EXPERIENCE THE THRILL OF KARTING AS A FAMILY
Looking for a way to inject some excitement into your next family day out or have you been wishing that you could all be out on the track whizzing around with your karting confident family members? Well we think that this could well be the answer to your next family activity.
After recent feedback from Cadet and Adult karters alike we felt that it was time to put some track time aside for those karters who feel that they could do with a little more guidance out on track.
We are certain that once you understand karting more your confidence will build and together with our friendly and extremely knowledgeable track staff your family will be fighting it out for top spot in no time.
WHO CAN RACE?
Our Kids & Family Track Taster Sessions have been created specifically to allow both Cadet and Junior Karters the chance to race alongside friends, older siblings and parents.
Children need to be 8 years old and above with an inside leg measurement of at least 25 inches to be able to control one of our Cadet Karts safely and Junior Karters who race in our Adult Karts are those children above the age of 13 years old who have an inside leg measurement of at least 29 inches (measurements to be taken from crotch to heel of shoe).
Depending on your group size other family groups may be on the track at the same time.

WHAT’S THE FORMAT?
Once you know your steering wheel from your brake pedals it will be time to ease yourself into your allocated kart and get yourself ready to go. After a quick brake test, you will be asked to enter the track for your first session, there’s no need to worry though as everyone on track with you is there for the same reason; to try karting, test their skills, and to have FUN! As soon as you get out on to the open track it’s up to you and for ten minutes you will be able to test your boundaries as well as the karts (hopefully not the barriers!), don’t worry the track staff are well trained and will be on hand to keep the session flowing so take it as fast or slow as you feel comfortable and build up your confidence. When your 10 minute session is up the chequered flag is flown and you will need to make your way back to the pits where you will be given your personalised lap times and given tips and hints from the track staff who have been watching your session – remember to ask them questions if you are unsure about anything!
Hopefully now, with a head full of tips on how to improve and the confidence to put them to the test, when you get back out onto the track for your second 10 minute session you will get chance to feel the exhilaration that we at TeamSport know and love – who knows you might even beat your previous times and catch the karting bug!
