    Default New Go Kart Track In Calgary Opening

    Apparently these guys are opening a new indoor go-kart track here in Calgary toward the end of this year.

    http://www.speeders.ca/

    The Track is going to be located up near the Deerfoot outlet mall. It should be a a similar facility to what they have in Edmonton.

    As I understand it, they are electric karts. Has anyone gone to the Edmonton track? Any reviews or feedback?

    It should be far superior to the one and only public track we have here in Calgary.

    Also, because it is indoors there will be karting all year round.

    If its as good as Speedworld is in Winnipeg then I'm stoked.

    Not sure about the electric carts tho, I'll have to try them.

    I've been to the edmonton location, it's pretty fun. Track is a little too short though. The electric carts are decent, after a couple visits they let you max them out (around 70km\h i think) the first time you go though I think the carts are limited to 50km\h. Gas carts are still more fun.

    I've been to the edmonton one a couple times. Only gripes is the track is kinda short, and IMO a bit on the expensive side.

    I've been lots to the one in Edmonton, lots of fun and enjoy going there, just pretty pricey.

    Best deal is Monday / Tuesday buy 2 get 1 free, so 3 races for 40$

    Laps are 22 seconds a lap and you get 14 laps, so ~18 minutes total racing for 40$

    Weekends are ridiculously busy, your looking at 1 race every hour or hour and a half unless you book as a group.

    You can book a grand prix for 8 or more people, but its more $ than booking the races individually (mainly because you get priority and can do all the races in a hour rather than half a day sort of thing)

    Its fun going with friends, just $ adds up fast. You could easily do 10 races in 2 hours if its not that busy and drop 100-150$

    But for the beyond ballers, itll be alright

    Awesome! Better than what we have now that's for sure. Every time I visit Edmonton I make a point to hit up Speeders. Is a little heavy on the wallet but carts are decent enough. I hope they have late hours.

    I've played around with the electric karts.... HOLY FUCKING SHIT some of them are fast.

    You have to take into consideration that this isn't like an electric car. Karts are much much lighter, so the bigger electric motors have enough power to push the karts with ease. As well with the electric motor you have linear power, as soon as you put your foot on it, you are at peak HP and rippin'. I assure you they won't disappoint.

    I've been going through withdrawals since Grand Prix closed down, so this should be good!

    EDIT: Reading into it, Karts reach speeds of 70 km/h so shouldn't be a worry.

    Most important is that there's more torque than grip, otherwise I'll get my ass kicked from weight penalty hahaha.
