Default Go-karting in bangalore just got better:Location for our next meet!

Scouting through the newspaper today and i found this!

Torq03 - Gokarting


Located in Maratahalli inside E-Zone club and spread across one and a half acres of land, Torq03 is the best karting track in the city. The track contains varied types of turns and straights to give the karting enthusiast a rich experience.
The tarmac surface is made of asphalt giving a true racing feel to the drive due to the extra grip. A length of 440m and a mix of 4 U-turns, 1 medium speed chicane, 190 degree turn, 1 right-handed loop and a long high speed section make sure ...


This is Brilliant!Will start planning this soon,though i would request the mods to close the thread untill the yelagiri drive is done with,

Looks like the website says there is only one 26Hp Kart. So how are we supposed to compete against someone in this segment.

Any idea about the speed this kart can manage?

Hi guys,

Cool. I've been wondering when some decent Go-Karting track will be in Bangalore.

There was one at Palace Grounds and it closed down, Reason- Unknown to me

Speezone was too far but good one at that .. but that too closed.

So I used to go to Planet X @ Mysore where they have a cemented track and lots of fun to drive and race

Let's decide on the meet @ this place and have a competition..that should be fun...

Cheers
