The best day out we have ever done!
Our hour session was really well organised and included 20 minutes track time - which is about 15 to 25 laps depending on how fast you go. After registering we were kitted out with a body suit, balaclava, helmet and gloves, before a quick briefing. You'll need to wear trainers and, as it's outdoors, dress warmly if it's cold (they'll give you 'wet' suits if it's raining).
The track is amazing - fast with a variety of great corners to learn to master. There were safety marshals on the circuit and afterwards you get a print-out of your lap times.
We upgraded to have an extra 20 minutes track time, which was well worth it. After the first session we asked the staff for more tips on how to approach the corners and what racing lines to take… and managed to shave several seconds off our best lap time in the second session!
It’s great value for money and the staff were so professional, friendly and helpful. We took a camera with us and they offered to take photos for us while we were racing. Throughout they made us feel really welcome, joined in the banter and were incredibly enthusiastic, especially compared to other activities we’ve done where it feels like the staff are just going through the motions.
We were left buzzing from the adrenaline! This is without a doubt the best day trip/activity we’ve ever done, which is impressive as we’ve tried all sorts! I have been indoor karting before and I enjoyed this so much more - also there’s so much more room off the track and the crash barriers have a bit of give, which gives you the confidence to go faster!
Our brother lives in Canada and called the centre to buy us tickets as a Christmas present. He said the guy on the phone was so helpful and the tickets arrived with us the next morning in a gold envelope. They’re really accommodating and if it’s a gift, they can print tickets without the price.
The four of us had the track to ourselves (probably because it was the middle of January!), but there were 25+ students arriving as we were leaving. It would be ideal for birthdays, stag dos, corporate events or just groups of friends.
We will definitely be going again… and again!!
