Our Karts comes in a range of bright and exciting colours to make your track vibrant and varied. Our vinyl stickers are imprinted in the plastic moulding process for durability and long life. The base panel for the karts comes in black and both this panel and the seat pop out for easy access for maintenance. Want a mix? Want your fleet to be the same colour? It's customisable and up to you.
Our karts are hand built by the founder and creator with help from our Blastacars® Engineering team in New Zealand. Countless innovations are implemented into the kart to ensure long life of the kart and it's parts. New Zealand is a proud innovative country that takes pride in the quality of it's work. We have karts in operation at our New Zealand tracks that are over 10 years old. Unlike go kart manufacturers that expect replacement models to be purchased within a couple of years, we strive to develop a kart that will give you ongoing use and reliability
Inspired by his days as a speedway racer, the founder of Blastacars® Peter Zyp began working for a go kart track and noticed customers always wanted to slide and drift around the corners just like he did in his speedway racing. Instead of disciplining customers like the operators were, he wanted to embrace this need to drift and set to work to develop his first model of drift kart. He opened a small oval track in 1987 to the public and developed and refined the kart and customer experience over the years. The actual name "Blastacars" came from Peter hearing customers come off the karts exclaiming "That was a blast!". Unlike go kart manufacturers that just build karts, Peter has created and operated the tracks to get a better understanding of running and maintaining the karts and the customer experience. Peter has developed several innovative methods for track development, customer experience and the karts themselves which you can benefit from when joining the Blastacars® family. Countless hours have gone into research and development and todays Mark 7 kart is the finest example of a drift kart benefiting from 29 years of development.
The reliable and long lasting 270cc Kart is the standard option for first time drifters and regulars. Get all the benefits of a long lasting kart with the perfect mix of power and fuel efficiency. A standard Blastacars® track would have the majority of the fleet with this model as it can service the majority of customer needs.
The 390cc Kart is an adrenaline pumping ride. Customers must earn their "Black Card" license before they can experience the exciting power and torque of the 390cc Honda engine. The kart features unique benefits such as our customised dry clutch providing long lasting durability.
Our karts have been developed to endure long days of use and wear and tear which is expected from a public leisure karting experience. Every element of our kart is considered to provide long life and the best drifting experience possible.
