Piaggio Ape and Karting Racing for Two
Enjoy double the fun with this Piaggio Ape and kart racing experience in Hertfordshire. The unique Italian three-wheelers may not look like they'd offer much in the way of speed, but since being upgraded to racing spec the zippy motors can reach up to 35mph! Start off with an introduction to the Ape and the chance to fit in a few practise laps, then it's race time. With a real Le Mans start, drivers sprint across the track, before hopping into their Ape and speeding around the track to their first pit-stop, where their teammate awaits their turn to drive. After, enjoy a second whirlwind race as individuals, at the wheel of a speedy go-kart each. Points from the two races are combined to award the top three teams with a trophy to take home!
