Shah alam, Sunway extreme park, Port Dickson, but need a group of minimum 8 for a go, otherwise need to wait for others to join in a group  :Blue:

Am not into go-karting but judging from this thread, I counted 5 or 6 members who are keen on go karting.
(ancs88, siodee, watchmanu, takashi, chris)
Maybe the TS can organise one go-kart session for MWF members, once the quorom of 8 pax is met.

Nope, just that depend on weekday or weekend, if nobody queue up, even you are alone, they still let you go, cause Business ma, unless weekend or public holiday, then they are very strict. We can try Sunway  :Dancing_banana:

The Shah Alam track is very nice, flat and lots of interesting turns!

We can do the Shah Alam track, just next to the "Sea Hum" Stadium, I think is like RM35 for 10min. If go for 100cc, then different price tag, more expensive. What do you guys think???

We will have the Go-kart at Shah Alam then. I will create a session there after this coming Sunday Charity run, so not confusing members for different activities.  ;D

You can get those gloves at Jusco or Carrefour or Tesco under sports section. They do sell gym gloves as well as motorcycle gloves. Else the motorcycle shop which sells accesories.
