Silhouette Karts


Sunday 25 Feburary, 11:30am

That's Right, the WRX Club Go Kart Championship is back! 

Join us for Round 1, of our Go Karting Championship at Silhouette Karts - Melbourne's FASTEST karts.

ABOUT THE KARTS:

At Silhouette Karts we run 2-Stroke Racing Karts as our standard Kart.  The 2-Stroke engines we run offer many advantages over the 4-Strokes of our competitors including more power and revs and a higher top speed.

All our Karts are designed & manufactured in-house by the experienced team at Silhouette Karts.  Extensive on-track testing was done during development of our latest model to ensure a Kart which is more balanced during cornering and delivers a driving experience which we believe is unrivaled in the industry.

The engines are built & blueprinted to race specifications to get the most performance possible while still being reliable and with no governor’s they scream to around 12,000 RPM.

The Karts are maintained to a very high standard at all times by experienced Kart mechanics so that they are not only fast, but they handle well.  They use a heavy duty hydraulic brake system to safely slow them from high speeds and a centrifugal clutch to stop the engine from stalling to avoid any loss of time.

ABOUT THE TRACK:

The track at Silhouette Karts is outdoor and 600 metres in length.  It offers a wide smooth surface with plenty of opportunities for passing.  The exciting layout includes a 120 metre long straight, fast sweeping bends and tight hairpins to challenge even the more experienced drivers.
