Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit’s new fleet of single and tandem Go Karts have taken to the track ahead of their launch to the public this Saturday (31st October).
The 27 new single karts will replace the current fleet introduced in 2017, and the 10 new tandem karts will take over from the existing karts launched in 2014.
With 9 horsepower Honda GX 270cc engines, the French-made karts provides an ultimate karting sensation and are tested to meet the stringent Australian standards
The RT8 Evo2 single karts can reach up to 65k/mph and feature a high front blade for greater safety and a roll bar with all-round protection to avoid wheel-to-wheel contact. While the harness seatbelt and easy to use seat adjusters allow for greater comfort and custom fitting.
Including the same safety and protection measures as the single karts, the 2Drive tandem karts allow the whole family to get involved as the twin seats provide children the thrill of go karting. The dual steering allows children to get involved while under the safety and supervision of an adult driver.
“We’re thrilled to see these top-of-the-range karts now on track. They look fantastic and will provide our customers an incredible experience. A lot of work has gone into getting them from France, and now on track ready for the public, and we can’t wait to see our customers enjoying them. The arrival of the karts has aligned perfectly with the re-opening of Victoria and we’re excited to welcome everyone back to the venue”.
Said Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit General Manager, David Bennett.
Phillip Island Go Karts is the ultimate karting destination, the smooth curves and super-fast straight of the unique track are strung along some of the most breathtaking coastline on the Island.
