“Children's Hospice (CHAS) fund raising event.”
Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

Extreme carting hosted a fund raising event which we attended. The night raised over 10k for the children's hospice association Scotland. It was a fantastic night with lots of thrills and spills. The venue is excellent with very competent and friendly staff. My team came second last but we still loved it. Will definitely be back and are considering a company team building event here soon.

“Stag Do with a difference”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

I used Xtreme Karting and Combat in Edinburgh to help me organise my mates stag do, from transport, accommodation, restaurants, night clubs to activities and it was 1st class, I did not have to worry about a thing. Coming from the South it was always going to be difficult to know where to go in Edinburgh but with the help and the great communication from Xtreme Karting and Combat it made my life much easier. I would use them again and would recommend them to everone.

“Great fun!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Attending a Charity karting Evening recently and loved the organisation and enthusiasm of everyone. There are two viewing areas, one behind glass with tables and chairs and another on top of this area which is 'out in the warehouse' beside the karting. Its freezing out there so if planning on watching from there, wra up warm!
Pricing is good and there always seems to be events on - go see it!

Went with CCUK to karting here. Friendly staff, good track and the karts were very good. Try it out if you are looking for a wee adrenalin rush.

My Nephew was taking the karting school there, i went along on his last session to see how he was doing. from his first session which was around the 58 second mark, he got down to 38 seconds within 4 races using the tuition that the marshall was giving him, Very impressed. Being an ex-Marshall and kart Mechanic myself and having had a not very good experience here before, i must say it has impressed me. The marshalls are good and all seem to know what they are talking about (excluding the two that i know).

i went out the next week and i was impressed with the karts, handled well and accelerated well (even with my 18st mass).

all in all very, very good and recommended.
