Follow in the footsteps of Lewis Hamilton with this fast and furious Grand Prix karting experience in Hertfordshire. Kick off with a safety briefing before getting kitted out in race wear and meeting your zippy 360 cc racing machine. Next, take part in a high-speed 10 minute qualifying session to get acquainted with Rye House track, referred to as ”The Silverstone of karting” by F1 driver David Coulthard, and determine grid position for the big race. Compete against other drivers in a full-throttle 20 minute race and feel the incredible speed and force of the kart while trying to negotiate the track and become overall victor! To finish, the session’s top three drivers earn a trophy and everyone takes away their lap printouts as a memento.


Runs at least once a week (could be a weekend or a weekday) throughout the year.
