90 Minute Sandown 500 Race Kart Adventure
As its namesake suggests, this race includes a relay endurance section. It begins with a short practice and time trial for grid positions and one race heat. This proceeds into a 30 minute relay race where teams of 2 people share one kart and fight for the trophy! After the relay, a Grand Final race is held for the top drivers from the first race heat. The winning duo will each receive a medallion and trophies will be awarded to 1 st, 2 nd and 3 rd place winners of the Final.
The purpose-built racing circuit features grading, sunken corners, a pit lane bridge, three long straights, fast sweepers, two tight and two wider hairpins, two switchbacks and much more.
A world class layout makes for exhilarating hot laps and a wonderful technical challenge for purists. Eager racers appreciate the many passing opportunities while joy-riders love the easiness of flowing around the track.
Of course we demand as much of our karts as you do. So we source the best components and our highly experienced race mechanics construct a fleet of high speed fireballs.
We are very proud of our latest fleet and we can now give you a behind-the-scenes look at how they are designed and built.
Length: 450 m
Lap Record: 27.3 s
Turn 1 is a long hairpin that allows a fairly high corner speed but is gridlock on the first turn of a race.
Turn 2 and 3 are fairly warm sweepers, watch for the turning radius decreasing into turn. Go in too hot and you'll get passed on the inside approaching
Turn 4 This corner turns through more than 180 degrees.
Turn 5 often needs some jostling with
Turn 6 providing a passing opportunity if your sequence through 4 and 5 is smooth.
Turn 7 forms a left right combination with
Turn 8, braking into 8 provides more opportunity for the racer.
Turn 9 is a quick sweep allowing some breathing room after the tight section however you must wash it all off again for
Turn 10. The balance between deep braking and setting up for good exit speed can make all the difference to lap times as 10 leads onto the first of the fast straights.
Turn 11 is a hot, long corner between two high speed sections, much like the Curva Grande at Monza. You should make it through on full throttle.
Turn 12 is whooping off the fast section in the north winding out onto the front straight. Like Turn 12 at Phillip Island this is a razor's edge corner that can make or break a hot lap. By the time you need to back off it might be too late. Final corner passes make for thrilling race results here.
Fortune favours the brave.
