When we think of go karting in the city, the first, (and only) place that comes to mind is the track in Powai inside Hakone Entertainment. But, why go that far when you now have an option closer to home? Ajmera IndieKarting in Wadala has constructed a mean ‘ol race track for the likes of us, but what makes it so special, you ask? Well, regular race tracks are made from concrete, which doesn’t help much while maneuvering, so keeping that in mind, they’ve made the widest track in the region using tar, which helps you swerve and make the right moves, apart from being safer.
The track is wide enough to host national level FMSCI sanctioned go-karting races. But the thing that gave us the feels was that this track was made to cut down people racing on the streets and indulge in something that is safe. So you now have the chance to go wild right in the heart of the city – the go karting track is spread across a whopping 8,00,000 sq. feet of space and is 410 meters long - making it exclusively designed for speed. Think the rains can be a bummer? Thanks to the tar track (which helps with a good grip), you can speed your way across one point to another and race against friends or foes; it’s your pick.
The arena is open from Monday to Friday (2:30 PM to 10:30 PM) and on the weekends as well from 10:30 AM to 11:00 PM. The prices range from INR 299 to INR 649 on weekdays and INR 349 to INR 749 on weekends for 3, 5, or 8-minute slots. Pretty reasonable for all the thrill it gives us, no?
