Want to get a real adrenaline boost? Then head to the action center SMC Gokart. SMC doesn’t just offer the longest indoor go-cart racing tracks in Stockholm, but you can also take a ride on a Segway in combination with a 3 or 5 event pentathlon.
“Everyone is welcome for an unforgettable visit,” says SMC’s marketing manager Walter Carvajal.
Scandinavian Motor Center is located in northeastern Stockholm, more specifically in Frihamnen. SMC was founded 20 years ago in Copenhagen by one of the current partners, Mark Miller. The concept spread and they opened up the first SMC facility in Stockholm about 10 years ago.
Go-cart, Segway or pentathlon – there’s a fun activity for everyone in the family.
The current facility in Frihamnen opened its doors in 2009. Since the opening, the number of visitors has increased each year, which the marketing manager Walter Carvajal happy.
“We believe that with the right conditions, everyone should be able to have a wonderful visit,” says Walter.
What makes SMC’s go-cart special is that it is powered by a gasoline and not an electric motor. The result is a more awesome ride with a driving experience beyond the usual. For the children’s go-cart, you need to be at least 135 cm tall and 9 years old. And if you’re more than 15 years you can drive the adult go-cart with 9.5 horsepower and an impressive maximum speed of 70 km per hour. If you’re 7 years old and ride with a grown-up, you can drive the double cart that is also adapted for the disabled.
An activity host will be by your side during the race. He or she will explain the rules and how you should think when it comes to the driving technique.
Everyone is welcome for an unforgettable visit

There are four different race packages to choose between:
- Stockholm Mini
- Grand Prix Race
- Monza Pro
- Team Building Grand Prix
Depending on the number of bookings, there is also possible to stop by for drop-in driving but is recommended that you contact the center before you show up. During the popular Saturdays, the go-kart racing has a strict 15-year limit.
Those who are not attracted to go-cart racing and are 15 years old and up, have the opportunity to play Segway polo, dodgeball or Segway slalom on the artificial turf. Segway polo is similar to horse polo, the difference is that the horses are exchanged for modern Segways. In the dodgeball, you first have to practice on the Segway for about an hour, and after the lesson, the classic game begins. In the Segway slalom, the participants are divided into groups and then compete against each other. All Segway activities include full equipment.
Depending on the weather, you can also book a guided Segway tour around the beautiful Djurgården.
In the pentathlon, with 3 or 5 events, you can choose between sumo wrestling, basketball, bungy run and bull ride in addition to the go-kart and Segway. In other words, there is a fun activity for everyone in the family. Your personal activity host is available throughout the pentathlon, and you wrap up the day with a prize-giving.
For larger parties of twelve people or more, it’s possible to pre-book food from the American or Italian cuisine. Enjoy the delicious Parma ham, get festive with the cajun grilled chicken or choose some other delicious meal from the menu.
So what are you waiting for? Take your family on a fun trip, book the bridal shower, or why not have a great after work with your colleagues at SMC Gokart?
