We have held several charity events and the events team are great and have increased our return with their buying laps etc.. Now had significant improvement with new owners and it is such good fun except when your daughter gets a faster time than you. Must start the diet before next year

Where do i begin. This place could be great ..but it wasn't. Booked our 7 year old in for the 15min circuit. It starts at 10, was told to be there at 9, no idea why we sat there drinking coffee till 10....ah maybe that was the reason. Now my 7 year old is only just 7 but the carts... More

The team were very helpful when booking. I would advise to try and get the 10 guests required to hire the whole track, it makes it so much more fun when you know everybody. I choose the micro sprint 3 x 8 mins races and a final 10 min race. The shorter races are more fun as you get a... More

Took my boyfriend here for his birthday as it seemed something that would be memorable and a little different to the norm. We were both fairly new to carting with only doing it once or twice before but that didn't interfere. We both had a great time and even though it was pouring hard with rain it was still brilliant...

My nephew had his 10th birthday party here! all the kids had a great time, the cold didn't bother them at all, the adults, not so much! The staff was great and were very attentive to the kids. They had a fabulous time and I would recommend it as a great, fun, family activity!

Great place for the racer in you to let off steam. If you just wanting a go, you can hire karts from the circuit, if you serious you can bring your own kart to monthly events and race against other fans. This track is one of the circuits in the national championship for most/if not all of the main classes.

Been visiting Buckmore for probably 5 / 6 years. Used Buckmore's karts and others. Getting rid of the Geo block and replacing it with painted tarmac and the new crash impact barriers was a good idea. The track looks ace now. It's gotta be the best in the UK. One downfall is the cafe staff both inside and over the... More

I've been to Buckmore Park a few times over the years (both with friends and as part of a corporate event) and it's better than ever. Over the last year the entire circuit has been updated with new barriers and karts which make the whole experience awesome. Every time you finish an event here you get the same buzz and... More
