Birthday party
Nov 2017
We had our son's 13th birthday party at this venue. There is a waiting area with hot drinks and snacks. Kids enjoyed themselves thoroughly.. Safety marshalls supervised the evet all through calling out some over enthusiastic teenagers making the event safe. We had a host setting up the birthday cake and drinks for the party.
Most of the venue was cold (November) so will need to have your jacket on all the time.

Had a very fun time with 10 people on the track at a time. There was also an area next to the track where spectators could stand and watch the karts race past. Overall a good place to go if u want to have lots of fun

One size balaclava
Good circuit, which is a reasonable challenge as painted concrete. Make you buy balaclava but only one size and can be a tight squeeze. All other equipment of good standard from overalls to karts.

I attended the Kings Norton F1K venue with a stag party (prior to the more traditional stag pursuits I would add!) on Saturday 3rd August 2014. We were disappointed that another group had been booked to race at the same time as ourselves when the person who made the booking was convinced that our party had sole use of the venue. As a result, the track was very crowded, I'd say over crowded, and we weren't racing with just our friends; not the experience we'd hoped for. On top of that, we were allocated only an hour with two drivers per kart, where we'd been expecting 90 minutes with three drivers (this would obviously have gone some way toward easing the overcrowding on the track). We didn't get an hour's racing though; the clock was started while the cars were being positioned prior to race start, eating up five or six minutes of our race time. The pre race brief was good but we weren't advised that the pit lane, used for driver changes, would close some 15 minutes before the end of the race and as a result, I didn't get a second drive and my partner was whizzing (well, not exactly whizzing!) round the track confused as to why I wasn't ready for our pre-arranged pit stop. So, F1K, I believe you were squeezing profit out of the venue at the expense of the customer experience; we were mis-sold a product and perhaps I should take you to task with consumer protection groups; I may well do so. There wasn't an opportunity for customer feedback on the day as the results etc were delivered via microphone from an elevated office window. Up Your game or lose repeat business; you've already lost ours!

Thank you for your review. The event that you booked for was an Open Le Mans Party Package which is an open session racing against other teams on the day. We always like to turn a negative situation into a positive and would of been great if we had been given the opportunity to explain and resolve this on the day of your session.

WOW just wow

I was visiting Birmingham for 3 days and i love karting, this place was close so i booked in. I wasn't expecting much as it was only a 450m which is not big, but when i arrived at the track we were greeted well and informed of everything we need to know. once we had our suits on we did briefing and then headed to the track. As soon as i saw the karts i was puzzled to see a slightly odd looking kind of engine. i suddenly realised that these karts were going to be quick. my suspicion was so answered as normal karts dont pull away from a stand still that well but these, these karts pulled away without a judder or anything, my hopes of enjoying the day increased dramatically. once I had pulled out of the pits i realised that i was 2 laps down on everyone plus they had been here before so i knew my chances of getting the most laps were slim. but to my amazement i seamed to be getting good laps, around 26.5 consistently. i soon start reeling in the other competitors and i soon find myself overtaking these regulars whilst getting some good laps in. every second im learning the track and adapting and im ever closing in on 1st. its about 10 mins to go and i am now in first and lapping last place, long story short i get the fastest lap of the race with a 25.8 and had lapped first place to achieve 61 laps, so effectively had overtaken everyone 3 times. fantastic visit and i will return, thanks guys,

Excellent fun but could be cleaner
I visited F1 on Saturday having not been for a couple if years and we entered the endurance race which was excellent fun. The set up, organisation and karts are all excellent.

We raced for an hour here in the endurance race whereas the last time I did this in the Heathrow location it was two hours but it really did not detract from a cracking afternoon.

I will offer one caveat and that is the cleanliness.... I mean not be too dismissive as it is the same at all venues but the gloves and helmets stunk and the gloves had never been washed which is poor given the fact they are probably used five or six times a day!

The helmets I get but why can't a venue like this offer balaclava's to go over your face before putting the helmet on?

Rant over.... This was great fun but do something about the apparel and you might attract more people
