  • Not a nice experience meeting this person. Murray needs to lightenup.
  • Tops fun... all the kids loved it ..Murry was a top bloke...
  • Blokarting is great fun for anyone who likes sailing or the idea of flying around a track just powered by the wind. Anyone can learn to Blokart safely in 5-10mins. It isn't very physical, but is very exciting. Nelson is very lucky to have 1 of New Zealands' best Blokarting tracks - just 2 mins from Richmond town center. . Vortex karting hires carts and gives you all the necessary instruction. Cheap and lots of fun. There is also a local blokarting club called 'TOTS' Top of the South - blokarting. They sail and race on the track most sundays about 12 pm over the summer.
