Now we all know the GoKart is the fastest buggy in the west thanks to it’s 230W motor pumping out the horsepower. But things have started getting a bit ridiculous. I’m happy to report a GoKart has just lapped the Isle of Man at an average speed of 182kph! Don’t believe me? Take a look below
No, you’re not looking at the next generation GoKart, but Phil Harvey in the Isle of Man TT Supersport race on a Team GoKart Electric Golf Yamaha R6. And yes, he really did lap the 60km circuit at an average speed of 182kph…mad!
Anybody else looking for GoKart sponsorship will need to meet similar speed criteria to Phil – video evidence will be required…Add a comment
A couple of weeks ago GoKart headed to Tasmania to play the famed Barnbougle Dunes and Lost Farm courses. The weekend was put together by Garry from Hacker Magazine and despite the prior warning of wind, rain and blizzards, we enjoyed 2 of the best days of weather possible of early September on the Apple Isle.
Needless to say, we took a few GoKarts with us for all to play with, but the real stars of the weekend were the two courses. Spectacular is an understatement – if you enjoy links golf (or golf in general for that matter) get yourself down to the north east corner of Tassie as soon as possible and play 2 of the world’s top 100 courses in a weekend….heaven!
For more details of the trip (and associated shenanigans) pick up the next edition of Hacker Magazine.Add a comment 1 Comment
After a 4 year wait the multi-award winning GoKart is finally coming to Australia.
The GoKart has graced the fairways of the UK and Europe since 2007 and now the home of golf (sorry Scotland) gets the chance to whiz these wonders around the hallowed turf of Kingston Heath, Barnbougle Dunes etc etc.
Keep checking the site for more information and if you’re quick, you can secure one of the first to arrive and be the envy of your friends.Add a comment
…yes, the GoKart will fit into an R8. That’s two reasons to be happy if you own one.

Mills and Boon isn’t usually our thing, but we did rather like the story of two customers meeting (and are subsequently getting along rather swimmingly) because of a GoKart. She told him about hers, then he went and got one and they compared notes…and it kind of kicked off from there. Who knows, maybe even the patter of little hedgehog wheels one day. Keep us posted (you know who you are, and we wouldn’t make you blush and quote any names).
