Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit Go Kart Track is over 750 metre long, 8 metre wide and is based on the replica of the 4.445km world famous Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit.

The smooth curves and super-fast straight of this unique Go Kart track are strung along some of the most breathtaking coastline on the Island with rolling hills, rugged cliffs, and ocean to horizon views.

This is your chance to get the feeling that so many past and present champions have had the privilege of. Feel the speed of turn 1, check out the ocean views around southern loop, good passing opportunity into a tight turn 4, sweeping corner around Siberia and the sudden drop off from Lukey Heights into MG corner and back onto the main straight. This scale replica go kart track is the only one like it in Australia and will give you and your friends a go kart experience like no other.

The Go Kart fleet are for general public hire and are an imported French made Sodi RT8 Evo2 Go Kart. Our Sodi 2Drive Tandem Go Karts also allow the whole family to enjoy the fun together. The Go Kart track is positioned in what is known as the "Trackside Campground" and overlooks the southern portion of the Grand Prix Circuit and out over the cliffs to Bass Strait. The Go Kart track operates year round excluding the period for the MotoGP where the track reverts back to operating as a campground. 


Driving Hints:

To complete your fastest lap on the Phillip Island Go Kart track, the idea is to drive the shortest distance as quickly as possible. To achieve this you need to flatten the corners out as much as possible while maintaining your highest possible terminal speed.

To “flatten” a corner out you must maximise the Entry, Apex and Exit points.

Example Turn 1:

Approach from the far left of the main straight (Entry Point). Turn in and aim your right front wheel at the inside of the corner (Apex Point). Drive through the corner and let the Go Kart drift out to the far left edge of the track (Exit Point).

Other key corners include Turn 4, 6 & 10. Of course, if the track is wet then these lines change altogether. Practice is the key to a good lap time and our Go Kart staff are always happy to give you a few extra pointers!
