Go Karting with Disabilities

Enabling mobility impaired people to experience the joy of go-karting.

Le Mans Go Karts has partnered with Scope to enable thousands of people with limited mobility the chance to enjoy the thrill and excitement of racing real go-karts.

Scope, a not-for-profit organisation that assists those with physical, intellectual and multiple disabilities, has teamed up with Le Mans Go Karts to provide a state-of-the-art C-Series ceiling lift that can comfortably and safely transfer mobility impaired people into and out of an Adult Dual Double Kart.

The C-300 was purchased from Rehab Assist in Bayswater, with Le Mans Go Karts and Scope contributing to the costs equally.

Angela Kasputtis, Marketing & Promotions Manager of Le Mans Go Karts, is thrilled to be able to offer all of the excitement of go-karting to a whole new group of eager thrill seekers.

“When the idea was first raised to partner with Scope to create this opportunity for those who weren’t previously able to enjoy go-karting, we had no hesitation in making it a reality,” said Angela.

“We want to ensure as many people as possible can experience the joy of go-karting, and with the C-300 ceiling lift, now even more people can.

“Scope is a wonderful organisation who do so much for those less fortunate than ourselves, and to partner with them for such a worthy cause gives us a real sense of pride and satisfaction.”

What is the C-300 ceiling lift?

Ceiling lifts are used to effectively transfer those who have mobility impairments, and are predominantly used in institutional and homecare settings. However, a new use has been found for these incredible machines, to comfortably ease people into and out of Adult Dual Double Karts.

The C-300 lift is a light (136kg), compact and portable hoist, yet is built to withstand the most demanding of environments, which makes it perfect for the Le Mans Go Karts tracks. The electric hand control with simple disconnect and emergency lowering makes it easy to operate by a single person, and the quiet and soft stop/start system ensures a safe and smooth transition for the passenger.

This particular ceiling lift was chosen because it has a freestanding gantry hoist, with a maximum load of 136kg. The safe working load enables 98% of the population to now enjoy the sheer delight of racing around the track in one of our go-karts.

How can you use the C-300 ceiling lift?

if you or someone you know would benefit from our C-300 ceiling lift, call Le Mans Go Karts on (03) 8787 8741 to arrange a time and book the hoist prior to visiting. This will ensure the hoist is available and the experience is fantastic for everyone involved.

Please note, Le Mans Go Karts only supplies the hoist, passengers must bring their own sling to enable transfers from the hoist into our Adult Dual Double Kart.

Why Le Mans?

Apart from the amazing C-Series ceiling lift that now allows the mobility impaired to participate in go-karting, Le Mans Go Karts operates Victoria’s biggest and best go-kart complex. With four incredible tracks spanning 23 acres, built to Australian and international karting standards, you will enjoy a thrilling go-karting experience.

Drive day or night thanks to the fully floodlit circuits, in dry or wet weather conditions. From 10am until late into the evening, you can experience for yourself, even for just a moment, what it must be like for a world famous racing car driver as you race against your friends or work colleagues.

But remember, please call (03) 8787 8741 prior to visiting to book the hoist.
