Karting is considered to be the perfect starting point for all those wishing to get into racing and surprisingly, in a quick kart, it is one of the closest things to racing in a Formula 1 car! If you have never tried anything like this before then this experience will give you a great taste of karting. So in the immortal words of legendary racng commentator, Murray Walker, 'Go, Go, Gooooo!'
On arriving at the centre you will sign on and get suited up in a helmet and racing overalls. This will be followed by your instructor giving a safety briefing and some instructions on the kart controls. Then it's time to get going. Don't worry if you're a bit nervous - you can take the track at the speed that best suits you. Please note at some venues this operates on an arrive and drive basis where if very busy you may have to wait up to an hour from arrival.
