The Go Kart racing circuit in the east of Riga features 16 go-karts with neat 9 HP and 13 HP engines - specifically tuned for outdoor go-kart racing allowing 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 circuit 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 of how to drive with go-kart. Also you will get overalls, helmet and gloves. You will get 10 minutes hands-on driving, but if it is not enough for you, time can be extended to 15, 20, 30 minutes or 1 hour of race. After the race you will get printouts to see who fastest driver was.
Notes: - Drivers may be breathalysed on arrival at the circuit. If you fail to pass you will be unable to drive and a refund will not be given.
The sports complex, which is located 25 km away from Riga city center is a paradise for an active sports lovers, including us, the team of Red Fox Tours. It offers so much 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 Baltic countries. In total they have a park of 30 go karts. Riga out door go karting is a great activity for everyone – couples, stag do groups, cooperative events. You can book anything from 10 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 offer 5HP go karts with a maximum speed 45 km/h. These go karts are good for children 7 to 11 of age with the height of 135cm-145m. In total we can offer 4 such go karts. For those looking for something fun and extraordinary we can offer 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 choose who`s in charge of steering. The other steering wheel will be switched off. Basically 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 maximum speed is 85 km/h. If there is a person in your group who has a birthday or if there is a stag, you can take a two seat go kart where driver is a professional pilot who will make sure that your friend will have enough adrenaline for the rest of the day. 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 ice is thick enough, winter tires are changed to ones with spikes which are perfect to smoothly slide/drift in curves of ice go kart track.
