Grand Prix Events

Grand Prix

Grand Prix racing is one of the most exciting forms of Motorsport. Plenty of track time, ultra-competitive and thoroughly rewarding, our Grand Prix events are the most popular format we run. Imagine racing wheel to wheel with your friends or colleagues, sat only inches off the ground in 60mph racing karts, four abreast into the first corner - this is the closest thing you'll get to racing without a licence.

The practice session gives enough time to learn the circuit in preparation for the first heat race. Heading up to the first corner approaching 50mph, this is proper racing! If you don't do well the first time then there's always another race to make up some places. Then a final awaits (all drivers will drive in a Final). The top three receive trophies and the winner receives that all-important champagne.

Tuition

£70 for 1-hour session

Thinking of taking up kart racing? Fancy improving your karting skills? Our karting tuition may be just the thing for you. One of our instructors will teach you about racing techniques, including what lines to take on the circuit, when to brake etc.

Sessions run over a one hour period. In this time, you'll be given a full briefing (which goes into a lot more technical detail than our standard briefing), have a walk-round of the track, the karts and the pit lane area. On to the track - you start off following the instructor, then the instructor will follow you watching your progress and finding ways in which you can improve your technique. Once all this is done, you'll be sent out to complete some timed laps, with a full debriefing to conclude the session. Lap record sheets will be available. We can tailor your tuition to suit if required.

  • Sign-On
  • Suit and helmet fitting
  • Briefing, showing racing line, braking points, etc
  • Track walk/talk
