"Great experience, within 45 minutes we were racing"

Dave Wenner, North London.

WHAT IS AN OPEN EVENT?

Not enough drivers to book an exclusive event...open events give you the chance to compete against other like minded drivers in some of our larger karting events for as little as £50 per person (team of 5 in a Team 140 endurance). Enter one of our individual races on your own or with a group of friends and take your karting experience up a notch. No experience necessary - we'll show you exactly what to do.
