Ricciardo Karts

An Awesome Xperience!: COMING IN SEPTEMBER!

The XTREME Ricciardo karts here at XTREME KARTING are based on the N35-GT rental kart manufactured by Birel Art .  They weigh in at 145kg, which is lighter than all the competitors in the market. The reduced weight helps the fuel consumption and increase tyre life. It also reduces the maintenance and running costs as well as ensuring greater reliability.

The Ricciardo Karts are speed limited to 100 KLM per hour and powered by 2 X GX270 10HP HONDA engines.  Fitted with HIGH PERFORMANCE REAR DISC BRAKES and competition clutches these karts are capable of lapping the 1.6klm Xtreme Circuit in sub 1 minute 14 second lap times.  They will deliver an exciting hire kart experience available no where else but here at Xtreme Karting Pimpama.

NOTE: Lap times will vary depending on weight of driver, track temperature and tyres.
