Why Kambol Kart Race Way is special ?

Cambodia's only premier go-kart track of international standard 980m long circuit. Located on the outskirts of Phnom Penh, amidst lush countryside. Enjoy racing with friends on 6.5hp go-karts with top speeds of 65-70kph. Popular venue for corporate team building, clubs' and associations' racing events, companies' and embassies' family days, etc.

What to explore at Kambol Kart Race Way?

Beautifully situated among rice paddies and surrounded by palm trees, go-kart racing in Cambodia can be a surreal experience, only heightened by the sound of gunfire coming from the neighbouring shooting range. The track is over 900 metres long, with 11 turns and a 150 metre straight-away (I’ll admit that I didn’t count the turns and and cribbed that information from my favourite Phnom Penh map by Canby Publications).

Workers are blissfully indifferent to the deportment of their customers, and speeds of over 60km can be reached on the track. Drinking and driving is not only permitted but encouraged, and cold beers are served in the bar that overlooks the track, which is a pleasant place to hang if you happen to be terrified of driving (like yours truly). Luckily, they provide helmets and optional blue and yellow jumpsuits for both safety and style.

Each race is 10 times around the track (almost 10km) and costs $12. Depending on how fast you drive, each race lasts about 10 to 18 minutes. It may not seem like a long time, but it’s exhausting, and most find one or two races more than enough. Try and time your visit so you catch the beautiful sunset over the track and surrounding paddies.

Tips for you

  • Prices include helmets and racing suits
    Ticket and Pricing
  • It’s not particularly close to town — be prepared to to spend some time in a tuk tuk
    Transportation
  • It's about 30 mins from town, and at $12 for 10mins
    Location
  • Look for a hard-to-spot sign on the right, 8km beyond the airport; if you hit the toll booth, you’ve gone too far.
    Experience
  • The best way to enjoy it is to go with a group of friends but singles can either join any other groups
    Experience
  • The best thing about the place is the lack of rules, ramming, shoving and even going the complete opposite way on the track is fine
    Experience
  • There's a bar upstairs too, with some simple drinks.

After last year when it was impossible to go there, finally this year I went there. It's very difficult to find it; more or less.. when you are on the National Road you have to turn left to the street near a Depot Tela; then you have to ask many times ;) So, it's better to call the owner..The track is located in the countryside, nice track with bad pavement (but I found more or less the same conditions in others western countries tracks). The karts are quite fast and the two I drove had no brakes at all (o.O). Anyway, the track doesn't require so many brake moments.. so.. enjoy and be careful!

The carts vary in terms of top speed. If you're lucky you can rent the "fast" ones but they only have a couple and seem to be in for "repairs" often. The steering on the 2 karts I got were shot to hell. Extremly difficult to make the turns at any speed. The actual course is in desperate need of repairs as well. Pot-holes all over the track, loads of sand and branches in the middle of the track which makes going around turns for the first few times like an obstacle. These guys put ZERO effort in the upkeep of both the karts and the course. I wouldn't come back here again as it was a waste of time and money.

This track is a long way out of town so expect a trip that takes you over an hr in a tuktuk. The track is 900m or so long and is very bumpy. Safety is not a major concern out here, please be aware that if you are going with kids they don't have many small helmets and the ones they do have don't have chin straps. It is $12 per 10mins per person. Try and take the right money thereabouts as they don't carry change. The karts are quite old, some with steering issues, but are still powerful and good fun. As long as you are aware of these issues before you go it is a good day out!
