Karting fans and enthusiasts among families and friends now have a new home at the EKartRaceway at SM City North Edsa. Located at the third floor of SM City North Edsa’s City Center, the EkartRaceway is the country’s first all-electric indoor go cart racing experience. With a circuit covering an area of 2,091 square meters, the multi-level 300m-plus track was designed by seasoned professional drivers and designers from around the world to ensure racers to have the best experience possible.
It has 13 high speed straightaway and technical corners with different turning radius, speed and elevations, giving an awesome competitive karting experience to its racers.
“EKartRaceway was inspired by many passionate race car drivers and aficionados,” shares EKartRaceway founder David Hsu. “We had decided this venue will not just be another entertainment center with safe, serious fun for the whole family and motor heads, but also a sifting ground to discover the hidden gems of many young Pinoys’ natural talents. These are those that never had the chance to become a race car driver due to the lack of opportunity and easy access to a track.”
EKartRaceway offers the latest in electric go karting technology with a fleet of 24 state-of-the-art BSR (Blue Shock Race) karts. These feature many proprietary advanced safety systems, with speed up to 90 km/h. Every kart is equipped with a safety harness and a roll bar. All karts use the latest innovations in technology to deliver the best go karting experience in the world.
Indoor go karting is safer than most sports. EkartRaceway supplies every racer with a DOT-approved helmet. Tracks are professionally designed to maximize speed and safety, and are accompanied by “impact absorbent” proprietary barrier systems.
If needed and in case of emergency, EkartRaceway management has the ability to stop all the karts remotely with the touch of a button. EkartRaceway is committed to excellence, and to provide a venue of safe and serious fun assuring that all racers are in good hands.
