“Ridiculous.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

This place is awful, the staff are terrible and rude!! Our kart was OBVIOUSLY broken, asked for new kart was refused and was told it was fine. Asked for a refund and was told "You've paid now" so no refund. Asked to see the manager and was refused again. The staff holding grudges against our complaints black flagged us every lap ignoring other teams unsafe driving around us. For nearly £40 a head this was a joke.

“Great Track”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

As owner drivers, we race and test here on monthly basis. It is a really nice, well equipped track with great facilities. (gorgeous chicken wraps). It is also very well organised. The track is set in beautiful countryside and is approximately 20 minutes from junction 16 on the M1.

“Why not visit a Kart Race Meeting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

24 close races for Karts on the main circuit proves an excellent way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Run by Stars you never know you may be the first to spot a future Formula 1 star for this is the sport they started in with competitors aged 7 to 60+. Looking around the paddock makes you realise how far this sport has progresses from the old Go Kart days. They run a meeting once a month and well worth taking the family. I certainly enjoyed a sunny Sunday at Wilton Mill.

“Fantastic fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Had a groupon voucher with friends. Whilton Mill were very accommodating and let us upgrade to race on the main circuit.
Would recommend this venue to anyone. The track is challenging and extremely fast.

“Terrible dont waste your money on the quad biking.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Do not waste your money on the quad biking. We booked a party of 5 only to be told on arrival that they only had 3 quads and they would have to take it in turns. We suggested 2 of the party would go karting but they wanted us to pay another £35 even though we had already paid £45 for the quads. One member of the party was so frustrated half way through he dropped out completely at this point they brought out a fourth quad. Unsure why they didn't do this at the beginning. Every body was told they had to drive behind the instructor in single file at all times. This was not what we were told at the point of booking and the experience was certainly not what their website is selling. We did complain to the instructor who was not accommodating and didn't seem to care. .
