Ace Karts go karting in Melbourne is as close as you get to pro racing...

Ace Karts go karting in Melbourne is as close as you get to pro racing without a fireproof suit. Located just 20 minutes from the Melbourne CBD, our track captures the excitement of real racing. A series of intensifying bends will test the limits of your cornering skills. And a 105m straight will push your kart to its capacity. The Karts are capable of near-highway speeds, its finely-tuned Honda engine means you'll feel the Super Kart's awesome power at your feet. Book your drive online now.

Came 'over the ditch' to support my son race off for Corporate Box seats to F1 next weekend. A great night :-) I've been here before a couple times and enjoyed every visit. The staff are very welcoming and know what it takes to bring customers back again and again. The least intimidating 'race' environment I've been in yet the... More

A bunch of us girls booked an event here. It exceeded my expectations as it was clean, professional and had great technology that recorded and saved race and lap times. The Karts were fast and safe.The staff were professional & helpful. We will go again and easily recommend Ace Karts to friends.

Ace karts is a great racing centre. It might be a bit expensive but it is worth it! The karts are faster then other kart places. It makes the adrenaline pump but it's great!

Great fun I would recommend if you buy 30 minutes instead of doing all 30 minutes in one go do 2 lots of 15 so you get a break in between and check your times and see what you can work on for the next session. If you are an experienced go kart racer don't have too high expectations they... More

Came here with a couple of friends and had a lot of fun. There was a safety briefing before we went out on the track but it would have been nice to have some tips on how to drive fast through corners considering there are a lot of corners and I didn't really know whether to go wide or narrow...

Ten Stars for this amazing place and their staff. Always willing to go the extra step. They really look after the kids and drivers well fare. The cleanest go karts I have ever seen, the the track is impeccable. Always come here on school holidays even if it is an hour drive from home.

If you are a serious racer don't waste your time, they remotely slow your kart down and the experience is a real let down.
