Frequently asked questions

The minimum age for a cadet kart (that’s what we call a child go kart) is 8 years old, and the minimum age for an adult kart is 14 years old. There is no upper limit, but the racer needs to be healthy and able to get in and out of the kart. All drivers also need to be at least 130cm (4ft 3in) in height.

We don’t have specific limit for our karts, but those who are particularly tall, short or heavier may find driving uncomfortable or may not be able to fit in the karts. We recommend a maximum height of 6’4” and a maximum weight of 18 stone; however, we have plenty of drivers above these limits who race with us every day. If in doubt, pop down to one of our tracks and we can provide a kart test.

We will give you a jumpsuit and helmet to wear while racing, so wear something that will be comfortable under those. Long hair will need to be tied up, and all scarves, sashes and jewellery removed. Comfortable shoes are a must – trainers are perfect. You will not be allowed on the track if you are wearing heels, flip flops, sliders, or any open toed shoes.

You will need to wear a balaclava and suitable gloves with grip, which we can supply for a small cost. You are welcome to bring your own race wear and balaclava, which are subject to approval by our marshals.

Our venues have Sodi go karts which have massive 270cc LPG powered Honda engines and are some of the fastest indoor karts in the country. You’ll be able to reach speeds of up to 45mph (this limit is restricted for children)!

Very much so – but only if drivers follow the rules! Before heading out onto the track, every driver must take part in a safety briefing. If these rules are followed, you will have a perfectly safe and massively fun time.

No, not at all. Our karts are really simple to operate, and our team will help those who are new to karting to get used to them. Once you’ve gone round the track a couple of times, you’ll soon get used to the controls and the circuit, and your lap times will improve.

It depends on the type of session, the number of people in a group and the date, but prices start from £25. Click booking button to find out a cost for the type of session you would like to book.

Of course! Whether you are just racing around a track on your own or competing against friends and family, it’s great fun, and can be the perfect way to celebrate a birthday, bond with colleagues, or enjoy a stag/hen party

It’s a way to enjoy high speed and exhilarating fun by racing around a track (which are both dual level at our Bristol and Maidenhead venues) in four wheeled go karts that reach speeds up to 45mph. We kit you out in jumpsuits and helmets and will give you a safety briefing before you step onto the track.

We have a minimum age restriction of 8 years old, and we don’t recommend karting for anyone who is pregnant or has a condition such as epilepsy or heart problems. We want as many people as possible to enjoy karting, but to meet our duty of care to both our staff and customers, it may be necessary for a dynamic risk assessment to be performed prior to some drivers being allowed to race. If you have any questions, get in touch


At our Maidenhead venue we have dual seat karts that allow drivers to have as much or as little control as possible, which means those with additional needs can still have fun karting by going around the track with one of our team.

We ask every drive to sign our karting waiver

No, a driver’s licence isn’t required. If you’re new to karting, our team are happy to give you some tips before you head out onto the track.

We recommend a maximum of 18 stone, as weight can slow the karts down, but we have heavier drivers who use our karts and have a thoroughly good time.

Yes, you can, but you’ll need to wear the visor up on the helmet. As we’re indoor karting venues, we don’t recommend sunglasses or reactive lenses as these can hamper visibility.

We run cadet specific sessions where children aged between 8 and 13 can race without an adult. We just ask that an adult accompanies them at the track.

Yes. We run family sessions for children and accompanying adults to race together. Adults cannot race on these sessions unless they have a child with them.

It’s best to complete all karting waivers in advance to save time on the day. A link to the waiver will be sent to you at the time of the booking.

Yes, this is fine as long as the helmet is full face and has a clear visor. You’re also welcome to wear your own race wear as long as it meets standards for karting – race wear and helmets must meet ISO standards. Motorcycle leathers are not permitted. Motocross helmets are not permitted, management decisions are final.

You may use a helmet cam with a secure mount if using your own helmet (chest mounts are not allowed), but we don’t allow racers’ cameras to be attached to our helmets. However, we do offer an in-house action camera rental service.

See our Maidenhead and Bristol  pages for up-to-date opening times. On days that we aren’t open, our venues can be used for private hire, whether that’s to go round the track, a private event, or to use the meeting rooms we have available. Contact us to get more info.

We offer a 15% discount to all Blue Light card holders. To use this, simply input the word ‘BLUELIGHT’ for Bristol or ‘BLUELIGHT15’ for Maidenhead into the promotional code box online or quote over the phone. A valid ID will need to be shown at site when checking in.

We also offer a 15% Student discount, using the code ‘STUDENT’ for Bristol and ‘STUDENT15’ for Maidenhead, again a valid ID will need to be shown at check in.

Discount codes do not apply to any offer days and or products.

Love my sessions here at Absolutely! Challenging track which rewards skillfull drivers, so I definitely need to keep practicing🙄😏 Obviously the karts differ a little if you want to split hairs...which even if i had the need to visit a Turkish barber I wouldn't🤣... does it distract from the fun - absolutely not! The staff work tirelessly to keep things as even, enjoyable and safe for all on and off the track, making for a really friendly experience. I would also like to praise the Absolutely Together charity for their brilliant work with those less privileged and able to get access to karting. They put on brilliant sessions with their specially adapted twin seater kart and I would urge you to find out more if you think you may know individuals or groups who may benefit form this...I've seen the smiles on some amazing people first hand with these sessions and i can tell youn it certainly warms the heart 😍

The staff are brilliant. My 10 year old had no issues understanding what he had to do. He's pushing me to go back already. Free car park outside. 25 minutes on the track for £28.00. You will need to buy (£7) or rent (£5) a balaclava and gloves. We bought.

I took 5 15 year old girls here on Friday and they had a blast! It was an amazing experience which I would highly recommend. The staff are absolutely fantastic, friendly and professional- they were above and beyond our expectations. Thank you all for making this such a fun experience. We will definitely be coming back!
