    Amazing
    Attended for a sprint race for my friends birthday and was greeted by the extremely friendly staff at the reception who walked us through the process of the day as we didn’t have a clue what we were doing. Staff on the track were brilliant when helping us after spinning a couple times. The verbal briefing prior to the race was done excellently and the guy doing it was very enthusiastic and full of information.
    Thank you for your kind words and five star review. We're pleased you enjoyed all elements of your visit and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

    Huge props to Gavin! and a brilliant track for a day out
    Customer service was amazing! specifically gavin at front desk. I called in twice on 02/07 with questions and both times spoke to Gavin, he was extremely helpful and i was a bit nervous in my booking but he made sure all my questions were answered etc. when I turned up to my booking on the same day, coincidentally Gavin was there and he helped book me in, there was an issue with one of the other workers moving the wrong booking around (they mistakenly moved my booking to 23/07 as they mixed me up with another customer who had a very similar name but had called in sick on 02/07 and asked to be moved to 23/07). Gavin spotted this and fixed it within 5 mins and was extremely apologetic and offered complimentary balaclavas to make up for the misunderstanding which was highly appreciated. Track itself was very very fun is huge, if you go for the SODI sprint race which is about 30 mins on the track on total, you will leave very happy and satisfied and is definitely one of the better outdoor tracks in the UK, would recommend the MK daytona track to everyone based on customer service itself. I will definitely be coming again, only an hour away from oxford and was great fun, Thank you Gavin and the team @ MK Daytona!
    Thank you so much for your five star review and kind words. We agree, Gavin is a gem! We'll share this review with him. We're glad you enjoyed your racing, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

    Great Birthday Party!
    We picked Daytona for my 10 year old sons birthday party. Staff were great and my son and his friends had a blast, so much so they want to go again and the parents want to join in next time. Big thanks to Ethan with the party food and helping us get the cake sorted!
    We're so glad your son enjoyed his birthday party, and would be proud to host his next one! See you again soon.

    The best first visit possible!
    First of all I’d like to thank Gavin, James, Ronan, Rob and EVERYONE at Milton Keynes Daytona. They made the experience so much better just by doing that tiny bit extra to help :) The track itself was awesome, turn 6 is wicked when you nail the exit, and same for turns 1 - 3, flat through 1 and then mounting the kerbs of 3 is so fun. The sodikarts were a bit underwhelming but a good warm up for the DMAX which were just incredible. The price is a bit much, but the speed, sound, feel and joy you get out of driving the kart makes it so worth it. Every lap is so rewarding, smiling the whole time under the helmet. Amazing experience, staff were awesome, track and karts were unreal! 10/10
    Thank you so much for your five star review, we're so pleased you enjoyed your first visit and we look forward to seeing you again - and putting another smile on your face!

    Great birthday treat!! 👍
    Made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived on site. Special thanks to Dan for whom nothing was too much trouble, a real credit to Daytona. Big thanks to Rob as well for explaining everything to us clearly in the pits before we went out. A thoroughly enjoyable birthday treat for Tom, made extra special by the staff today. Many thanks!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
    Thank you for your lovely review. Dan and Rob are assets to our team - we'll certainly make sure they see your kind words. We're glad Tom had a great birthday and we'll see you both again soon!

    Great staff, track and organisation
    Daytona practice laps today with the kids, seamless booking, check in and practice as usual. The emailed lap times are fantastic to know. The information and availability to hire and practice if your child is interested in go karting is great. Thanks for today, junior practice laps put back to back on the schedule mean we can do 2 to 3 and it makes the hour drive for us, worth it. The chaps who supervised and let us know how fast my kids were going were so encouraging and genuine to my children, so thank you for that. Food was good, lots of choice. Very happy kids asking to return. Thanks again Kitty

    An amazing experience in an amazing venue
    We had the most wonderful experience at Daytona MK, the facilities are amazing and the staff equally so, they’re a highly motivated and professional team eager to please. The drivers safety briefing and recording by Isabelle Graham was thorough, easy to understand and reassuring for the drivers and parents alike. On the track the carts were particularly fast and it was clear that safety was paramount, spin off’s the dealt with quickly to get the drivers back in the race safely. I’d highly recommend a days racing at Daytona following which the Double smashed cheeseburger which was unbelievable, is a must, I’d go back there again just to have another one! Thank you so much for making Amelie’s 14th birthday party so special.

    5* Experience
    We have been going to Daytona for about 8 years every 6 weeks. My cousin Connor is special needs so me and his race on North track together. They couldn’t be more helpful with catering for Connor’s needs. We were in today and Jay was so helpful I felt obliged to come on here and write a review. I love this place and look forward to going again soon!

We booked a teen birthday treat for our son several weeks ago excited for the experience of go karting for the first time.
With storm Dennis this weekend we rang to ask if the venue would still be open to "yes the tracks are still live". With a Non transferable or no refund which we understood on the website.
It wasnt just raining, but extreme windy weather too, we want to change our slot to next week, we were told by what we assumed was the manager who was very arrogant, we couldn't change it at all. After explaining we were not in a race just a 20 minute intro taster as a treat for our sons birthday and wanted him to enjoy a memorable experience the manager was rude and very richious about the policy. No customer service was given as the manager implied the "snowflake generation" which got me more angry with the attitude.
This was a face to face conversation and appalling with the manner and ignorance not to be able to just move our experience to next week. The place obviously runs in all weathers no matter what the situation or individual case is,and my point was it was meant to be a good experience which turned into an unnesccessay aurgement.
We didn't have our slot by choice and left the place never to go back there with the pure greedy manners of the place. You've had our money so stick you racing track. Today's customer service needs to be a little more flexible if you wish to stay in business.
Our local outside karting place in Daventry was closed today so that tells us, they assessed the danger of Health and Safety. We have booked there instead.
Long term it's all about the experience.

Hi sandrah5711, We are sorry that the experience you received at our venue didn’t meet your expectations. We also appreciate that your son’s safety and enjoyment is of the upmost importance to you. It’s also our highest priority as well. We would never put on sessions which put any of our drivers at risk. Yes, the conditions when you came to the circuit were challenging but they were completely safe. When you arrived at the venue, we had approximately 50 juniors driving on our circuits having a great time. We’ve spoken to the venue managers and asked for reports from staff. From our side, the staff have noted a phone call from a lady asking whether the session was still going ahead which our staff confirmed that it was. The staff member at reception has said they were greeted rather abruptly by you in the venue without an introduction but rather you saying that you wanted your son to be transferred to another session the following week. The staff member tried to calmly explain that she could move your son to an earlier session on the same day if it helped (which was a beginner session). She noted that you wouldn’t let her speak and were adamant that transferring your son to a session earlier the same day wasn’t sufficient. Our business model is similar to that of airlines and therefore our policy for transferring drivers to later dates when current sessions aren’t cancelled, is something we don’t allow. We do this for several reasons but most importantly because we’re not able to sell places once they’ve been taken by other drivers. Therefore the manager would not have been able to transfer the session and we can understand how the conversation would have been difficult. It appears you weren’t happy with any of the offers that the team tried to give in order to accommodate you. They actually said, the way you were talking to them, they felt slightly bullied when they were doing everything they could to rectify the situation and the venue manager is sure he didn’t make any derogatory comments to you. We’d be disappointed if any of our customers were disrespected and we would take action. We take our customer experiences extremely seriously but unfortunately on this occasion we wouldn’t have changed the way the situation was handled from our side. Team Daytona

A friend and I visited Daytona for a DMAX practice session after visiting most indoor London circuits and wanting a change. We came with high expectations and we certainly weren’t let down!!

The karts were completely different to any corporate kart we’d driven in the past, including abroad. The two stroke engine makes an incredible difference and the team have done a fantastic job putting these karts together. It felt much closer to what I’d expect a professional racing kart to feel like in terms of acceleration, speed, grip and the strength of the brakes. Without a doubt the fastest kart I have personally driven after visiting all London tracks and a few outdoor tracks in Spain.

After a couple of laps of getting used to the circuit and kart and warming the tyres you can start to unlock more of the karts potential which is exhilarating. The speed you can gain at certain points of the track, specifically entering corners, enable you to continue to perfect the racing line as the laps go on. What an incredibly fun experience and highly recommended. We will definitely be visiting again.

We originally booked for Saturday but got a call the week before to say we’d have to postpone as they were expecting a delivery of new DMAX karts that had been slightly delayed. The team were very helpful and managed to book us in for the next day. This also enabled us to be one of the first driving newly built karts, they were faultless and well built.

Thank you to the race director and rest of the team!

From start to finish every staff member was friendly and helpped with any questions I had.
The venue looks amazing love the circus tent themed building and the track layout is brilliant.

The reception staff are super friendly they recommended hireing a camera and buying our own gloves, really pleased with our gloves super warm and very good quality, the camera footage we got was great we can access it any time we want and show our friends.

The track staff are just as friendly helping us get the right helmet and taking us through the safty info, the karts are brilliant loved how powerful they are and managed to get a great race time of 1:12 beating Tom Cruise time.

We booked for the burger and beer deal, the burgers are amazing really tasty and come with fries well worth every penny and a really great day out.

My 14 year old daughter has been going to Daytona for a number of years now. The facility and Staff are very good. They clearly care about, and are invested in, providing an entertaining and enjoyable experience. There is a strong emphasis on safety and I have found the Staff compassionate, with good procedures in place, which is reassuring. A good entry level to Motorsport, if you want to dip your toe into the sport. You can do as little or as much as you would like. From an 'Arrive & Drive' 20 minute session, to signing up to compete in one or more of the Championships that the circuit runs. All of this without the need to supply and maintain your own Kart, or even race suit and safety equipment. Karting is an expensive hobby, but the manor in which the Championships are run at Daytona, means that the racing is equitable, whether you are new to the sport or an experienced racer. This all makes for a good and social event for all the competitors to have some fun and enjoy themselves.

End to end in planning our 11 year olds birthday party the service from the Daytona MK team was exceptional. I came in for a speculative visit 3 weeks before the date and was helped by Dan who was excellent in all the options available. Without being too pushy he attentively went through each detail of party with some objective direction too. He was patient, understanding and professional. We were sold from his advice!
On party day yesterday with 8 boys at the party plus parents the Daytona team took care of every detail every step of the way. Met by Anthony and team at the desk to sign in our party guests, kitted up and then handed over to Connor I believe over on the racing track. The boys loved every second of being on the track, from briefing, on track experience and podium celebration. All the team on track made our boys experience very exciting and importantly the parents could see boys were happy and they were kept entertained too.
It was well worth paying for the cameras on the helmets as each boy went away with personal video. The medals for every boys was a lovely touch and each were surprised and happy
Lastly we were handed over to Harrison part of the catering team who was already busy in preparing our party table and Area.I can’t thank Harrison enough as being the mother of the party boy, always thinking of the guests, I wanted it to be a special experience and he helped me end to end with every detail; cake cutting, distributing cake, table arrangements, making sure boys happy etc etc. He was very sociable and kind throughout, Thankyou Harrison, you made my life easier!
Even when I went to buy drinks for the parents the gentleman behind the bar again was very kindly and aware of customer first in philosophy. He asked one of the team to take over the tray of hot drinks to the parents in the driving area

Again a brilliant experience, we will definitely be back and each of the other parents were highly impressed, future customers here too. Thankyou Daytona MK team you are brilliant

We booked our two teens on the Junior beginners session. We were admitted to park 15 minutes before our allocated time. Any earlier than this and you will be turned away due to Covid restrictions. Once inside, we were welcomed by friendly staff who checked us in, provided suits and helmets. We had to buy a balaclava per child, but we knew this before we arrived. We were asked if we were alright with the children using their gloves or whether we had our own. We were then given an option to have a camera attached to the children's helmets, so footage of their time on the track could be recorded. This cost £10.00 per child and was well worth it. The footage is clear and has been watched so many times since. Track times are also emailed to you as soon as the session has ended. Our children really enjoyed it and we will definitely visit again and move to the intermediate session.

A great Saturday spent karting at this exciting and brilliant track. The Dmax karts are absolutely amazing. They were fantastic before but since the new exhausts have been installed, the power delivery is instant making the experience even better! The staff as always were friendly and helpful. I can't recommend enough to have a go in the DMAX if you love karting and have some experience, if not the N35 ST's are a good start to gain some experience before moving up into the DMAX for even more speed and exhilarating fun!

A fantastic day at Daytona with my 9 year old stepson as he completed the race school. A fun and very well organised day for all the kids involved, containing an informative theory session to teach driving techniques and safety, alongside plenty of track time on the national layout on the main venue circuit.

There wasn’t a long wait before the drivers were able to out on track to familiarise themselves with the karts and track, and to be assessed on their initial levels. It began with a group track walk to detail the layout, and as the day progressed, more and more track time occurred focussing on different skills The instructors went out on track as well to do ‘lead and follow’ teaching to the kids for learning racing lines and braking points. With the theory session (and lunch) completed alongside the track sessions, the day finished with practice race grid starts, a qualifying and finally group races for the drivers to enjoy and put their newly learnt skills into practice.

My stepson got so much out of the day. When we arrived he was so nervous and was contemplating not participating. The staff were brilliant and once he sat in the kart, he never looked back. By the end of the day he was a completely different boy, full of confidence and having such a good time, managing to shave seconds off of his early morning familiarity laps.

I really recommend the Race School, great for kids to learn and have a fun day in itself, with lots of time in the karts and friendly staff. Superb.

From the second I walked in I felt welcome, after instantly being greeted on arrival by the warm front of house staff. This warm feel continued for the duration of my visit, and all staff that I encountered were very efficient and professional. The drive was enjoyable, with a track that proved tough in the conditions, but overall it was super fun right up until the chequered flag. I would highly recommend a visit, and don't leave without tasting the burgers! Delicious.
