Darwin Kart Hire Racing Rules

Our friendly and experienced staff are dedicated to providing you with a fun, adrenalin pumping experience on each and every one of your visits, however, to ensure the safety of all patrons we do have some rules and conditions that must be followed:

  • Enclosed shoes must be worn
  • You can wear shorts or long pants (racesuits)
  • Hairnets must be worn when using Darwin Kart Hire helmets
  • Visor must be closed or eye protection is worn while on the track

  • No contact between karts – excessive contact is unsafe and your session will be terminated with no refund
  • You must keep both hands on the steering wheel and feet on the floor plate at all times
  • You must remain on the track – driving through the gravel safety traps can damage the karts, jam the brakes or stick the throttle, if you drive into a gravel trap you will be called into the pit and the kart will be inspected before you can continue.
  • If your kart is damaged from collision you will be called back to the pits and your session will be terminated

  • Passing slower karts on the track is allowed if there is no contact, bumping, pushing or cutting off other karts
  • Any person that vomits in their helmets will be required to purchase the helmet at a cost of $120. If you start to feel sick return to the pits or stop on the side of the track and raise your hand
  • Abuse or harassment of staff will not be tolerated


The challenge is to do the fastest lap times you can by learning the ‘Racing Lines’ and controlling the kart while pushing your limits. Darwin Kart Hire Staff are always willing to give you guidance to help you improve your lap times while you hone your Kart Control Skills. Being completely in control while the kart is on the limit of traction is an exhilarating feeling
