NEWARK GO KARTING TRACK Our circuit is an all-weather 1200meter track with a top quality, high grip tarmac surface. We have a range of Karts for most ages starting from 8 years old. The circuit is also floodlit for evening events so we can offer karting outside of our normal opening times to suit the driver in you. Twin engine 400c pro karts. Investments in state of the art Tag Heuer electronic timing technology gives our groups highly accurate lap times and speed readings. All equipment, clothing and tuition is provided as part of the price, and our policies on safety ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone involved. Please note that balaclavas are needed if you use our helmets, you can bring your own, or buy them from our circuit at £2.50 each.

What a fantastic venue, both inside and out, carts were quick, track was lively and damp, floodlighting was cool too ! Well worth a visit I would recommend to anyone.

Very professional, organised and friendly team at Elk Karting, fantastic with children and us adults who still think we are children. We can't wait to go back, which I think with my boy being the right age finally, they will see us a lot more now. Thank you guys, great day!

Came here for a friends bday. We had a decent group and opted for the 10mins practice (qualifying) session followed by the 20min race. Karts are brilliant (I think they may be Subaru but not sure), the track is perfect and an absolute dream to race. In fact the track is fast and long, brilliant for a good race. Overalls... More

I brought a group of 20 guests to ELK, they loved every second of it. These days there is a lot of corporate karting centres that burden the guests. The way ELK got on with it and let us go racing was great. They didnt cut short any of our sessions even when we were running late. We all enjoyed... More

We came here for my Husbands Birthday some time ago and I have been meaning to leave a review. Everyone was knitted out and explanations were given about how to operate the karts and the rules, then the fun began. The track has changed since we've been and we cannot wait to come back!
