Their Hire Kart fleet ranges from Bambinos (available for kids of 6 years and over, provided they are at least 1 meter tall), through single-engine Cadet and Junior chassis to twin-engine ProKarts for the Adults (over 16 years). They welcome bookings from individuals or groups and, although we have a list of basic events on the Arrive & Drive page, we can also tailor an event to suit your requirements. We advise pre-booking for busier times, most notably weekends and school holidays, but can offer Arrive & Drive on many days throughout the year. We can offer one-to-one tuition, kart preparation and kart storage, while the Circuit boasts a well-stocked kart shop – Clarke Karts – selling new and second-hand karts plus spares, oils, racewear, tyres and so on. We also have a Cafeteria which sells hot and cold food (on race days & most weekends), plus hot and cold drinks, chocolate bars and crisps. (The café is open all year round for drinks & confectionery snacks.)
