Anyone under 12 years of age that is over 140cm must race in an 'Ages Under 12' race. The speed of this race is likely to be limited to cater to the age group. This is for safety reasons. If anyone over the age of 12 participates in this race type, they should not expect to achieve higher than 50% kart speed as this is what is suitable for the age category. Drivers must be at least 12 years old and 140cm to participate in the 'Ages 12-15' race. The speed of this race will be faster than the 'Ages Under 12' races, but will still slower than an adult race as it is meant for children. We advise that any adults looking for a fast race book themselves into Ages 16+ sessions.

It's important to note that the time slots for our go karting correspond with the start time of the race briefing, meaning the race isn't actually on track until the 15 minute briefing slot is complete. With that in mind, if you are for example booked into the 11am session for go karting, the race won't be complete until 11:30 am.
