It’s 200nt for the normal karts they reach speeds of about 70km/hr without exaggeration. And the pro kart’s top speed is a bit faster…but their acceleration is incredible…plus they have expensive sticky tires on them. So you can make 90 degree turns at 70km/hr. Pro Karts are 600nt…but you’ll need to be good at the norm karts before thinking of trying the Pro.
The Pro Kart was so intense that I was having coughing fits…on every corner and during hard acceleration. Why? Because the G-forces involved were so great that I think they were pushing against the walls of my lungs. I didn’t have a cold…and I don’t normally cough…but push down on the accelerator and I was thrown back in the seat and I’d start coughing. Not so much the 2nd time…I think my body learned how to brace itself.
Anyway here are the directions for scooter or bike:
Directions coming from Hsinchu (Xinzhu) or anywhere north of there:
Head over to the West Costal Highway (number 61) go south. (This road is very enjoyable and has little traffic. Alot of speed traps so stick to the speed limit. This trip takes a little under an hour from Jung-li, but would be a fun ride even for people from Taipei or Taichung.)
South of Hsinchu (Xinzhu) you will come to a rest area on the right hand side with 2 large flags and a parking area along the road…impossible to miss.
Continue on to the next big intersection with a 4-lane road with divider to the left. There will be signs saying that the #3(or maybe the 1) Highway entrance is to the left. Go left on that intersection over a small bridge that has gas stations on either side of it then take the first right which is the #13.
Continue along the #13 to the second 7-11 on the right hand side (about 4 minutes up the road). Turn right into the smaller street directly beside the 7-11.
Then follow the street beside the 7-11 to a right hand turn with a green sign with RKS on it and an arrow pointing right. You turn right onto that then the first right after that (which will also have a sign)…follow that to the end and then a quick left, right…then up a hill to the track.
So in brief…at the 2nd 7-11. Right, right, go straight…then left, right up the hill.
From the two big flags at the beach stop area…it’s only about another 5-10 minutes to the track.
If heading from the SOUTH (Taichung…etc.)
You could just head north on the Costal Highway until you reach the “2 FLAG” rest area. Then make a U-turn and follow the directions from there.

On the 13 near the 2nd 7-11 to the Kart track (PART2): youtube.com/v/TR5nfx3U4Lw
If taking a car.
Just take the 1 Highway and get off in Jhunan and find the #13 road and then look for the 7-11 on that road. There are only 3…you want the one in the video…it’s near some idustrial park. Or just ask any young guys for the “small car racing place” .
They open at 10:30…and I’m usually there shortly after that. But if you’re going let me know for sure…because I might not go otherwise…I’m a bit broke recently.
