The race sessions for every group size and age!
This format is definitely a fan favourite because of just how easy it is to have fun! After a full safety briefing you will be able to really get to know the kart, the track and hopefully after a few sessions and extra tips here and there from our staff crew. Learn the art of indoor karting and see those seconds fall of your lap times. With two 12 minute sessions out on track with breaks between each to study your personalised electronically-timed, lap time print-outs this format really is the key to getting to grips with karting.
Who can kart?
Anybody over the age of 12 years old will be able to participate in the Adult version of this format as there will only be Adult karts available out on track. The Adult karts are more powerful so therefore all drivers will need to be at least 13 years old with an inside leg measurement of at least 29 inches so that they can comfortably reach the pedals and be able to control the kart safely.
For anyone wanting to race with children between the ages of 8 and 12 check out our Open Timed Race Session (Mixed) Session page!
What is the format?
After registering at reception, you will be given race suits before being asked to meet a member of the staff in the Fuel Bar. You will then be fully briefed, listening carefully for those top tips to help you round the track! Once everybody is good to go it’s off to the trackside to meet your karts and get suited and booted into your gloves and helmet. After staff check that you are OK with your accelerator and break pedals you are out onto the track and this is where our Open Timed Race Sessions get their popularity – it doesn’t matter how many people you overtake, it’s your lap times that will determine where you come on the leaderboard (and free lap time print-outs) at the end of each session. After your 2 or 3 sessions you will see how quickly your lap times decrease! Did you come top? Jump on the podium for that classic shot before going home victorious!
