We looked ourselves and the kids 8 and 11, to the karting centre, and paid for 3x10min sessions. $$$. But we knew that karting is not cheap. This would my youngest sound first time and my wifes. The team on site were kind and helpful...More

Great Karting fun. Reasonably challenging circuit. Things to note: Change your car if under performing, several cars were on our session. Age. The 280cc cars are limited to over 17. Can recommend, would go back.

We visit as a party of 12 (very mixed ages down to 5). We all had a shot (including the 5yr old in a twin kart). Very reasonably priced. The weather was horrendous and that made it all the much more fun. We hadn't planned...More

High octane run in the otherwise serene calm placid highland. The staff were friendly and helpful. Children loved the track and special kudos to the staff who maintained it in spite of extreme weather conditions. Kart range is another plus . We returned the next...More

We rocked up for the Arrive & Drive session and had a great laugh on a recent visit to Aviemore. The track is well laid out and the facilities are spot on. We had a brilliant time chasing each other around and pretty much had...More

Visited sat 20th July afternoon. My teenage kids were determined to beat Dad! Of course they had little chance. My son left the pits with me behind. I could not match his acceleration. My daughter passed rapidly in the straight. I kept at max throttle...More

Visited the track on the 11th. We all tried out the blue 270cc karts and the whole family had an amazing time! The go karts ran well. The marshalls made sure eveything ran smoothly and proffesionally. The Equipment room as they called it was kept...More

Great day out, all had a great time and we paid for 2 10 minute sessions. Was quite quick and quite expensive for what it was but the boys had a great time.

A lovely venue, well laid out track and a good covered pit area. The organisers allow you to race, unlike some venues which are over-policed. Where Aviemore Kart Raceway falls short is the widely varying performance of the karts. If you're looking for some competitive...More
