About Kartright Speedway

Kartright Speedway is Singapore's first ever permanent competition-length karting race track. Comprising of a 750 meters long, technically challenging circuit, the track is located at 511 Upper Jurong Road. Just a short walk away from Joo Koon MRT and close by the Pan Island Expressway (PIE), this facility is easily accessible for everyone. There are also ample parking lots for those who drive. Parking charges can be found here.

The track took five months to be built and is finished with the best grade of bitumen to facilitate high speed racing on slick tyres. It also boasts of being the first ever flood-light lit track in Singapore, allowing spectacular night racing. To further satisfy the drivers' needs for an enthralling competition, the track is constructed to be 7-metre wide so as to allow thrilling overtaking opportunities. Race karts can go up to 130 km/h and the average time clocked by race per lap is 36 seconds. Kartright Speedway, together with the Singapore Motor Sports Association (SMSA), will be organising competitive races regularly.

The facility encompasses a two-storey building which includes a pit lane, spectator viewing gallery, teaching rooms, washrooms, lounges, office and F&B outlets. The track is supported by a full complement of on-site facilities including a pro shop to cater to the needs of karters and indoor kart storage services. Owners of karts can now schedule their own practice sessions - a luxury never experienced before.

Officially opened on 9 January 2010, the track has been well-received by the karting community. It sees a constant stream of recreational karters, corporate bookings, stag nights and club activities. A growing segment of karters at the track are the children ranging from as young as four years old up to 15 years of age, some of which participate in cadet and junior events. Kartright Speedway has also established its own academy to train keen karters and develop promising talent.

Safety is never compromised at Kartright Speedway. The track is surrounded with approximately 4,000 tyres as safety walls to cushion the impact of collisions. Kartright Speedway marshals are deployed at all times to render assistance in times of a breakdown or an incident. Kartright Speedway operates from 11.00 am to 10.00 pm on weekdays, 9.00 am to 10.00 pm on Saturdays and 9.00 am to 7.00pm on Sundays.

Kartright Speedway


It used to be a golf driving range where the seasoned hone their craft and the amateurs make trying swings. All that has gone - along with the grass, the litter of white golf balls as well as the floodlights - and in its place today stands Kartright Speedway, Singapore's newest and finest permanent competition-length go-karting facility.

Located at 511 Upper Jurong Road (opposite SAFTI, PIE exit Upper Jurong), it directly replaced what was formerly the golf driving range next to Arena Country Club.

Five months was all it took for the 750-metre-long and 7-metre-wide technically-challenging kart racing track to be built. But beyond those five months was years of struggle, disappointment and eventually triumph that gave birth to the existence of Kartright Speedway.

It was a dream of two men, who were long into the sport, both competitively and also at a management level when they were serving key roles in the now-defunct Karting Club Singapore (KCS).

Jude Benny, Chairman of KCS in 1993 and Allan Teo, former secretary of KCS started their quest for a suitable plot of land to build a proper go-kart track that our nation so needed.

Formula 1 came to our streets and made history as the first ever F1 night race, but still there wasn't a competitive karting track until Kartright Speedway first opened its doors to the public on 1 October 2009.

Jude and Allan nearly met success when they found a place at Jalan Bahar. Work was about to commence in full swing when an unfortunate turn of events regarding regulatory approvals derailed the project.

Having gone one full circle, the duo restarted their quest and continued searching for a suitable place. Finally, like a blessing in disguise, they learnt of the driving range at Arena Country Club that had closed down after its lease was not renewed.

Two million dollars and lots of paperwork after, Kartright Speedway held its official grand opening on 9 January 2010, with the occasion graced by Oon Jin Teik, CEO of the Singapore Sports Council.

Retaining the former driving range's structure, the previous two-tier building has since been transformed into a pit building with corporate function rooms and a viewing gallery on the second level.

Having replaced all previous lights with 56 new lights - 46 are 1,000-watt and 11 are 2,000-watt - across 20 lighting poles, night karting is offered and a pro kart shop is housed on the premises, along with storage facilities that come with maintenance of karts.

Kartright Speedway has made it, after all the toil and struggles. Said Jude, "Allan and I are in the winter of our racing years and the future of karting is in the hands of the young drivers. Realising this dream of a permanent kart racing track is the best gift that us two veteran karters can give to the next generation of drivers. It is our contribution to the sport which we are so passionate about."
