Race Academy FAQs

The price is from £320 depending on whether you sign up for our Bristol or Maidenhead Race Academy programme.

Yes – cadets will be provided with a safety jumpsuit and helmet rental.

No, definitely not. They just need to have an interest in and enthusiasm for go karting. Our go karting lessons are run by our dedicated instructors and the programme starts with the basics and ends with advanced techniques. By the end, our cadets will have shaved off seconds from their fastest lap time.

Absolutely, safety is paramount. Before your child even steps foot into a kart, they will have a lesson about safety, and after that safety instructions are continuously reiterated before the start of each lesson.

90% of the fastest young drivers who race at Absolutely Karting learned their skills through our Race Academy, so yes it really does help kids learn how to drive like a professional at a young age.

Cadets will learn from our expert and highly experienced instructors. Lessons will include dynamics of the kart, race craft, safety and advanced techniques to improve your skills and speed. Each lesson will begin with a presentation on the days lesson and each lesson will have cadets on the circuit for 35-45 minutes. At the end of the course, cadets will compete in a graduation race and will be presented with a licence to race the 1000m circuit and exclusive graduate events. You can find out more by downloading our Race Academy Welcome Pack.

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!
