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.

Massive thanks to the guys at Herefordshire Raceway for looking after our stag party last Friday. The weather was terrible but the karting and facilities were first class!!! The staff were great (although due to the weather we kept them all busy putting us back on the track!!). One of the best facilities I have visited and will definitely return next time I am in Hereford!

Absolutely fab service and staff, all friendly and very helpful. The track itself is a great size with extra space on the track to overtake. The go karts were surprisingly fast and easy to handle. Overall it was a great evening, thank you!

Our daughter decided she would like to have a karting party for her ninth birthday. The staff were very friendly, extremely patient (and they needed to be with children who had never seen a kart before) and polite. Safety was paramount at all times, with a good explanation before-hand and Lee was very thorough in making sure all children had correctly fitting neck supports and helmets.
Very well organised and great fun for all the kids, a great alternative type of party if you are looking for something different for a more adventurous child. Highly reccommended.
