    Go Karting In Thailand

    Between Jomtien and Pattaya on Soi Thepasit there are 2 go kart places, the one we went to day is the international standard one.

    They have been there 10 years or more as you can see by this shabby exterior, but hell we aint here to admire the view




    This place also holds international competitions so if you have your own Kart tucked away in your garage this is the place to bring it, KR Karting.





    I should add that this sign is not in a bar, but is the price list for the go karts.

    This really isn't the type of place you would take someone for a meal but they do do food here.




    Now this bugger is one of the 300baht a go ones.




    Pretty damn smart.

    This guy was fast, that is his own go kart and he uses it for racing, it is apparantly a very expensive hobby, ie the engine is rebuilt every 3 races for a mere 30k baht, plus the old tyres don't seem to last long.

    Anyway the beasty go karts are pretty damn fast, but they have a little problem, ie all the oil and shite that gets all over your clothes, not that that matters to me as the most expensive tshirt I own probably cost 150baht, but here they have overcome that problem, yep they got crash helmets so you dont get to join my dead farang thread and also jackets to keep all the shite off your nice clothes.

    Sadly it seems to be being demolished now to make way for more tourist housing which Pattaya and jomtien are in desperate need of, so if you still want to go Go Karting in Pattaya you can still go here.
