The Bandaragama karting circuit is the biggest go-kart circuit to be found in Sri Lanka. Inside, one can find an 800 metre long racing track, inclusive of a 571 metre long rental track as well as an additional separate kiddies’ rental track. The site has been designed and built with international standards kept close in mind, creating a safe environment for adults and children to have a fun day out racing.
Being situated quite close by to the tourist hotspot that is Kalutara, go-karting in Bandaragama is a must to be added to your list of things to do in Kalutara. Several hotels can be found in the area depending on the type of accommodation you’re looking for on your stay, such as the Anantara Kalutara Resort among many others. One of the many features of Kalutara is that it not only is a lovely beachside town but also has the famous Kalu Ganga River on the other side, once a very important point of entry for merchants entering the Serendib.
The circuit provides its patrons with an opportunity to experience the thrill of racing. For those who just want to have a day of fun or those actually interested in perhaps getting into this field of sport, go-karting can be considered the primary choice. In fact, go-karting by itself has also become known as an international sport as well. The benefits of starting off with karting include the high speed training and instilling the ability in a driver to act on fast reflexes and decision-making. In fact, a lot of today’s renowned world champions in Formula One racing such as Michael Schumacher, Jensen Button and Fernando Alonso all began their careers in go-karting.
Safety measures are taken very seriously at the circuit, a lack of which is what led to the downfall of the once glorified sport of motor-racing in Sri Lanka. Along with the number of rental karts specifically designed for children and adults, safety gear has been made available at the circuit for all engaging in the fun.
