Tip: For beginners, the best way to enter a corner with speed is by following the ‘racing line,’ where you enter the turn from the outside line, hitting the inner part of the corner called the apex, and exiting at the outside line again.

P.S. For all you speed enthusiast, City Kart Racing is holding it’s biggest racing event of the year and everyone is welcome to join

Media Invite

City Kart will be launching it’s first major competition for the year, “Race to Boracay”, expecting more than 500 drivers to vie for the title of the “fastest driver”. That could possibly become the biggest motorsports event in the country.

The competition involves four stages. First is the qualifying round where all participants will be given five chances to come up with their best lap time. This will determine their entry for the pre-final round, which will accommodate 200 drivers. From there, 50 drivers will be chosen to take part in the finale. The top ten will then go on and race for the title of the “fastest driver”.

There will be 2 categories, the juniors (13 to 17 years old) and the adults (18 years old and above). Awaiting the winners of each category at the finish line is a 3-day-20-night hotel certificate and round trip airfare for two to Boracay. Special treats are also in store for the two runners up, while other drivers will get a chance to win goodies in the raffle.

app

When you’re the competitive type, City Kart Makati app is available for download in IOS and Android.  The CKR’s state-of-the-art timing system records lap times up to a thousand second, with guaranteed precision! You can have fun comparing your speed, stat and ranking with fellow racers.

Schedule of activities for Race to Boracay:

October 23 – November 14: Qualifying rounds (any day except Saturday and Sunday afternoon)

November 22: Pre Finale

November 23: Finale, grand finale, awarding and raffle

Entry fee is priced at P3900, which includes five qualifying round. Early birds who register before October 17 will get one free practice run.
