Make your own go-kart track for the Gokart

Make your own go-kart track for the Gokart

Do you want to become the third racer in Formula 1 now that Nyck de Vries will appear on the track next to Max Verstappen next racing season? You can't start racing early enough if you have serious ambitions and of course karting is also just cool to do as a hobby and relaxation. It becomes even more fun if you own your own Segway-Ninebot Kart and have a go-kart track nearby. So why not design and realize your own go-kart track if you have enough space in your own garden or the means to purchase a site somewhere?

Does it start with the track or the kart?

The Segway-Ninebot Kart is the start of many adventures and you race on the track alone to master your driving technique, for example, or together with others to let your racing heart beat and compete with each other. The cool thing about the Segway-Ninebot Kart is that it can be set in different lengths. This allows you to race with peers, but also with your big brother (or fanatical sister) or even your father (or another adult). Let's see if they can keep up with you on the track and who you will be the fastest..

Not a big garden, but still a private go-kart track

Since you are not allowed on public roads with the Segway-Ninebot Kart, you have to be creative in coming up with solutions. Any kind of private terrain is suitable to let your imagination run wild. Let your parents worry about the rules and municipal matters that come with it. You can focus on the go-kart track of your dreams and what it should look like. Do you want a corner just like La Source of the Spa-Francorchamps Circuit, or do you want some longer stretches to test the real speed of the Go Kart Ninebot? Make it happen and race on your own kart track.

Your own go-kart track - from design to reality

It starts with finding a terrain and for this you have to do some research. It is not only about what terrains are available in your neighbourhood, but also what conditions the terrain must meet. With the Segway Segway-Ninebot Kart, for example, you cannot bridge large differences in height. The kart prefers a somewhat flatter terrain. You have to take that into account first of all. Furthermore, the go-kart track can be located a little further from your house (especially nice for the neighbors if you don't live in the countryside), because the go-kart is very easy to transport. You do not need a separate trailer, because it can simply be taken with you in your car.

The track, the kart – what else?

With every form of electric karts you have to think about personal protective equipment. Think about the essentials to protect your head, neck and the rest of your body, because they can take a beating. If you look at the safety of the Segway-Ninebot Kart itself, the seat must fit properly. And if you look outside the kart, the track must also meet some safety aspects. It is not only about the people along the track who can intervene if something happens, but also how you make the track itself safe for e-karting. When designing your own go-kart track, you must therefore take into account extra square meters that will be taken up by a bouncing barrier that takes the force out of a possible blow.

The icing on the cake for passionate karters

You can choose to do the maintenance on your Segway-Ninebot Kart at home, but you can also build a garage at the go-kart track and work on the kart on the spot if necessary. For this you need not only the building, but also the tools. And if something breaks, you naturally want to replace it as soon as possible so that you can get back on the road. You can always contact Voltes for parts for this. This way you can quickly get back on track and improve the time from last time.
