Adult track looks great but unfortunately the kids karts were extremely slow. Children, even the youngest, were very bored and even upset as they came expecting to have fun. These karts are probably only suited for an 8 year old who's never been karting before....More

I took my team here for a team event following our sales meeting. The guys at Grand Prix Karting were exceptionally helpful and laid on a really great event. Most of the team rave about what a good event this was. Thoroughly recommend.

Went with a mate for a 40th birthday bash and it was fantastic. We paid £50 for 2x20 minutes sessions which may sound a bit pricey but at £40 for 1 session it represented better value. If you aren't already a member, you have to...More

This circuit is apparently well known within motor sport circles but does not appear to be well marketed to the visiting business community. At not much more than a mile from all the top business hotels I think they are missing a trick here. Nevertheless,...More
