Really sad indeed. Seeing these pictures bring back all the old memories. Used to spend a lot of time here, done so many races and mainly made some very good friends here.

I guess its not gone yet. I have heard it is being relocated to Hakone - the area behind Powai Plaza.

If this is true, then I am glad as Go karting is the "shaan" of Hiranandani, Powai.

Do you know if that track is built yet? I doubt it will be anywhere as good as the previous one tbh.

The track is bein shifted to the new hakone but it won't be as big or good as this one. BUT, they are building a bigger and better one in thane. That is what I was told.

Nopes, that area is too small. Plus it does not have any inclines. I dont think it will be as good as this one.

karting track in Hiranandani Powai is ready. Its right behind headrush paintball where the atv's used to be. Heard its not even half as good as the earlier one. Planning to go for a spin in the evening. Will give details later.

As the VP said, the new track is not that good. It is too small and lacks gradients. I would think twice before going there.
