Karting Practice Sessions for Adults aged 16+

three hire go karts in action

Practice sessions are the ideal way to have some fun or to improve your laptimes and technique. Up to 18 karts may be on track at the same time, giving you the chance to see how you are in traffic! All your lap times are recorded and printed out for you after your session. The standard practice session is 30 minutes but check the Adult practice dates button on the left as we also offer shorter or longer sessions occasionally.


Drivers under 18

Please note: Drivers under 18 years of age.

The minimum age to drive in adult events is 16 years*, but all drivers aged under 18 years must be signed in by their parent or guardian who should be present at the desk when the minor signs in. Without a parent or guardian counter signature the minor will not be permitted to drive.

*The minimum age is reduced to 14years for drivers who carry a current MSA Kart Race licence which MUST be presented and checked. This does not remove the need for a parent/guardian countersignature.

See 'Practice dates' for dates, times, prices and special offers.
