Will the new government “rule of six” affect my group booking?
The government has announced new measures to suppress the virus and keep the number of infections down including, from Monday 14th September, that you must not meet socially in groups of more than 6. Below are details of how this will be adhered to for events exceeding six guests.
Bookings can continue to be placed for larger groups. Any groups exceeding six people will be divided into smaller groups on arrival, not exceeding 6, which you will be required to remain in when on site. These smaller groups must socially distance, as required by the new government rules, whilst on site. Your activity will not be affected, with adult karting allowing up to 35 drivers to race at once.
For the safety of all, our updated cleaning procedures are
in place for all equipment, sanitiser stations and protective screens
installed, and distancing measures in place. Face coverings are required within
buildings and must be worn on arrival.

What is the minimum age and height to drive a kart?

What clothing should I wear?
For Karting & RX Buggies we provide a race suit, balaclava, helmet and gloves however we require you to wear flat, closed toe shoes. Gloves and balaclavas are mandatory for karting events and we recommend that, where possible, you bring your own. Drivers without their own racewear will be able to buy an accessory pack, including helmet liner and gloves, or use the freshly laundered racewear provided. For Paintball we will provide a mask and camouflage overall, but recommend you wear sensible shoes as you will be running on uneven and slippery terrain. We strongly recommend boots with ankle support.
Can I use my Go-Pro?
Following guidelines from the National Karting Association (NKA) & Motorsport UK, Go-Pros and similar are not permitted for use during Hire Kart activities. Owner Drivers may use them but only if the camera is securely mounted to the karts bodywork. Helmet mounts and chest mounts are not permitted.
What happens if it rains?
All activities go on! For Karting and RX Buggies, we provide rain suits to keep you as warm and dry as possible.
