Go-Karting?

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by Bond Girl, Jul 10, 2005.

  1. After a recent fun night of Go-Karting at Sidetracked in Huntingdale who looked after us tremendously they have offered some great prices for group bookings. They have a whole range of things to do for kids as well as adults. So I was wondering if there was enough interest for an organised event?

  2. There is always interest from alot of people right up to the point where people need to pay for it.

    We've tried to orgy-nize a couple of go-kart days and have gotten bugger all interest. It may very well be the price that puts people off *shrug*

    Now that was all a year or so ago things may have changed.

    I'd be in it. The Sandown package looks the goods, I've no interest in the laserforce games.

  9. If only the tracks were the same layout as some of the major tracks that are in use today.

    When I was in Sepang for the F1 they have a gokart track next to the circuit and it is the same layout.

    Damn bloody shame that it fully booked out by the fat arsed corporates for the entire race week :(

  11. There are sooooooooooo many lines I could use right now, but I just cant think of the best one to use :p

    Those laser games are fun, especially if someone turns up wearing white. Really makes em stick out under the UV blue lighting they use in there.

    and you get to shoot your friends, which for some strange reason I really enjoyed doing :wink:

  12. Re: [Melb] Go-Karting!

    Why sidetracked? It's really quite a poor track with slow go-karts, with lots of better one's around Melb. If your going to do it, I say do it on a better track with better karts.

  16. Sidetracked corporate/group rate is $24.20 per head (booked in advance with a deposit) & they gave us a 2nd round for $15 per head based on 7 people! Seemed very affordable for most people. As a single mum $55 would want to get me a really good session. Huntingdale was easily accessible on a mid-week night, for most folk!
