Next, take part in a high-speed 10 minute qualifying session to get acquainted with the Rye House track and determine grid position for the big race. Once revved up, compete against other drivers in a full-throttle 20 minute race and feel the incredible speed and force of the kart while trying to negotiate the track and become overall victor!
