    Fun for all !
    Great fun for all, especially on a rainy day. Very knowledgeable and organised crew, clear instructions and a great safety briefing video. Opportunities to learn from any mistakes and how to achieve better results. Love the winners podiums, medals and alcohol free champagne to spray, it makes it extra exciting for participants.

    Awesome guys
    Was an amazing experience! They were sooo kind and caring to my 13yr old when she crashed into the back of her dad and then was too scared to continue. They made sure she was ok, delivered her to me spectating and kept a check on her - even asking her if she wanted to try again. Very caring guys xx

    Fab staff, great attraction!
    I can’t recommend the RaceWorld team more highly. They took my nervous seven year old out in the Marshall’s car and she now can’t stop talking about the experience and how much she wants to go back. My older son (11) found the racing experience a little overwhelming. The team were incredibly sympathetic and after we had finished took him out on the track to give him some pointers. I’m so grateful for all their kindness.
    Thank you for taking the time to review Raceworld Ltd. I will pass on your kind words to the team. Don't forget you have a repeat booking discount available to you. We hope that we see you again soon.

    Great afternoon
    We visited with an expectation that it would be a fun experience but were surprised at just how incredible it was. Definitely surpassed our expectations. Ben Cowell is so helpful & friendly. He's an experienced instructor & really looks after his customers. All the team are friendly & do a great job. You feel in safe hands. I can't recommend this place highly enough. We'll be back. Thank you.

    Fun, thrilling adrenaline rush! Highly reccomend. Incredible staff and very well organised.
    A great experience at Race World, fun for all the family. The team at Race World are very professional, friendly and helpful. It is very well run here and safety is their priority as well as enjoyment. The safety instructions were clear and we enjoyed a practice lap before qualifiers and then a 20-lap race. One of the members of our team was quite nervous after the first practice go so the team accommodated them really well by offering an alternative race option with one of the members of staff here - this meant that she was not excluded from the race but could enjoy it still in a different way. A huge shoutout to Ben for being so patient, understanding and just generally awesome. Plus an incredible driver! Another shoutout to Jamie who was our designated instructor - he was friendly and approachable and helped to keep us all at ease. We will be coming back here in a heartbeat. Huge amounts of fun! You will not be disappointed. Thanks guys! 🙏

    Fun day activity.
    We booked as family of 7. Easy to book online or by calling Race Workd. Staff were fantastic from booking to racing. Staff even raced in a twin car with one of our young child. Great service, staff appeared well training, and very friendly. There is a cafe and a vending machine available for refreshments. We had fun all around. Would definitely go back with family and friends. I highly recommend Race World indoor go carting. 👍

    Excellent from start to finish
    We visited for my birthday and the whole experience was brilliant. The track is challenging and fun, the karts are fast and the staff superb. After our first practice a member of the team sat down with us and showed us the racing lines with loads of tips to get quicker - showing real enthusiasm. Other than the fun of driving, the best part about the visit was the staff, nothing was too much trouble. While we were racing my mum was watching us and one of the guys came out, put a heater on for her and offered her a cup of tea - It's extremely rare to see touches like this nowadays. Keep doing what you're doing guys, you're smashing it!

    Great welcome from our session host, Ben. Thank you to all at Raceworld for making our session so enjoyable and entering into the spirit of our family challenge! The karts were very good, informative briefing, and useful tips to improve our technique. Would thoroughly recommend a visit.

    Wish we could come more often .
    What a great evening we had . For myself this is the third time others in our group have been more often .Once more we were treated so well by the staff who are always so helpfull and obliging . Being a smaller group of 8 the track times were faster and we had very few flashing beacon hold ups . ! We were given the choice of reversing the trac for our final race . This turned out to be such fun and made us all think for a few laps but soon got into the swing of it . If we lived nearer we would probaly be back sooner but with us all working as well, time is money at the end of the day . We are planning a family get together on the trac some time but may be a good 12 months I'am affraid . a big thank you to all the team for making our evening so enjoyable . Glenn

To be honest I was disappointed with our visit to Raceworld. We only booked here as we wanted a track that wasn't going to be affected by the weather. The welcome to the site was great and the staff really professional. Unfortunately it would be remiss to leave out the points that detract from a good rating.

As an indoor track the site is small, too small really.
The track is overcrowded. In our session there were 14 karts! This is too many when there is such a range of abilities. You spend most of your valuable track time waiting for the orange safety lights to be turned off while a crash or spin out is resolved.

The track needs resurfacing. It's an indoor concreate track so I'm not sure how the surface has what appears to be frost damage and rough sections.

To summarise, if you go, either book a session at a really quiet time so the track isn't overcrowded or visit a larger track elsewhere.

Raceworld, if you're honest with yourselves, I think you'd agree with these points.

Our family of 5 (3 adults, a 15 year old and 17 year old) visited Race World for my son’s 15th birthday. Everything was super organised right from the first phone call to ask which session was most appropriate for our group. We did a Grand Prix session consisting of 10 mins practice, 10 mins qualifying and a 20 lap race which was perfect for our family. The briefings sessions between the race sessions provided great tips to improve your lap times. Safety was taken extremely seriously. A very professionally run operation which I would recommend and would certainly visit again in the future.

Best place to go go karting!!! Our Grandparents treated us to a go karting experience and I can say that this is the best place for it! They had the best staff you could find anywhere, being kind and helpful. Its suited for all ages over the age of 12 and is Covid safe. You get a free cup of coffee/tea. It is very well organized and checked to make sure you get the fullest go kart experience. The track is very well thought out and very safe as well. I would highly recommend this to anyone especially holiday makers visiting the west country.

I visited Raceworld on a Friday, having booked 4x 10 minute sessions to get to know the track ahead of a race I’d entered. The guys at Raceworld couldn’t do enough for me! From my first interaction at the desk to friendly ‘check ins’ between sessions and even coaching tips. The whole team were encouraging and seemed genuinely interested in me and my karting journey. The track itself is good fun though overtaking opportunities are limited. I look forward to going back to race!

Visited Raceworld as a mixed age group from 10/ 45. Staff were superb, knowledgeable and safe without being fun sponges. Very patient and encouraging with the youngest in our group even taking him around the track on a double kart for the first race so he felt confident enough to go alone on the second.

Can’t recommend it highly enough. Great value for money. Very Covid secure using straightforward common sense.

Our family all enjoyed this day out. It was an hour and half to get to the venue as we are on holiday in Woolacombe but it was well worth the journey. It is really well organised with debriefing in between each race that really helped everyone improve. Karts and all equipment really great quality and the ability to give accurate lap times was fab. COVID security has been thought through and it was a fab Holiday activity

Made to feel very welcome by every member of staff.
Excellent tutorial at the start for my son, aged 10 & myself who have never been go-karting before.
My son didn’t complete the second 15 minute session as there were some very fast racers on the the track.
However, because they had a small window of availability, the staff at Raceworld let him have the track to himself for 10 minutes at the end of the session to allow him to complete his race. A very nice gesture that we didn’t ask for but made my son very happy.
They also gave him a medal.
Overall, a superb experience that we will look to repeat when we are next in Exmouth.
Thank you for to everyone at Raceworld.

Went a long for a Sunday evening race with a group of friends. Excellent circuit offering a great challenge. although the track may look small, the layout makes for excellent racing with a combination of technical tight corners and a decent straight with a long sweeping bend. overtaking is tricky but not impossible which only adds to the excitement and challenge as you need to pick your points of attack properly. Be prepared for an upper body workout, especially on longer races as it is surprising how physical it!

Very friendly staff and well organised. Easy to get to by car. it is quite far out from Exeter so public transport may be tricky.

Would definitely recommend. Will be visiting again

Great couple of hours flying around their indoor track with the wife and my 2 sons, staff were brilliant especially with the kids. I would definitely recommend to anybody who is interested in Karting / racing, or just a bit of competitive sport. Top marks to race world and all of their members of staff. Covid measures are absolutely spot on so if your are concerned about that then don’t be with this place because they are completely on it. Thanks for a great experience RACEWORLD and well done for adjusting your procedures to meet the current Covid needs.

With teenage boys, karting is one of the things we do when regularly visiting the West Country for family hols. This is by far the most professional set up we have experienced. The staff are enthusiastic, polite and knowledgable. The equipment top notch, from the karts to the helmets and the safety procedures very clear and comprehensive. The indoor track is great fun with lots of twists and turns making it as challenging as you want. Big thank you to the team for looking after my boys.
