Kingston Park Raceway

Kingston Park Raceway has grown to become Australia's premier Karting and entertainment venue. Initially staffed by just 3 staff and Rex the guard dog the company has grown to 32 people, and is now equipped with more than 100 Karts over three tracks that suit drivers of all ages and skill.

At Kingston Park Raceway we are much more than just a kart track. Today we offer a unique educational opportunity, coupled to a true race experience that gets your heart racing at every turn and it is a formula that has allowed the raceway to firmly carve itself a place among adventure tourism experiences in South-East Queensland.

We are Australia's most technologically advanced go-karting venue, and to manage the fast pace associated with the businesses success, they have installed the latest European telemetry with Wi-Fi diagnostic software enabling Track safety control, performance diagnostics plus screen displays of race times, race positions and the split second gap between drivers during an event.

To keep up with the rigors of racing day in day out the KPR team introduced a fleet replacement program that saw the karts replaced on an annual basis. The task of sourcing and implementing 100 new karts each year was a logistical challenge and the raceway soon began a design and construct program that is managed right here in Logan. Taking control of our own destiny was a principal objective of the program and today KPR are the only hire kart manufacturer in Australia and the strength and design of the mighty Schumacher karts has made them a most sought-after kart in the industry.

The venue hosts on average 40 events a week, from parties to corporate events, of which around a quarter involve major companies from Brisbane and the Gold Coast. The raceway has become a firm favourite by hosting parties for families with young children (with amusement rides and a well stocked games room beside a purpose-built safe track),

Most weekends are fast and furious on the Main Circuit and we often see the mighty Schumacher karts on the Le Mans track travel at speeds up 70 kph as they charge around out professionally built race tracks.

Due to our very convenient geographical position, we enjoy exposure to around 3.5 million residents in our region and almost 10 million tourism visitors each year - and all within 45 minutes of the racetrack. In addition to day-trippers and visiting family members, Kingston Park Raceway is also popular for corporate and team building programs.

Managing Director and founder, Terry Skene, who has worked in Logan since 1977, decided to establish the raceway here because of the region's growing population and centrally accessible location. The decision has paid off, with Kingston Park raceway now well respected as one of Australia's leading Go karting entertainment venues.

We have grown into a family entertainment centre and we've become a recognised destination for the regional drive market. We regularly see visitation from customers who drive from 45 to 90 minutes away to enjoy Australia's premier go-kart entertainment,' Terry says.

Kingston Park Raceway has won numerous awards including Logan Overall Business Achievers Business of the Year Award twice (now a Hall of Fame inductee), was a Queensland Tourism Awards Finalist in Adventure Tourism, and has been a Telstra Business Awards State Finalist three times.

We love what we do and look forward to sharing a day of fast fun and exciting memories with you soon.

Kingston Park Raceway,  It's One Hell of a Day Out!
