Get behind the wheel of a RT8 390 cc kart, which reaches speeds of up to 70 mph (and believe us – that feels twice as fast in a kart). Start off with a safety briefing, followed by qualifying laps to get used to the karts and the full outdoor international circuit. Then let your competitive streak loose in three quick-fire race heats. The leading point’s scorers go on to take part in the grand final, followed by a trophy presentation for the top three drivers.




Racing might be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (i.e. ice or snow) which would make driving at high speed dangerous. Contact is made if the experience is cancelled. Unused laps are credited for another visit.

How long does the experience last?

The event lasts for four to five hours. Safety rules dictate that the full initial briefing must be attended and participation is not possible for latecomers.

How many other people?

Up to 60 drivers take part, 15 in each race.

Can I take people to watch?

Spectators are welcome. The venue has state-of-the-art clubhouse facilities serving hot and cold food and offering excellent viewing areas.

What do I wear?

Wear trainers or similar flat shoes. A clean helmet, balaclava, competition-style race suit, gloves and rib protectors will be provided.

Are there any restrictions?

Minimum age is 16. Drivers don’t need a driving licence or any driving experience. Minimum height is 5′, maximum height is 6’4”. Maximum weight 18 stone.

Anything Else?
