“Not Even Worth The Phone Call”

Whilton Mill Karting
Ranked #22 of 68 things to do in Northampton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 December 2013

I just got off the phone with the woman at Whilton. At first she said she had availability all day and as I was asking my other half what time he wanted to go, she became quite impatient saying that she wanted us to decide as she had a lot of work to do.

That really made me want to go to there.

And spend my money.

A group of us went for a friends leaving do. At first it was average, as you pull in you see the national track which gets the heart racing, your then shown what looks like an entrance road.. This was our track! The brief was..well brief: the red flag means stop, well you don't have to stop, just slow down. This came from the guy laying out the safety rules.we went out in 2 groups as there was only 7 karts. The organiser (the guy who was leaving the country) had a broken kart, for a guy who can dominate us at GP he was trailing and being lapped. They pulled him in and gave him a fresh kart, same thing happened. So end of their race one if the stewards says that it is his driving style...next race, different driver, same kart, same problem!! The stewards, who were meant to be at 2 Marshall points were hidden from the office on the far side of the tree in the centre texting! Rarely looking at the track.

I love karting and enjoyed being on the track and if it was done right to a good standard could be fantastic!! But if you're going any time soon.. Save your money, not worth wasting our time!

Held a(charity) corporate vent day here for around 70 people. Weather was fantastic which always helps. the whole day was very well organised from the point of view of the activities - go karting, quad bikes, off-road buggies and clay pigeon shooting. Of specila mention has to be the quad bike instructors and the clay pigeon guys - very helpful, courteous, lots of patience (which they needed with us) and all made us feel very welcome. the subsequent feedback from our guests was excellent - all thoroughly enjoyed the day.

One issue which would help to make the experience much better for guests would be to improve the toilet and shower facilities. I appreciate that they would get all sorts of guests here but the facilities were a bit basic - having said that, they did not impact on what was a fantastic day.

I must mention Whilton Mill's generosity also, in donating a prize for our charity raffle - thanks guys and well done.

Good points: Track. Good challenging circuits
Concerning points: Karts. Mine was ok but there were several karts that broke with wheels following off)
Bad points: Staff were lazy, time wasting, and some that were rude following some of the karts breaking down and listening to customer feedback.

Experience was a bit flat. No lap time sheets were available to take home after the event. highlight of the day was going to the pub down the road.
