Junior Outdoor Karting
It was at this outdoor circuit, aged just 11, that Lewis Hamilton was first discovered as a potential champion. Start by receiving a safety briefing and then let that competitive streak loose with a 20 minute session on the 300 metre club circuit. Be behind the wheel of a petrol kart which reaches speeds of up to 20 mph (and believe us, that will feel twice as fast in a kart). After a break to catch a breath, see how the professionals do it with a mind- blowing ten lap high-speed passenger ride on the circuit in a 40 mph twin seated kart.
