Default Hiranandani Go-Karting: what are your lap times?

Hey guys! The Hiranadani Go-Karting track is the most popular circuit in Mumbai. So i thought why not have a thread where everyone who's been there, post their lap-times?
I have been to the track several times. Today was the fastest i had driven. I clocked the circuit in 30.33sec with an average speed of 45kph.

So go ahead BHPians, post your lap times here!


@Mods, i couldn't find any thread on this, so created one.

EDIT: I'm even attaching my lap times.

Hello. .
I stay close by and have done this few times. I remember my best being around 30 secs something . . Great place indeed. Timiings sure do add to the motivation to drive properly than just skid around and have fun. It indeed is great fun to take the turn in the incline as fast as possible.

Cool, they are giving out Vanguards again. Last time I went during the rains on a weekend, so no Vanguard. Clocked 29.8x on the regular kart, Honda I think.

Do we have an option to choose between vanguards and regular Honda karts? How do we differentiate between the two?

Isn't it the only karting track in Mumbai?? Somehow, i've never been there, ever! Had been to the other places in Mumbai which have since closed.

Anway after looking at all the bhpians talking about karting at Hakone, how about a meet there? Wot Say?

There was another track at Acres Club in Chembur, but I heard its either shut down or its cut short. That track was very very quick. 20second laps

Acres Club track is very small in comparision to Hakone. Also the carts were not that good. I have been there long time back.

@Cyrus: Is there a track in Andheri. Near International Airport. I think some race events used to happen there.

That track had closed down 2-3 years back. Acres club is now smaller than a parking lot. Only saving grace is Hakone.

Clocked 29.55 on the Honda kart and 28.53 on the Vanguard, yesterday. If I can lose 10 kgs I can probably break into the 27s.
