Its the only go karting on island so live with it.
Karts are past their best but reasonably fast good circuit staff not friends hot helpful and are horizontal in their approach, we actually wanted to race again but was told the casier was at lunch and would have to come back in and hour.
Helmets stink and are dirty
VERY VERY bad health and safety......
We had flip-flops and no briefing and only 1 watching a large circuit

Nice and affordable place to go with colleagues to have some great time together. Some carts are not that fast, others are but that just add to the funfactor to become the best driver on its challenging track!

Went on July 29, 2014. As stated in other reviews, the helmets are pretty gross, the visors are useless. Pick a helmet with no visor and wear your sunglasses. Rate is $20 per race. It's kind of funny, they have all these rules listed, but none of them are enforced. Flip flops are fine, hair not in helmet fine, no one uses a racing suit, no seat belts, no nothing, just get in the car they tell you to. The guy telling you the rules is a jerk, very heavily accented english, talked very fast. Had to ask about when we knew to stop racing and come back to pits, and he was a jerk. The karts ARE fast, and the track is long. My arms were tired at the end of race because you really have to horse the kart around when traveling fast. To get there, turn off main road to go to Lings and drive past it. Drive past lings to dirt road and track is on your left.

When driving up to the race track it may feel a little strange because of the off roading and the condition of the place. But once you get in there you won't regret it. It was a ton of fun. Loved the scenery it feels like you are on an abandoned race track in the middle if the desert. The track is an excellent track and the go carts are really fast so you are definitely getting your money's worth out if it. The service was ok it was kind if hard to understand the guy with there accent but the rules and the way they opperate are easy to understand and self explanatory. And how often do you get to go go carting on a tropical island in the middle of nowhere? So I would 100% recommend checking it out you will have a lot of fun

What a fun experience. These are real racing carts...no governors on these motors as they rip around the turns. You actually have to use your breaks or you will spin out. They equip you with a racing helmet and visor and give you plenty of time to race. The kids will love it, and the adults to. Moms may be nervous as they will let young ones drive alone. :)
