Junior Arrive & Drive

IT’S SO EASY... CHECK AVAILABILITY, BOOK, THEN TURN UP & DRIVE!

" Great experience,within 45 minutes we were racing"

Dave Wenner North London

What is Junior Arrive and Drive?

 

Arrive & Drive is the simplest way to get out on circuit and burn some rubber. Ideal for novices and total beginners as well as those looking to hone their skills. No experience necessary - full instruction and supervision supplied. We run 15 minute timed sessions at weekends; 20 mins during off-peak - Mon-Fri. 

From age 8 and 4' 4" tall your budding racer can take control in one of our Cadet karts - and at age 10 and 5' tall one of our Senior karts.  Both come fully equipped with limpet like handling, full wraparound bumpers, and are capable of speeds up to 45mph. 

All Junior sessions are run as 'Family Sessions' and the only adults allowed to join in are parents/guardians. We run up to 12 in a session, which we feel is the right balance for fun and safety.  For larger group sizes, please call the office on 01708 863070.

Full laptime printouts supplied at the end of each session. Who knows? Maybe we'll find the next Lewis Hamilton!
 

Use our online reservation system to confirm your slot.
 

RACE FORMAT IS SUITABLE FOR...

 

...all skill levels - beginners, novices, intermediates, and advanced; all group sizes - we will split groups into suitable numbers.

KIDS ARRIVE AND DRIVE WHAT HAPPENS ON THE DAY...

You'll be greated with a warm smile and asked to sign-in on one of the computers. Next it's kitting up in racewear and the chance for mum to take a few snaps for the family album. Next, it's upstairs to the Briefing Room where one of our experienced instructors will show you the safety and instruction video and answer any questions you may have. Then it's time to head down to the pitlane, get your crash helmet and get comfy in your kart. Once the pit marshal has checked you're good to go...

...visor down and out onto the circuit.  The first few laps should be used wisely to warm up your tyre, get a feel for the kart and the circuit layout. Once your confidence builds, where space allows, it's time to put in a quick lap and really get the adrenaline pumping.

The chequered flag is waved and it's time to ease off the throttle and slowly make your way back to the pits. Park your kart neatly, jump up and pop your helmet back on the rack.  Make your way over to the Race Control tower and see how you faired - all drivers receive a full printout for their session, detailing all their lap times, with a breakdown of the fastest lap and average speed.
