Put those driving skills to the test with a high-octane outdoor Grand Prix karting day in Hertfordshire. Start with a safety briefing before donning official race wear and taking part in a 15 minute qualifying session to get used to the track and determine your grid position for the main event. After catching some breath, it’s time for action- tear around the challenging Rye House track, referred to as ”The Silverstone of karting” by F1 driver David Coulthard, in a speedy 360cc racing kart for up to 45 minutes and become a champion! Afterwards, the day’s winning top three drivers get a trophy, the winner gets a bottle of bubbly, and everyone gets an official lap printout. This really is as close as it comes to being a real F1 racer.


Runs at least once a week (could be a weekend or a weekday) throughout the year.


The venue is not weather dependent but should the organisers feel conditions on the day are at all dangerous, a full credit would always be offered.

How long does the experience last?

How many other people?
