COMBAT KARTS

Combat Karts - Where Racing Meets Gaming

Race through a series of nail-biting laps as you compete with other players for the podium. Use boosts and bonuses to increase your speed or slow down the opposition - like a real-life video game!

Forget traditional racing.  Have you got the driving skills to come out on top?  Book online now and challenge your friends and family!   


WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

This experience features a practice, a qualifying and then a grid started race split over two 15 minute sessions on the track for every driver. *Please note that Combat Kart sessions at Reading, Preston and Liverpool are two 12 minute sessions.

There are two ways to experience Combat Karts:

  • An Open/Standard Session. There may be other drivers on the track with you.
  • An Exclusive Track Session. This means it will only be your group on the track.  Please note that a minimum number of drivers is required to be eligible for an exclusive session.  This varies by location.

Comfortable clothing is a must. We provide everything you need to get behind the wheel, including a protective jumpsuit.

Scarves and sashes must be removed. Jewellery should also be removed.

Due to safety and hygiene, you must know your helmet size when you arrive at the venue. Unfortunately, we are unable to try on multiple helmets to find your fit. Find your fit here.

Can I wear my own helmet?  Yes, as long as they are full-face helmets and meet ISO standards. All helmets must have a clear visor.  All road-safe helmets should meet this standard however our trackside team will give it double-check. 

Can I wear my own racewear?  If you have ISO standard racewear, you are welcome to wear it, but the track staff may check it on the day to confirm it meets the requirements.  Motorcycle leathers/race suits do not meet the same standard as karting race suits so they cannot be worn. 

Can I wear my own GoPro / helmet cam?  If you are using your own helmet, you can use your own Go-Pro / helmet cam as long as they are securely mounted.  When using our helmets, you cannot attach anything to them. However, we do have a headcam service where you can rent cameras for your visit. We do not allow chest mounts or cameras mounted directly to our karts.

I’m bringing other people’s kids, what do I need to know?  All players under the age of 16 years old, must be signed in by an accompanying adult (over 18 years old). If you are bringing a group of players under the age of 16, you will need to provide details when signing in of the player’s date of birth, address and emergency contact details. 

Do parents need to sign their children in on the day or sign a waiver in advance?  We ask that all players are pre-registered onto your reservation before the day of your race. If you follow the link on your booking confirmation and you can access the waiver and register your players.
