Fastest I have ever been. The 3 hot laps were not what I was expecting. Half the first lap spent warming Tyres and brakes then flat out. Only went over start finish line twice so 3rd lap incomplete. Mentioned the fact to company rep only to recieve a fairly cavalier response. Would advise anyone asking about it. Not good value.

Go Karts
Took my Grandsons down to Hampton Downs Go Karts for a treat, we have been a few times and the have a blast, however our latest experience was only average.
The kart I had, had issues with the governer, it stayed on for a good 10 secs longer than the other karts when re-activated. As it was a wet track we were slowed a lot so I was hardly moving, came in after a couple of laps hoping to change karts, there were none to use.
Told by staff that there was not a problem ( didn't check Kart) and to go out again, the kart was undriveable so didn't bother. Disappointing thing was they wouldn't listen to what i was saying. Noticed they took it out for a drive and then garaged it.
Never got to have fun with the boys, very disappointed.

We went to Hampton Downs yesterday for my husband to have a Supercar Dash experience.

Unfortunately the weather was too wet to do this. But we were offered a free lap in the Lexus Safety car as we had travelled some distance. And would have to come back at another time for Original planned ride.

All staff at the track are extremely welcoming and friendly, A+ service, they are excellent at what they do.
Dave Weir was our driver, we were jokingly told he was the janitor. Dave has excellent driving and people skills. And although initially very nervous, not my husband or sons tho! Dave explained the driving of the track in an easy to understand manner, all while skilfully handling the car. 3 laps later, guys ‘whooping’! And wishing it had been a dry track and faster speeds- 163kmph was more than enough for me!

Can’t recommend this experience more highly. We look forward to returning very soon for another ride and my husband to have his super car dash.

After receiving instruction before we dressed in race gear and did photos. These were my highlights for the day . We started off slowly from Pitt lane, the whole time I was driving the instructor was continually shouting instructions at me in a almost aggressive way, he had had a long day but WTF. This was not the part I was most disappointed with.
My amazing family all chipped in and got me eight laps driving a mustang race car very very cool. After completing six laps I was told this next lap was my last. I pulled into Pitt lane as instructed, climbed from the car to be met by my family, my daughter filmed my drive, I told her I think I’ve only had six laps, my daughter said yea six or seven at the most. Well my son paid an extra $50 for the in car video on this film it proves I only did seven of the eight laps my family paid for. At almost $100 a lap I fell we should receive a refund. Film don’t miscount .Gutted. Count your laps people:(

Cafe opens at 8.00. We arrived at 8.00 and got a very unfriendly reception. We left. I've visited four times before but I am unlikely to return.

Below rating is only about the cafe / information centre.
