Impact Speed Park Review
By Kenneth Wong
Travel time from Bangkok City to Impact Speed Park took 1.5 hours by Taxi. The traffic jam was unbearable but once I reached the Impact area (with all the shopping centres and recreational facilities), I felt very excited to go on track. The go-kart track is about 700m long and 8 meters wide in most areas. The facility is clean and tidy as they only opened about 1.5 years ago.
The registration process is easy as you may opt to use Facbook login. You may also opt for a new use login if Facebook isn’t your thing. Most Kart tracks are using a similar registration procedure around the world these days. A 1 year membership fee costs TH100 and each session (8 mins) cost TH600.
I personally opted for 2 sessions. My first session was dry and cool. For safety, the Sodi electric fun karts speed can be controlled remotely from the pits. They will slow you down in the event of an accident, during pit entry and pit exit. The track is fast flowing. As this is a fun kart, I hardly needed to use the brake pedal most of the time. Due to the rain however, I did not go for my 2nd session. Although the rain eventually stopped, the track operator was not allowed to let us go out until they have blown dry the whole track. This process takes up to 2 hours (personally i feel it is a bit too extreme to have such a policy).
Anyway, great track and great fun. We have even been invited to hold our events over there for our members to race. Stay tuned!
