The Go-Kart racing circuit in the east of Riga features 20 go-karts with neat 9 HP and 10 go-karts with 13 HP engines - tuned explicitly for outdoor go-kart racing. The 13 HP engines allow you to reach higher average speeds than in any other Latvian go-kart circuit. This superb karting circuit offers high-speed straights followed by challenging, technical corners. The course is 1.2 km (0.75 mi) long, varying from 8 to 10 m (26 to 32 ft.) in width. Transfer to the track will take about 30 minutes. Before the ride, you will hear instructions on how to drive with a go-kart. Also, you will get a helmet and gloves. You will get 8 minutes hands-on driving, but if it is not enough, you can extend to 16 minutes or 1 hour of the race. After the race, you will get printouts to see who the fastest driver was.
Please note that drivers may be breathalyzed on arrival at the circuit. If you fail to pass, you will be unable to drive, and you lose your deposit.
• The sports complex, just 25 km away from Riga city centre is a paradise for active sports lovers, including us, the team of Red Fox Tours. It offers so many activities that it would not be enough with one full day to do everything. No matter summer or winter, you won`t regret choosing this place as a base for a fun day outside of Riga.
It has the most modern go-kart track (actually, two go-kart tracks) in the Baltic countries. In total, the park has 50 go-karts for adults and children. Riga outdoor go-karting is an excellent activity for everyone – couples, stag do groups, cooperative events. You can book anything from 8 min single race to 1 hour Grand Prix or 8 hours Le Mans style night race. You can also choose between different go-karts. The powerful RT8 has 13HP and reaches speed up to 85 km/h (we can offer 10 such go-karts in total). SR5 go-karts are a little bit less powerful (9HP) but still can reach speed up to 65 km/h (we can offer 20 such go-karts in total). For families with kids, we can also provide 5HP go-karts with a maximum speed of 45 km/h. These go-karts are suitable for children 7 to 11 of age with a height of 135cm-145m. In total, we can offer 4 such go-karts. For those looking for something fun and extraordinary, we can provide a two-seat go-kart which has two steering wheels and one pair of pedals. Before the ride, you can choose who will be in charge of accelerator and brakes. Then you decide who`s in charge of steering. The other steering wheel will be switched off. You choose between two options – either you have a crazy ride to `impress` your passenger or you both work as a team to do the drive as smooth and fast as you both can. The two-seat go-kart has 13HP, and the maximum speed is 85 km/h. If there is a person who has a birthday or if there is a stag, you can arrange a surprise. Take a two-seat go-kart where the driver is a professional pilot who will make sure that your friend will have enough adrenaline for the rest of the day. Please do inform us in advance if you like to book a two-seat go-kart with a professional pilot.
OK, but what about winter? Is the track closed for winter? The answer is NO! Once we get enough snow, we offer winter go-kart rides on a track. If ice is thick enough, the ice track (made on a frozen lake) is ready to accept those looking for something unique. On both tracks are used the same 9HP go-karts. If ice is not thick enough, go-karts are equipped with winter tires good for snow track. Once the ice is thick enough, winter tires are changed to ones with spikes which are perfect to slide/drift in curves of ice go-kart track smoothly.
