Karting at KAEC610A6182

Go karting just got really exciting with Arrive and Drive Go-Karting, an open practice against the clock rather than a head-to-head race. The 700-meter long track consists of fast straight routes, long fast corners and a good mixture of slower corners for every kind of driver. Protective gear is provided and the staff oversees every race to ensure safety.
