Karting in Bangalore!!!

It was yet another long weekend and we, I and a couple of friends, were hungry for action. Two long weekends, back to back, ain't much fun. After brainstorming for a while, we decided to go karting. I had gone to EZone karting track at marathahalli quite a few times. So, I suggested that; but soon, I recalled a friend mentioning a karting track on mysore road. So, off i go googling. Thanks to google, I found what I was looking for - Grips karting, near Raja Rajeshwari Hospital, Mysore road. The reviews looked good. So, we decided to give it a try.

If you have been to the EZone club and liked the experience, you will find Grips way better, leagues ahead in fact. The track is beautifully designed, longer and there are trees to offer shade. The karts were in good condition. I went hard at it as I had some prior experience at karting. The assistants were friendly. I drifted a few times, trying to go fast round the corners. The assistants kept their cool. I found them very sensible. Attached are a few pics and the details. Give it a go folks. If you like life on the fast line, you are in for a treat.

Where: Mysore road, after Raja Rajeshwari Hospital, on the left side (when you travel towards mysore)
How far from bangalore: 50 km , we reached the place in about an hour, from BTM.
Rates: 150 for 6 laps (6.5bhp engines), they also have more powerful karts for 200 and 300 bucks. I tried the one for 200 bucks. It was awesome!!
Info: 9845011007, hours - 9.30 to 18.30

Have fun!!

Have you ever tried off-road karting? There is a brand of karts here in the U.S. (Manco Go Karts) that's great for riding on dirt or sand. They even make some with two seats. You should check them out.

Hey Marc, thanks for that. Hope I will get my hands on that some day :) They look really cool. However, my dream vehicle is a Yamaha R1. I'm in love with bikes, for life.
