Get On The Right Track With Your Squad At These Go Karting Arenas In Chennai

Arun posted on 24 January

Catch your racing dreams at three of the city’s only go karting tracks. While there aren’t too many options for go karting, these tracks are well maintained and a lot of fun to race around, especially when you bring along friends. Perfect for a weekend outing, go-karting makes for a fun activity to enjoy with your squad or fam. LBB makes a pitstop at the city’s best go-karting arenas so you can chase the chequered flag.

Marina Kart Arena

This 400 meter track just north of Marina Beach is the closest of the three to the heart of the city. Price wise, Marina Kart Arena is on par with the other two tracks in the city with the option of 12 laps or five minutes, both setting you back by INR 330. They’ve got 7 BHP single seater and twin seater karts and a smaller less powerful kids variant too. Being situated next to such a big tourist attraction {Marina Beach}, Marina Kart Arena sees its fair share of crowd over the weekends, so if you’re planning on going then, it’s best to call and book in advance.

Kart Attack

One of two tracks on ECR, Kart Attack is the oldest of the three. Not only that, its track is quite small coming in at around 260 meters. The upside is that it’s cheaper and has just as powerful carts as Marina Kart Arena. Five minutes on the track will set you back by INR 280, which is cheaper than Marina but it gets even cheaper when you opt for 10 minutes at INR 400. There’s twin karts and kids karts too. While Kart Attack may look a little run down thanks to its age, the laughs here are just as hard if you’re there with your squad.

LBBTip: Bring your own helmet if you can, the in house ones aren’t too clean.

ECR Speedway

The biggest of the three, ECR Speedway’s track has a customisable track that goes up to 630 meters! It’s also got the most range of karts to choose from — with a choice between 7/9/18/24 BHP karts for adults and 5 BHP karts for kids. In the past they’ve also functioned as a spring board for racers looking to turn pro, offering tournaments to participate in and contacts to meet through their motorsport backers. For us recreational folk, you can enjoy their quality service at approximately INR 400 for five minutes {9 BHP kart}. Situated just before the toll booth, this can be a great addition to a lazy drive down ECR.
