Important information about FlashKart
We’ve collected the most FAQs to let you find the answers easily. In case you are interested in more details, take a deeper tour on our website. If you still don’t find the answer just send us an e-mail.
Although the engines of our electric gokarts are powerful enough to reach 130 kmph, our main goal on the track is safety. This is the reason why we’ve adjusted the settings so that you can’t achieve more than 40 kmph.
If you are more than four we are happy to organize you real race from real starting grid including 3, 4 or even 5 rounds (warm-ups–, qualifications– and final round). The best three get medals or cups at the end. You’ll find more details of our race packages under the PRICE sub-page.
Our 220 meter long racetrack is waiting for you with 14 turns – one of them is a full U turn. The track therefore needs some driving skills at higher speed so you will find it enjoyable also when you are a pro or just want to relax with friends.
If you’ve heated the wheels of your gokart hot enough so they start to have a decent grip and you also know how to play with your bodyweight than you can drive a lap within 22-23 seconds. A standard round at FlashKart lasts for 7 minutes which means about 13-15 laps.
In order to guarantee security on the track we limit the number of karts on the track simultaneously. The more karts on the track the greater the possibility of crashes which lead ultimately to decreased racing experience. Therefore max 8 people can enjoy our track at the same time.
Although both the seats and pedals are adjustable, we recommend a minimum height of 125 cm (if you are smaller you won’t reach the pedals and can’t concentrate on steering the wheels and pushing the pedals) and a maximum height of 200 cm (above you won’t fit into the seat).
Because of safety reasons wearing a pair of casual AND closed shoes is compulsory. Your sandals or slippers can get caught into the pedals and can lead to serious accidents where you can hurt yourself really badly.
In case the adrenaline took over the lead and you crashed the walls or other cars hard the kart’s on-board crash sensors will penalize you and your car will be slowed down for 8 seconds.
Getting here During the day you can come by metro line M2 or by bus 7 and get off at “Blaha Lujza tér” stop. In the night the following bus lines stop here: 907, 908, 931, 956, 990. Tram number 4 and 6 take you here any time.
Parking Would you decide to come by car you can leave your car in the underground car park in Europeum (the shopping mall which includes FlashKart), after 8 p.m. parking is free in the public parking lots around Blaha Lujza square and Somogyi Béla street.
Entrance Europeum mall has entrances from József street and Blaha Lujza square. Take the indoor elevator to level -5 and from there you can’t miss us! When the shopping mall is closed, you can enter the building through the door dedicated for night visitors next to the mall main entrance from Blaha Lujza square. Do not forget to ring the door bell!
