FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers
Do I need special clothing to race?

Yes, you must have enclosed footwear, and no loose clothing items (e.g. scarves)

 

I don’t have a driving licence, can I still race?

Yes of course, you don’t need a driver’s licence to drive a go kart! We give newcomers all the guidance they need for an epic high-speed race.

What is the minimum age?

The minimum age for the kids karts is 7 years old and 12 years old for the adults karts.

Do you have a height and weight limit?

The minimum height for the kids karts are 130cm tall and the maximum weight is 90kg.

For the adults karts the minimum height is 140cm tall and the maximum weight is 130kg.

I have a medical condition or disability, can I race?

Go karting is not recommended for drivers with heart problems, epilepsy or other conditions which may be affected by exertion. Any conditions that would prevent you from acquiring a driving licence would likely prevent you from being able to race. It is our policy to provide the opportunity to access karting to as many drivers as possible. If in doubt, give our team a call!

Can adults and kids race at the same time?

Yes – but all karts on the track will be speed limited to 25kph under fun kart bookings

Will there be other drivers on the track with us?

Yes – Up to 10 drivers can be on the track at the same time.

What is your policy on alcohol?

XKarts operates on a strict NO drugs or alcohol policy. No driver is to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Random breath testing can occur.

Do I have to book before I arrive?

No – However we strongly recommend that you pre-book your session to guarantee your starting time.

How early do I need to arrive before my race?

Please arrive 15 minutes before your race time to allow for sign in and briefing.

How do I book a session time?

You can book online or by calling.

Is there anywhere to keep my phone/valuables?

Yes we provide lockers free of charge.

Do you have on site catering?

No we do not sell food. 

Do you sell drinks?

Yes we sell the Coke range, Water and Monster Energy drinks.

Do you have a kids party room?

No

How many people can race at once?

Up to 10 adults karts can race at the same time. 

Up to 8 kids can race at the same time.

Can I wear glasses with my helmet?

Yes. When wearing glasses with our helmets you will need to remove your glasses first, then put the helmet on.

Do your go karts have gears?

No, our karts are automatic. To enable super-sharp cornering, they’re built so the rear tyres can slide when you steer into a corner instead. This means that you only need to worry about two pedals and a steering wheel.

What if I am late for my booking?

We will try our best to move your race to the next available session.
