Further Information


1.2 KILOMETRE CIRCUIT Karting is what we’ve built our excellent reputation on and our 1200 metre outdoor circuit is fundamentally the best track in the North East if not the UK and Europe! 

850 METRE FAMILY CIRCUIT We run an 850m variation of the circuit for family karting events, so children from 8 years old can experience the thrills of karting, with an exciting main straight and tight, technical corners. 

350 METRE TRAINING Our exclusive kids training circuit is used for children's parties and induction sessions for those under 12 years old. This offers a fun driving experience and is perfect for an introduction to karting.


We have four models of kart, all manufactured by French company Sodikart, the World Leader in leisure kart manufacture and supply.

ADULT SODI GT4 KARTS Our fleet of Sodi GT4 karts run on LPG and feature a Honda GX390 cc engine. We can race up to 35 of these karts on our circuit at once and are ideal for stag groups, hen parties, birthday parties and private hire bookings.

ADULT RX250 KARTS We also have the faster RX250, which has a 250cc, 4 stroke petrol injection engine and is described as ‘The world’s first sporting leisure kart’. There are qualifying requirements to be able to hire this kart for timed practice sessions.

JUNIOR SODI LR4 KARTS The third kart in our range is the Sodi LR4 which makes up our junior fleet. These karts are designed for children aged 8 and over. They can be driven on our junior training circuit or on the 850 metre family circuit. All children aged between 8 and 11 years old are required to complete a junior induction before being able to kart on the main circuit.

SODI 2DRIVE In addition there is a Sodi 2Drive which is a twin seater kart and is ideal for children from 5 years and individuals with additional needs.
