We booked as a group of about 7 of us of all different ages and abilities. The people running it are really friendly and after just a few minutes you are zooming around! Highly recommend!

5 competitive guys had great time racing around the track: good balance between exhilaration and fun. Well worth the visit but check the wind: the organisers will give you an honest assessment of the wind before you commit.
