Race Party

 

The promise

A boutique slot-car racing experience, perfect for young and old.

The reality

We arrive to drinks and canapes in the function room next to the racing room. Owner Noirin Mosley says the venue is designed for private parties, events and even corporate team-building days, and they can pretty much tailor to any group.

The 40-metre-long Albert Park Track has two 360 loops and eight lanes. We start with some test runs to see who can stay on the track the longest – as soon as you fall off, you’re out.

It’s really quite tricky at first to stay on the track, and I’m told I’ve got a bit of a lead foot – or trigger finger in this case – and need to slow down around the turns.

Next we move on to racing each other, and I’m really no good at it! I’m forever falling off the track and when I’m staying on I’m too slow.

Despite this, it’s really fun and my competitors are really enjoying it – which I suspect has something to do with the fact that they’re winning.

 

The pay-off

Whether you’re good at it or not, it’s just good fun and something a bit different for an event, and the team keeps us in drinks and nibbles all night.

The pain factor

At one point I’m made to don a fluoro hazard vest because I can’t stay on the track – but it’s all in good humour.

Who should do it?

Kids and adults will enjoy themselves and get their hearts racing.

The bill

Casual racing is $25 a person for an hour in a group of four to 16 people.

Catered functions and kids’ parties have various pricing options.

Would I do it again?

I could be tempted – maybe I’ll figure out how to stay on the track next time!
