City Kart Racing, First Indoor Go Kart in the Philippines!

After the race.

This was my first time to try out Go Karting and I loved it! It is a great team building session that somehow simulates how it feels to race in a F1 circuit. (Ok, that might be an over statement but you need to imagine that you are in one to get the best experience :)

To tell you frankly, I was hesitant to try Go Kart and I can't understand what's the fuss about this. It is fortunate that Jeff, a French guy, decided to open City Kart, the first indoor Go Kart and most technically advanced in the Philippines, 4 months ago. Aside from being indoor, the City Kart circuit have an outdoor portion and an elevated track to go on a second level. It also boasts of a higher standard of safety better than any of our Go Kart racing circuit. This was highly recommended by my friend, Jovy, a passionate racer.

We had definitely had fun! I was already getting the hang of it during the third race that I'm more confident to turn into the tricky corners at high speed of maybe 50-60kph. Of course, what is a Go Kart without its racing suit and helmet. What a memorable experience for my team!

This is still a secret for most people and only popular to racers. You would normally see this on the right side (if you are going to Alabang) along the service road in between the Bicutan and Sucat exit of South Super Highway. Here's more of our experience.

This is a snapshot of the track. I love going up and down that ramp and it is quite unique where the circuit has an elevated portion.

Here is a view of the canteen/ reception area from the main control point in the track.

All of us are first time racers so Jeff personally taught us how to operate the Go Karts. He also explained to us the Safety Rules and Regulation of City Kart. He put particular emphasis on the yellow flag/ yellow flashing which signifies danger and the blue flag telling you to give way to a faster person behind you.

The balaclava is the racing mask you have to wear before putting on the helmet.

We had a practice lap for 10 minutes to get us comfortable with the Karts. Then, a qualifying round for another 10 minutes. After the qualifying race, we were put on a racing grid based on our best time in the qualifying round. It was such a fun race and I finished 5th!
