MOMBASA GO KART
Karting is a track racing event with small, rear-engined, 4 wheeled vehicles. Many rally and formula drivers started with karting, notably Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton. It is suitable for all age groups but you must be at least 10 years old and 1.47 mts (4 ft 6 in) to race at full speed (for those who don't qualify the kart's maximum speed can be reduced to 10 km/hr). Helmets are mandatory and are provided at no additional cost. There is a computer controlled timing system which provides pilots with their lap times displayed on a monitor in the pit area.
The concrete track is about 500 mts long and 5 mts wide. A maximum of 14 go karts are allowed on the track. A 20 KVA floodlit system enables night racing.
