Get behind the wheel of a powerful outdoor kart on this fantastic outdoor circuit, the starting ground for many Formula 1 drivers, including Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton. Commence with a safety briefing before climbing into a kart. Once comfortably seated and engines are revving, unleash that competitive streak and test those skills against other drivers with a 20 minute session on the 600 metre long National Circuit, driving a RT8 390cc petrol kart which reaches speeds of up to 70 mph. An exhilarating experience for those with F1 in their blood!


At least one weekday date every week during school holiday breaks throughout the year (extra dates are available during the school summer holidays).
