New electric go-karting track at *SCAPE Playspace until July
There is also a high-intensity fitness pop-up by Fight Zone and activities set up by the Lion City Sailors.
A new electric go-karting track called RaceHub has been launched by the Legion of Racers (LoR) on Saturday (Apr 30), in partnership with *SCAPE.
Mr Alvin Tan, the Minister of State for Culture, Community and Youth, attended the launch and declared the opening of the project.
Located at *SCAPE Playspace, the 200m track allows members of the public to experience electric karting under floodlights.
It is expected to last until July this year and may extend till the Singapore Grand Prix Season, which is set to happen from late September to October.
“RaceHub was conceptualised with the main idea of bringing people out to play and to experience new entertainment offerings right in the heart of the city,” said Lim Keong Wee, the co-founder of Legion of Racers.
Other partners for RaceHub include Lion City Sailors (LCS), SAFRA, National Youth Council as well as local fitness brand Fight Zone.
Apart from the go-karts, a six-station high intensity training pop-up has been set up by Fight Zone. Those who wish to learn more about Muay Thai and its benefits can participate in the activities and utilise the punching and kicking bags.
Additionally, LCS is also bringing “elements of football” to the arena. This includes guest appearances by the Sailors at the facility over three months.
Graffiti art created by the Sailors creative team can also be found at the operations container at *SCAPE.
For safety reasons, only children aged nine and above are eligible for the rides. A minimum height requirement of 130cm has also been imposed.
Drivers below 18 years of age are required to sign an indemnity form once they have booked a session.
The go-kart rides cost $25 for adults and $20 for students as well as children aged nine to 12. Tickets are available for purchase on RaceHub’s official website.
