Visited KNE twice in 2 weeks each time the equipment and the circuit were excellent, especially considering it’s an outside track in winter. The staff were also really friendly and helpful
If there’s any downside it’s that it isn’t advertised better against some of the boring indoor venues

Visited in October and thankfully weather was dry, fantastic experience, track is great setup and cars were great also. Probably the best carting i have done especially as outdoor as you have so much more space

Good day out but disappointed at the end
Jul 2021 • Friends
Loved the experience, always my go-to for a go kart track. Massive outdoor track with plenty of karts and very safe. I've not been in years but nothing has changed. Still the best track locally.

I'm a little disappointed this time as I never received a t-shirt for finishing second but 1st and 3rd did!... I'm guessing this was because I was in a group of 3, 1 of which couldn't attend no and no refund could be given.

All in all a good visit but not happy with being singled out because we weren't in a big group... Even though we all paid the same entrance fee.

Fantastic!
Jul 2020
Did the Karting experience for the first time with my son here last night.I really would like to compliment everyone there for the professional way the set up is run.You arrive and sign in then off to get suited up before an explanation of rules,flags etc.Then choose a helmet and into your kart.Unfortunately,during the 15 minute qualifying session my kart had a persistent misfire and conked out just as grid positions were being given!Pushed back to the pit lane I had to rejoin from there in another so I think I was near last.7th by lap 4.
They really are incredible little machines,very seat of the pants and responsive.
TOP TIP..try to balance the kart on the throttle,braking hard on corners makes you spin!
A great treat for a birthday,I enjoyed it so much will definitely be back.Thanks again!

Great for Stags!
Mar 2020
Went here for my brother's stag doo and we had pre-booked Paintballing and the Grand Prix go-karting race.

Sign-in was straightforward, and then we were taken up to the paintballing area and given a demonstration along with overalls and masks, and shown how to use and load the paintball guns. There were 3 different stag groups present so we were split into two mixed teams and participated in several different paintball games witin the paintball arena. The arena is a sloped embankment, quite muddy but grassy with several obstacles and barricades in place for hiding behind, and a bunker. Fantastic fun, great game modes such as Team Deathmatch, Infected (Zombie killer) etc. It was my first time paintballing and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The activity lasted around 2 hours total.

We then went back to the reception area for food, basic fare was burgers which had been pre-booked. The burgers weren't anything too brilliant - similar to a microwavable rustler burger but did the job to keep us going.

Onwards to the grand-prix we received racing overalls, gloves, balaclarva and helmet and sat through a safety presentation. The grand-prix starts with a 15 minute fastest lap time trial to determine the placings for the race, followed by a 30 minute grand prix race. The track is fantastic, lots of bends and places to throw the hammer down. It was my first experience of outdoor go-karting but it was excellently arranged and very professional.

Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for outdoor activites for a birthday or stag and would be tempted to return in the future (once I've practiced my karting skills further!)

A fantastic day all around 5*.

They are very safety oriented with training before they go on track, they have a training track for 8 year olds before they can go on the 800 mtr track..equipment provided, a very special treat.
