"Great experience, within 45 minutes we were racing"
Dave Wenner, North London.
WHAT IS AN OPEN KART RACING EVENT?
Not enough drivers to book an exclusive event...open karting 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.

ARRIVE & DRIVE PRACTICE
Ideal for novices and experienced karters. No minimum group size.
A hair-raising 30 minute challenge against the clock - a 5 minute practice session, 10 minute qualifying heat followed by the 15 minute main event. Perfect for first timers as well as experienced karters, with just enough track time to get you hooked and wanting for more - possibly our most popular event. This is ideal for anyone looking to experience the thrill of a full karting package at an affordable price.
45 minutes of full throttle action. This event is great for groups looking to add a real element of competition to their day. Plenty of karting to satisfy even the most enthusiastic drivers - a 5 minute practice session, a 10 minute qualifying heat and a 30 minute grid start final.
So… you think you’re tough enough!? Team 70 is the first of our endurance race formats and offers you 70 minutes of adrenaline soaked race action from start to finish. Start with a 10 minute qualifying session and then blaze a trail with a 60 minute rolling start final, all wrapped up with a podium finish.
105 minutes on the track to truly test your driving abilities. An endurance race for those seeking the thrill of raw race competition. Earn poll position in a 15 minute qualifying session followed by a 90 minute rolling start final and take the glory at the podium finish.
140 minutes on the circuit including a full 20 minute practice session. For some people it's all about bragging rights on the track. This epic 2 hour race will offer you just that - whoever crosses the line in first place at the end of this behemoth event, truly has a victory to brag about.
You will be given an arrival time when booking. For events this will be 1hr before your track time, for practice, 45 minutes beforehand. Please ensure you are not late as if you arrive after this time even by 5 minutes this may affect your time on the circuit. If you are more than 10/15 minutes late you may lose your slot altogether. If you are late, you will not receive a refund under any circumstance.
Is there adequate car parking?
Yes, there is plenty of free parking for all.
Do I need a driving licence/special licence to race?
No, we have many regular customers who hold no licence at all. We provide full instruction and all drivers must attend a safety briefing and view the NKA (National Karting Association) safety video briefing.
