About Sidetrax

Sidetrax is a locally owned family business that has been years in the making. The Snyders family has been involved in Go-karts for over twenty years whether it be fixing them, driving them, or competing in competitions. However, as the years went on and more friends stopped riding go-karts due to both the increase of time and cost of maintaining a kart and yearly membership. We wanted to make it easier and more affordable to ride go-karts with friends, family, and workmates thus Sidetrax was born. It was no easy feat, but after 4 years of planning Sidetrax opened its doors in December 2018 and has been a beloved part of Mackay ever since. The story doesn’t end here though, Sidetrax aims to slowly add more attractions to better accommodate everyone, previously junior karts and a double seater kart were added, and the latest addition is the long awaited Dodgem Karts.

Sidetrax has been around for a while now and wouldn’t be here at all without the support of locals so thank you and we hope to see you all soon 🙂

Karting is part of our family

Our family has always dreamt of opening a go-karting business to make go-karting more accessible to everyone. Sidetrax is here for those that don’t own karts that still want to experience the fun and excitement. The dream took almost 20 years to become a reality and we’re so excited to share our passion for go-karting with the Mackay region.
