Though gunning your car down a stretch of highway and feeling the wind in your hair can be a thrilling experience, it’s often ruined by the radio; playing annoying ads for cellphone companies, irritating songs or safety announcements warning motorists against someone gunning down the highway. Keep your thrills ad-free and pay R25 for ten laps of go-carting at Epic Karting.
Unless you’ve figured out a way to turn your vehicle into an amusement park, the most fun you can legally have in a car is definitely going to be gunning a few laps on Epic Karting’s Amanzimtoti racing track. A circuit without speed limits, designed for the speed and challenge, it’s the perfect place to test your skills dodging pillars and prove to the masses that the Epic Karting’s records can be broken.The latest imported karts, with Honda engines, provide the perfect literal and metaphorical vehicle for zooming around pillars in the car park of the Galleria mall – ideal for those who like a bit of a velocity with their oxygen. Each kart is also fitted with a state of the art AMB TransX timing transponder as used in 24 Hours of Le Mans, NASCAR, IRL, MotoGP, World Super bikes, Champ Car World Series and Shanghai F1 Circuit – allowing them to clock and create a printout of your lap times, giving you something tangible to brag with and a reason to add some haste to your laps. No matter the weather, the course is always open and under cover to ensure that racers can get their fix any time, any day of the week. Challenge whoever is closest to a cheek-flapping ten laps and try not to laugh too hard when they’re left in your dust.
