet, trailer etc only to find that you don't like the sport.


Welcome to our "Have a Go" program.  

On the dates listed above we will open our track up to those that want to "Have a Go" at driving a real race kart in a controlled environment.  For all those that are under 15 years of age you get the use of a real two stroke race kart on the track by yourself with no other karts for two five minute sessions.  Five minutes is the typical time of an average race.  For people 15 years and over we limit the number of karts on the track to a maximum of three.  The cost of participation is $60 plus a compulsory insurance payment of $25 which covers any damage to the kart or equipment apart from the insurance excess of $250 (or add just $10 to have insurance excess waiver).

Karts Available (Subject to change without notice)

  • 5 x Briggs
  • 3 x Cadets
  • 1 x Vortex Mini Rok


Bookings are essential as we only have a limited amount of time slots on each day.  Once booked you will be given an arrival time which then reduces the amount of time you have to wait for your drive.  To book please email mathewcoleman@ihug.co.nz


We have more information in our Have a Go Info Pack that you can download.

Our "Have a Go Days" would not be possible without the help of our sponsors.
