My boyfriend and I did a 15 minute ride on a rainy Sunday afternoon. The safety briefing was excellent. They supplied us with the proper clothing and headgear. I was worried that the clothing might be a bit icky but I was delighted to find that they appear to launder the balaclavas and gloves after every use. The track itself... More

Great track overall. It was drizzling with rain when we arrived-and-drive'd, but in the racing suits and helmets we were given you couldn't feel the rain at all... apart from the slippery track, which meant you had to be extra careful around the corners but actually made it more fun. The marshalls were very prompt getting us back on track... More

Although first impressions aren't great, you can see that the track itself and the karts are well cared for. The safety briefing at the beginning is thorough and very useful. You might want to bring an extra couple of £1 coins to buy your own balaclava rather than use one of the free rented ones which have probably been sweated... More

Although it's not a "first class" facility, I have enjoyed the use of this great little track a few times over several years. It gives opportunities for close racing, and the equipment is as even as you can expect from an "arrive and drive" organisation. The track surface is a little worn and broken up in places, but this just... More

When we arrived the place looked run down and old. The safety briefing was explained good but the room it was in was crammed and it was in the same room as the kitchen! When we went out on track the weather was dry. However the track was slippery and the go-kart I was in the steering wheel was faulty.... More

Thank you for your comments. Due to the stadium being a Conservation area and the Old tote Building used by the Karting being a listed building, unfortunately we have no control over their appearance. The Karts steering has no faults, the track slippery condition will cause drastic under-steer if your corner entry speed is to high, this is normal and... More

My son was interested in having a go at carting and I wanted to find out about getting a session for his 11th birthday. I rang to find out more and spoke to Andy Cooper, who was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He recommended that it was best for my son to start with a lesson so that he would begin... More

The manager was extremely rude, shouting and very disrespectful for absolutely no reason. Obviously they don't want customers. The staff on the field however were helpful.

A group of eight of us went here for my son's stag night. We bboked as a ten, two dropped out, but they didn't charge us for the extra two. Cost £37.50, and lasted around 60 minutes After watching a safety video we were supplied with clothing and helmets, which were in good condition. A few laps practice, and then... More

Visited this venue at the beginning of my future son in laws stag do & was not disappointed. First impressions when you first drive into the place looks like a makeshift piece of discarded land & the reception area is a treasure hunt for the first minute or two. Because the ex-greyhound venue has moved, which is now the kart... More
