Go Kart Track:
The Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit has a 720-metre track exclusively reserved for go-karting. This track is a miniature, but scaled replica, of the amazing Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit track. It overlooks the Bass Strait and offers a panoramic view of the rugged coastline with adrenaline-filled adventure.
Visitors can personalise their go-karting experience by recording their lap time and comparing it with that of their friends. Furthermore, visitors coming in a group can opt for tailor-made packages that allow them to organise group races.
Hot Lap is one of the best features of the Grand Prix Circuit. This round can only be taken along with an experienced racer. For the Hot Lap, the driver is strapped with a 5-point harness in a GT3 Porsche which can go from 0 to 100 km per hour in just 3.8 seconds!
The guided circuit tour is a simulated version of the racing experts where visitors get access to the restricted areas, such as Race Control. Here, they get an opportunity to get behind the scenes of the Grand Prix and the events of major racing. The most interesting part of this guided tour is ‘Shake the Champagne’ where visitors get to open the champagne bottle like any other Grand Prix event. These tours take place between 11 am and 2 pm everyday. The tour lasts for 45 minutes, but every single second is enthralling and entertaining.
