A fun Experience available in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire.
Push the pedal to the metal with a fast and furious endurance karting experience for five. Rye House, referred to as ”The Silverstone of karting” by F1 driver David Coulthard, is where Lewis Hamilton started out and the venue provides a real high-octane thrill for motor racing fans. Kick off with a safety briefing before being kitted out in the latest race wear. Next, get ready for a 15 minute practise session to get acquainted with the track. Once ready, take part in a thrilling two hour endurance race against other teams – each complete a series of jaw-dropping laps in a 360 cc racing kart (a total of 135 minutes per team) in a bid to become champions! Afterwards trophies, a bottle of bubbly and lap printouts are awarded to the winning team.
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.
Lasts around four hours in total, with two hours and fifteen minutes of driving split between the team.
