Our Go Karts are also fitted with individual timing transponders, so you can receive all your lap times, down to 1/1000th of a second!! Whether you want to come down on your own and set a hot lap, race a few friends, organise a bucks party, birthday party or corporate event Slideways Go Karting World have got you covered on the Gold Coast.
We import our Sodi Karts direct from Europe because we believe they are the “Mercedes Benz” of hire karts. No other manufacturer has the same quality and reliability to perform! Fitted with a 9HP Honda engines, our karts are guaranteed to perform, propelling you up to 70kph in no time, which is the fastest legal speed for hire karts, but believe us, that’s pretty quick when you are racing side by side with your mates on our challenging layout!
