Patels Inn is probably the only decent one inside the city.
Grips is the best in Bangalore as of now.
The new one at Bidadi has a lot more work left as Chetan said.
There is also a track at Planet X in mysore.. Had been there last week and it is awesome fun.. The track is made completely of concrete which means u cannot make the kart turn into the corners.. U have to drift into them and trust me it takes atleast 3-4 rounds of 10 laps each to get the hang of it.. It is super fun and i got addicted to the first drift karting track I've seen...

havent tried Patel's but heard from many that its good..
Grips on Mysore Road is very bad...

Agree with speedfreak7116 :- Planet X in Mysore is the best..

GRIPS would be ahead of NICE road entrance as well and just ahead of rajarajeshwari medical college. i was there just last weekend and spoke to the owner, by next month they are getting 4 HONDA powered karts which are quicker than the current 12bhp karts that they have.

Default Go-karting in Patel's Inn-RT nagar

I have been to Patel's Inn few times. I am physically disabled with my left leg afflicted with Polio, still I managed best lap time of 38 sec. I was told the record there is 30 sec. I would like to try and break that record. The feeling that comes to the mind is - how much more risk are you willing to take before the corner comes up and also looking out for the slow ones on the track. Everytime I go there, the next two days, its absolute body pain for the tremendous amount of strength required to turn at high speeds as the non-treaded tyres stick to the road very much and gets the going more touch as they heat up. I also drove once in the rain and it was all wet driving. I spinned all 180 deg first 2 rounds, then got the hand of it by just turning the steering half of what was normally required on a normal day and let the rear end skid and swing into place. Its tough, but the experience is superb. I have been trying to get my friends at my workplace to come along for the last 6 years, but haven't succeeded. But I will try until I succeed. Just watching it, they feel the money goes down the drain in such a short time, but only when the drive it do they experience the real thrill. They may have driven cars for many years, but GO-KARTING IS DIFFERENT.

Default sleep maketh so many spell disasters

I was quite asleep when i was typing in my experiences at the RT nagar GO-KART centre. Lots of spell mistakes got in and just now when I was going through the paragraph, I was bewildered at the mistakes. Really sorry to all of my friends who have read and are going to read my experiences.
Regards

Having been to Patel's Inn for over 5yrs I can vouch that the condition of the karts there is quite terrible the last time I visited. Of the lot, I think grips is the best. I hear there is one track coming up somewhere near Marathalli.

Haven't been to Grips yet.And i've never liked the carts in Patels Inn. I have been to this place called Circuit 500. Not too sure with the name. Dunno if the place still exits. Its near marathalli (close to trinity acres).
I can never forget the place as i burnt my forearm after placing it on the engine.

Its been 6 years and i still have the marks.

I've seen a track at E Zone Club (near Marathalli), not sure if you were referring to this one. But the last time I checked (2 weeks back), it was nowhere near completion.

Yes, I was referring to the same. Any idea when its going to be completed?

If people are very keen on karting on a professional track with good karts, I guess something can be done about it at the Kari track, Coimbatore. Let me just look around and find out what I can come up with.

Patels inn has got a nice tracks with good corners.

Even the Karts are decent.

We visit this place very often as this is the only track that's avlble within the city.

Planet-X mysore is the best one i've seen.

Got a great surface and decent Karts.

And the drift is also great at Planet X

GRIPS need to check them.
