Buckmore Park is one of the most famous and successful karting circuits in the UK. Two British Formula 1 World Champions learned their craft at this challenging twisty international circuit. None other than Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, two of the fastest and most skillful drivers in racing. Karting is considered to be the perfect starting point for all those wishing to get into racing and surprisingly, in a quick kart, it is one of the closest things to racing in a Formula 1 car! So if you want to get into this very competitive sport or just want some karting fun then you can't go wrong with Buckmore Park.
This voucher entitles you to enter either a Grand Prix which takes place on their 600m National circuit or a 30 minute endurance event which will take place on the International circuit.
On arriving at the centre you will sign on and get suited up in a helmet and racing overalls. This will be followed by a safety briefing and instructions on the kart controls. For these races you'll be driving the RX390 karts which are ideal for both novice drivers and those with previous karting experience. The Grand Prix takes place on the shorter but challenging National Circuit, with practice, three heats and a final for all drivers. The 30 minute endurance takes place on the full international circuit, with practice and 30 minutes of non-stop racing. The experience ends with a presentation of trophies to the fastest drivers.
