The karts have been developed since 1987 in New Zealand by the creator Peter Zyp with one goal in mind; to drift.

The karts are safe and built for tough use and they consist of powerful engines and a unique design, they can race around the track sliding where they can drift around corners.

Me checking out the Blastacar Drift kart before racing, to see if I can handle it comfortably. Not to be confused with the regular go karts, these are hand crafted, powerful karts that drift on purpose built, indoor tracks. These custom made to drift karts offer you a unique and thrilling drive experience. The karts are longer and thinner than a go kart, allowing for a comfortable ride position and easier overtaking and the unique surface mean you can drift and slide around the track whilst maintaining control. Steering and handling the karts is surprisingly easy and not as tiring on the arms and legs like a go kart, as you only need to speed up all the way.

The track has a unique slippery surface and custom design, built for over 10 karts to race on at once. The track is fully indoors, so you can race in rain or shine, day or night.

All set for a heart pumping race, helmet and all.

Blastacar Drift Kart Racing at Sungei Wang Plaza

A word of warning; Don’t think you can just hold your accelerator around the whole track. There is enough power and momentum to send your karts sliding into corners. You will need to give a good amount of counter steer and throttle control to ensure you can maintain the drift on a corner and then with a quick switch you will be drifting into the next. For a non racer and casual driver like me, putting up a good race is quite a challenging feat, but it was an Adrenaline pumping experience nevertheless.

One for the album. My friends and I had an exciting race experience with a solid performing engine more powerful than an average go kart.
