Pitstop Karting FAQ’s
Is there an age or height restriction?
You must be a height of 128cm to be able to drive one of our junior karts safely. To drive our senior karts you must be over 150cm tall to reach the pedals safely. With our dual karts, the passenger must be 3 years or older and must be able to hold and control their neck properly and independently for the safety of the passenger.
Do you have double karts?
Yes, Pitstop Karting has two dual karts. The driver must be 18 years + to drive and the passenger must be 3 years or older and must be able to hold and control their neck properly and independently for the safety of the passenger. Check with our staff for availability on the day.
What should I wear when I go karting?
Drivers must wear closed in shoes such as sneakers or sandshoes. No heels, thongs, sandals or other open toed footwear is to be worn. Comfortable but not loose-fitting clothing is to be worn. Clothing that is not permitted are: scarves, hoodies, jumpers around waist, ties, chains or other loose jewellery or anything else that may interfere with the kart. It is also recommended that you don’t wear short or flowing skirts.
Can I bring my own helmet?
Yes, you can definitely bring your own helmet in. We encourage you to bring your own helmet if you can. The better your helmet fits, the safer you are. However, it must be a full faced helmet that meets the Australian Standards. If you have a dirt bike helmet, you must wear the googles with it as well. This is for the safety of the driver. If you don’t have your own helmet, Pitstop Karting provides hired helmets. Whilst wearing these hairnets or balaclavas must be worn.
How long do your sessions go for?
All information is on our website and Facebook page. However, our sessions are 10 minutes long each. If you bought 3 sessions, you would have 3 lots of 10 minute sessions on the track. These may not be consecutive due to the amount of people on the day.
My race was cut short. Why is that?
If your race session was cut short there could be a couple of reasons. One reason could be that there was unsafe behaviour on the track, where our rules and conditions were broken. So therefore, as sighted by the driver before entering the kart, the driver agreed to these terms and the duration of the session was reduced. Another reason could be that there was an incident where the race had to cease due to the safety of the customers on or off the track. Our Track Attendants have strict guidelines they are to follow as directed from their manager and work policies and procedures. If you are driving safely and following all our rules, then there shouldn’t be any issues with the duration of the session.
Do I need to make a booking?
No. If you have a few family members or mates, you are welcome just to arrive and drive. If you want to make an event of it where you have over 15+ people send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can have a chat to see what arrangements we can do. If you do make a booking a deposit is required at least a week in advance to lock in the date and time for your larger event.
