This evening racing kart session takes place on an outdoor circuit
RT8 390 cc karts can reach speeds of up to 70 mph!
Practise first then go for the 45 minute endurance race
Trophies await the top three racers
Kart at an amazing outdoor circuit where many a Formula 1 driver started out (including the likes of British drivers Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button). Start off with an essential safety briefing with other guests, followed by ten minutes of practise laps to get used to the karts and the full outdoor international circuit. Slide behind the wheel of a RT8 390 cc kart, a machine capable of reaching a speed of up to 70 mph. Then drive against the other participants in a 45 minute endurance race ideal for novice drivers and kart racing experts alike. Every driver receives printed lap times and the experience concludes with a trophy presentation for the top three drivers. Who dares wins!
Weekday evenings, once a month throughout the year.
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.
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 in the event of cancellation. Unused laps can be credited for another visit.
The event lasts for two to three hours, with 55 minutes driving time (including practise). Safety rules dictate that missing any of the initial briefing means not being able to take part, so please don't be late.
