Karting tests your driving skills and endurance to the utmost, so it's no surprise that this is the training ground for today's top Formula One drivers. We've selected some of the country's most demanding circuits so you can be sure of a fun-packed, exciting time.
On arriving at the centre your instructor will begin by giving you a safety briefing, instructions on your kart controls and you'll be provided with protective clothing. To familiarise yourself with the karts and the circuit there will be a few initial practice laps. The typical programme then consists of heats, semi-finals and a heart thumping final. At some locations you will receive 2 sets of 15 minutes competitive racing. If you're the fastest round the track, you'll be awarded a prize trophy. What a great souvenir to take home to remind you of your special day out! The precise programme is dependent upon the location, please check on booking.
Please note: At the Warrington site you will complete your experience on the standard track. At the Essex site you may experience 2 sets of 15 minute competitive sessions if a challenge is not available on your requested booking date.
