KF1 Karting Circuit in Kranji

Nothing beats the pleasure of beating your friends in a game of Mario Kart. But what if we told you that there’s an IRL way for you to reign champion once and for all? 

If you’re up for the challenge, head down to KF1 Karting Circuit that’s right beside Singapore Turf Club for a day of adrenalines and races.

Dual-directional track designed by F1 circuit experts

The circuit at KF1 isn’t like your typical go-karting one – it’s designed by the famous F1 circuit specialist, Hermann Tilke, so you’re getting the real deal here. To give riders a feel of F1 racing, you can expect 18 different turns on the tracks.

Oh, and did we mention, it’s Singapore’s largest go-karting circuit and the world’s only dual-directional track? Riders can explore this 980m-long track from either direction, or choose to race 2 different routes when the circuit splits into half.

With the track being over 7m wide, you’ve got ample room to speed up to overtake your friends. But do be mindful, we don’t want any injuries. All riders have to go through a pre-safety briefing beforehand so everyone knows the dos and don’ts on the circuit.

For added safety, the track is lined with Tecpro barriers AKA high density foam blocks to cushion any crashes. End the race with a cool finish as you pull into some F1 style team garages to park your kart.

Drive your kart up to 50km/h

If you’re new to go-karting, don’t worry. As part of their novice package, KF1 offers Viper karts that are beginner-friendly and only go up to 30km/h. But for the speed junkies, you won’t be missing out either. Drive the 50km/h Birel kart when you choose the advanced combo and hold a car or motorbike license.

Even if it’s pouring, rest assured that you can still have a go at the circuit. The petrol karts here are actually built to withstand rain. So, no need to cancel on any karting plans when you see dark clouds hovering.

You’re probably going to break a sweat as you race so do come in comfy clothing. The place also provides helmets and hairnets, but feel free to bring your own one too. 

*All guests must wear covered shoes if they’re go-karting.
