    • Tickets are now on sale for the ultimate outdoor go karting experience at Optus Stadium

    Australia's ultimate outdoor karting experience roars into Stadium Park at Optus Stadium this January.


    Stadium Karts, brought to Perth by local A1GP and V8 Supercar driver Christian Murchison in partnership with VenuesLive, will operate on a custom-built track and have fans testing their limits with a full range of corners at speeds of up to 70 kilometres an hour.


    The pop-up track will run seven days a week for a limited season, using karts from SODIKARTS from France.


    The circuit incorporates the Stadium Park east precinct area near the Perth Stadium train station, stretching around gardens and under overpasses, and includes a 150 metre straight allowing drivers to reach high speeds, passing through four tunnels.


    Tickets start from just $59, with off-peak options starting from just $39. Each session will last for approximately 20 minutes, including 10 minutes of track time.


    There are also multi-drive packages available for racers 14 years and over (and over 140 centimetres tall) making Stadium Karts the perfect family activity this summer.


    Speed demons can visit https://optusstadium.com.au/ to secure their spot.

    "Calling all the thrill seekers, adrenaline junkies and karting enthusiasts - Australia's ultimate outdoor karting experience launches in January for a limited season.


    "This is a pop-up experience, designed by experts, and sure to be an absolute thrill for anyone game enough to jump into a Kart and give it a go.
