Outdoor Grand Prix Karting
Get behind the wheel of a RT8 390 cc kart, which reaches speeds of up to 70 mph (and believe us - that feels twice as fast in a kart). Start off with a safety briefing, followed by qualifying laps to get used to the karts and the full outdoor international circuit. Then let your competitive streak loose in three quick-fire race heats. The leading point's scorers go on to take part in the grand final, followed by a trophy presentation for the top three drivers.

- Availability Description
One event is held every month, generally on a Wednesday evening but alternatively (and very occasionally) on a different weekday evening.
- Participant Guidelines
Minimum age is 16. Drivers don't need a driving licence or any driving experience. Minimum height is 5', maximum height is 6'4''. Maximum weight 18 stone.
Racing might be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (i.e. ice or snow) which would make driving at high speed dangerous. Contact is made if the experience is cancelled. Unused laps are credited for another visit.
The event lasts for four to five hours. Safety rules dictate that the full initial briefing must be attended and participation is not possible for latecomers.

Up to 60 drivers take part, 15 in each race.

Wear trainers or similar flat shoes. A clean helmet, balaclava, competition-style race suit, gloves and rib protectors will be provided.
