Now the track has been extended which provides an underpass and flyover, this facility is fantastic fun. The owners are very professional but friendly and children (8 years old and over, minimum height 1.3m) are very welcome. My son tried the track on his 8th birthday and had such a good time, he wants to go every weekend.
The karts are well maintained and the track is great. Speeding around, a couple of inches above the tarmac, gives you a real rush. The tyres grip very well in the dry and are challenging (in a good way) in the wet.
A safety briefing is provided and all equipment is also provided including helmets, clean balaclavas (to wear under the helmet for personal hygiene reasons), neck braces for children and booster cushions if necessary and overalls.
There is a car park and an attractive timber control centre with toilets and refreshments. A timing monitor is mounted in the control centre and the owners always print out and give you your timing sheets after your driving session which will show how fast you were compared with other drivers on the day.
If you go with your children, the owners will always try to arrange it so there is just your party on the track without anyone else. If this is not possible, they will ask you if you are happy to go on the track with a few other people beforehand. Bumping/contact is frowned on - a few accidental bumps are ok but this is not a contact sport and anyone deliberately and repeatedly contacting anyone else will be black flagged (you have to go to the pits) and they have a 'kill' switch for real problem drivers where the kart will simply stop. Fortunately they don't have to use this very often as everyone is there to enjoy themselves.
It's always best to book in advance and if you only have a 10 or 15 minute session, you will want another. Afterwards your arms may ache but you will be buzzing.
There is no snobbery at this track - some tracks can be intimidating and you can feel like you shouldn't really be there - but this one is different.
If you have never tried karting and you like a legal high, try this track.
