A simple Google search of “go-karting near me” will bring you about 2,84,00,000 results. This number is overwhelming. How can you tell which is the best place for go-karting in Bangalore by simply looking at the names? But that shouldn’t stop you. We know you love to de-stress and spend your weekend away from everything you did during the week. That’s why Stanza Living PGs in Bangalore are packed with entertainment zones, foosball, table-tennis, pool, everything… err, except go-karting, obviously.
So since we can’t squeeze a go-karting track into our premises, we thought we’d bring you a list of the best Bangalore go-karting tracks. We’ve covered the facilities, the price, and the locality. So just take your pick. Call up your friends who love go-karting like you. Maybe even a couple who don’t. And go go-karting.
7 best go-karting tracks in Bangalore are:
Meco Kartopia is the only track in the Bangalore go-karting scene that follows international standards. The track is approved by the FMSCI and has hosted many national-level championships. But in addition to having a 1.2km track for pros, it has smaller tracks for amateurs too. They also offer a two-day training course called the Meco Rotax Karting Training Program. So if you’re looking to match up to National champion Yash Aradhya’s record of 54.117 seconds, you better start training here every day.
Red Rider Sports is a new sports club located in Sarjapur. So if you’re staying in one of our residences in the area, you can definitely check this place out. They have one of the longest tracks for go-karting in Bangalore. Actually, in all of south India. Apart from go-karting, it has zip-lining, paintball, wall climbing, archery, and a lot more. Given how many activities they have to get your heart beating furiously, maybe they should also have a paramedics team on board #justsaying.
Considering go-karting prices in Bangalore, Raceway Motorsports is the most student-friendly option out there. We’re talking 10 laps in just Rs. 250. But just because it’s affordable, doesn’t mean the folks at Raceway have cheaped out. They have all sorts of go-karts, with all sorts of power, for you to choose from. This place is great for beginners who are just trying their hand (and feet) at go-karting.
Offering both beginner karts and Pro Karts, this Bangalore go-karting track is really popular among both the newbies and the pros. An added benefit for the pros – they’re the only multi-level track in the city, with a combo of both slow turns and high straights. And if go there with a friend who doesn’t share your love for go-karting, they can chill at their Bowling Alley.
What makes this go-kart Bangalore track so different from the rest is its founder. Launched by Anitha Kholay, the first Indian women’s rally driver to compete internationally, this track is as good as the founder’s go-karting skills. The place has the only twin track in Bangalore and has a pretty challenging layout, according to the professionals. But don’t worry if you’re not one of them. With Aruani’s training programs, you’ll learn the A-Z of karting.
Torq03 Karting is the most popular recreational go-kart Bangalore track. Probably because they have around 60 cars, a 500-m long track, and wait-for-it, a floodlit night track. Not only that, one of their unique features is the tracking system on their karts, which allows racers to see live results of time and positions in the kart’s display. It makes racing 2x safer. And what’s even better, they have a viewing gallery too. So if you need some confidence booster as other racers zip pass you, you can bring your friends along who can cheer you on (though tbh, they’ll probably come only for the snacks).
Like we said earlier, when it comes to go-karting in Bangalore, prices turn out to be a major roadblock for those looking for an affordable option. Thankfully, there’s Patel’s Inn. Prices here start at Rs 140 for six laps. And what’s better is that it’s not only a go-karting track but a whole resort. With activities from Billiards to Snooker to Pool. And a swimming pool too. Coming back to go-karting, they have the only asphalted karting track in Bangalore. Now, we don’t know the difference the asphalt makes. But the pros do. Patel’s Inn hosted the 6th JK Tyres National Karting Championships. And the champions couldn’t stop talking about the track.
