The Karting Arena Jurong


Traffic rules are aplenty. Stop at the red lights, look out for pedestrians and of course, no flooring the pedal on the road – you’ll be fast, but the traffic police will be furious. So here’s some good news for speed demons: not only does Singapore host the annual F1 race but we also have a number of go-karting and virtual racing arenas.

The Karting Arena Jurong is where you can chase thrilling speeds without risking demerit points and speeding tickets. Now that The Karting Arena in Bukit Timah is closing down, this 53,000 square feet go-kart facility is the go-to place to chase your F1 driver dreams. That’s the size of roughly three football fields btw. Prices start from $25/session and you don’t need a driver’s license to participate.


Race top-of-the-line karts through 11 track turns

Go-karts are one way to live out your GTA, Need For Speed or Herbie dreams. Let loose at The Karting Arena Jurong with their fleet of speedy BirelArt petroleum go-karts. Pros may recognise these as top-of-the-line in the industry, flexing some of the safest and lightest karts available.

700M-long tracks with 11 twists and turns to navigate around.

Consider this a step up from your Daytona days: Other than feeling the wind in your hair, the track is also large enough to fit up to 30 people to race at one go, thanks to their super-wide >10m track width. 


Speeds of up to 50km/h with single and double seater karts

Adrenaline junkies won’t be disappointed here with their Fun Karting Experience. Go on a whirlwind ride around the tracks at speeds of up to 30km/h, or 50km/h if you’ve got a driver’s license to show. Sessions are priced from $25/pax for 10 minutes, which gives you roughly 10-12 laps around the track.

Other than the single karts, there’ll also be double seaters (from $45/pax) with one dummy wheel, perfect for parent-child duos. These karts will only be available later this year so stay tuned to their website for more information.

Other safety measures include barriers similar to the ones installed into F1 circuits, CCTVs around the track and a remote stop master control system that can stop all the go-karts on track in case of an emergency.
