Piaggio Ape and Go Kart Race Experience for One
Enjoy the thrill of a Piaggio Ape, combined with high-octane karting action during this fantastic racing experience in Hertfordshire. The zippy three-wheeled motors have been an Italian icon since 1949 and they've now been upgraded to racing spec to reach up to 35mph. Get started with an introduction to driving the Piaggio Ape, then split into teams of two and enjoy a few practise laps to get a feel for the controls. Then it's race time! Like a proper Le Mans start, drivers sprint across the track, before hopping into the Piaggio Ape and zooming around the circuit, pausing at the pits halfway through to switch drivers. Next up is karting. Make like Lewis Hamilton and embark on a race to the finish line. Points from both races are combined to crown the winning team.
- Experience the unique thrill of Piaggio Ape racing at Rye House
