If F1 Singapore has you feeling the need for speed, here are a few racing-related activities that are guaranteed to satisfy your inner race car driver. 🏎

Then, there’s the more immersive Premium Racing Simulator setup, which comes with Next Level Racing FGT Elite Cockpits with Fanatec DD1 Direct Drive Racing Wheels and Fanatec V3 Pedals. Either way, you’re sure to leave the Race Box with your need for speed satisfied. 😄

02 • Get some sun and racing fun with Skyline Luge Singapore

A luge cart may not look and feel like a traditional go-kart as it’s more of a sled with bicycle handlebars for steering. But make no mistake — it’s a fun ride well worth the cost of admission. So if you’re looking for fun activities to do during F1 Singapore, don’t forget to add Skyline Luge to your list.

To start racing, you first need to take the skyline (think ski lift but without the snow covered slopes) up to the starting line, then it’s all downhill from there — literally. The downward incline is what gives the luge carts their acceleration through four different tracks featuring tight corners, tunnels and straightaways through the lush jungle landscape. 

Once you’re done with the roughly 2.6km ride downhill, chances are you’ll want to give it another go. Thankfully, Skyline Luge has several promotions and discounts to keep you racing to your heart’s content!

Walk-ins are welcome, but it’s recommended to book tickets online to confirm your time slot as there’s a limit on the number of riders Skyline Luge can accommodate per hour. 

📍 Address: 45 Siloso Beach Walk, Sentosa
📞 Phone: 6274 0472
⏰ Hours: Sun to Thurs, 11am – 7.30pm | Fri and Sat, 11am – 9.30pm

03 • Get behind the wheel of a miniature race car with KF1 Karting

If you’re in the mood for F1-style racing on a miniature scale, complete with winding tracks and the roar of petrol-powered engines — then KF1 Karting is the perfect place to get your race fix! KF1 features two professionally designed tracks in Kranji (960m with 18 turns) and Expo (750m with 16 turns). It also has basic go-karts that can go up to 30kph and advanced go-karts that can go up 50kph — that’s fast enough to require a valid car or motorbike licence (not joking)!

Whether it’s your first time driving a go-kart or you’re the Lewis Hamilton of the go-kart circuit, KF1 has something for every racing enthusiast. Do take note that there’s a dress code for your protection (i.e., wear comfortable pants or shorts, no loose clothing, no skirts or scarves, etc.). As for head protection, KF1 will provide you with a racing helmet to wear while you drive your way to victory.

Walk-ins are welcome, but it’s recommended to book your rides online to confirm the availability of racing slots.

Pavement isn’t the only surface available for racing. Believe it or not, you can get your racing fix on a rural farm in Kranji, riding around in all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). Mud Krank is Singapore’s one and only ATV riding centre, giving children and adults the chance to have some high-octane fun riding around in the dirt, dust and mud. In fact, Mud Krank stays open rain or shine, welcoming rainy weather and muddy trails to give you an authentic off-road ATV experience. Speaking of the ATVs, Mud Krank has two types to cater to both kids and adults.

There are dress code requirements to ride the ATVs. For protection, Mud Krank provides a helmet, elbow guards and knee guards at no additional cost. Depending on the weather conditions, it might be a good idea to bring an extra set of clothes just in case you get wet.

Mud Krank is by appointment only, so book online early to confirm your time slot(s) as there’s a limit on the number of riders per time slot. 

📍 Address: Gallop Kranji Farm Resort, 10 Neo Tiew Lane 2 , Farm H, Singapore 718813
⏰ Hours: Tues to Sun, 2pm – 9.50pm
💲 Pricing: $20 – $40 per ride
