Carting in Goa
Carting is becoming more and more popular in Goa and in recent years it became a very fashionable hobby. The state has only two equipped tracks for carting — one in North Goa and one in South Goa.
The best and the largest carting track in all of India is located in Nuvem town, in Salcette Taluk (Salcette region), a little bit north from the city of Margao on a national NH17 Highway.
Go-Karting Track in Nuvem town is situated on a hill in the northeast part of the town. If you are driving from the south, turn right after the hospital which is impossible to miss, and if you are driving from the north than turn left after you pass Padre Conceição College of Engineering.

There are lots of turns of different levels of complexity, among which skilled fans of this type of sport and fun entertainment can take very steep and difficult tracks to overcome.
