Jump in and get behind the wheel of our powerful Sodi RT8 karts on the iconic Buckmore Park circuit, home to F1 legends Lewis Hamilton & Jenson Button.
After a safety briefing, you will head out onto circuit for a 30-minute karting session. Put your skills to the test as you race against the clock to set the fastest lap time, with up to 18 drivers on the full International circuit.
Sessions are unstructured and designed for drivers new to the venue to acquaint themselves with our karts and learn the circuit. Those with more experience may use these sessions to improve their racing lines and technique.
