Did you know that Kyiv is home to several indoor and outdoor go-kart tracks? Here are some of the best, as recommended by What’s On Kiev.
Zhazhda Skorosti (Need for Speed) (Hlushkova 9, M Hippodrome)
Near Ice Stadium and the recently opened Hippodrome metro station, this open air track has 12 different driving routes and nine horsepower karts.
Blockbuster Karting Centre (Moskovskiy 34b, M Petrivka)
Blockbuster also offers nine horsepower karts but treats racers to two tracks, one indoor and one outdoor. Feel the G-forces as you fly across the tarmac!
Hydropark Karting (M Hydropark)
Perfect for beginners, Hydropark is an easier track with a cheaper cost. The karts have 6.5 horsepower and the outdoor track is shaded by trees so you won’t get overheated.
Terminal Karting Centre (Kyivska 316, Terminal Mall, M Lisova)
Racing can go down year round at this indoor track which also has 6.5 horsepower karts. There are two tracks with high speed sections, bridges, steep slopes and sharp turns.
Forza Karting (Naberezhno-Luhova 23, M Tarasa Shevchenko)
With a narrow indoor track and multiple levels, Forza Karting is a true test of driving skills. Tournaments and championships are often held here and kids karting classes are also available.
Chaika Karting (Chaika Stadium)
Chaika Karting offers a wider outdoor track with three horsepower choices – Nine and 13 horsepower karts for adults and 4.5 horsepower karts for kids.
