Yes they are finally here. The Ricciardo Karts promise to bring a new level of excitement and competition to Xtreme Karting. Powered by twin GX270 10hp Honda engines and equipped with a competition high performance rear disc brake system these karts are speed limited to a maximum of 100 kilometres per hour. You can expect to lap the Xtreme circuit in around 1 minute 14 seconds on average with more skilled drivers doing even better. The Ricciardo karts will be used to race the Assassin Series in 2017
Given the speed of these karts you will have to qualify and meet restrictions to drive these machines.
To drive a Riccardo kart, you must have competed in at least 2 Super Enduro Rounds or completed a minimum of 16 x 10 minute sessions of the Xtreme circuit. Your driving record at Xtreme must be clean and you must have recorded a lap time on the Xtreme Circuit of 1 minute and 25 seconds. Physically you must be a MINIMUM 140CM TALL and aged over 16 years of age.
The cost to drive the R1 Ricciardo Karts will include an annual licence fee of $50 which gets you access to the Xtreme Race Team
Once the licence fee is paid:
1 session $50
2 session $95
3 session $140
Extra sessions after 3 sessions will cost $35 per session. While there is no limit on how many extra sessions you can do on the day availability will be limited and depend on the daily Session traffic. Ricciardo Kart Sessions will always be run separately from our normal GT5 Hire kart sessions.
