Go karting is a non contact sport. However with go karts having I brake lights, there will always be bumps. The flag warning procedure is very poor! You don't know who they are waving flags at. Due to both these problems I got disqualified half way through. Staff were very rude about, couldn't give me an accurate reason to being disqualified and wouldn't except that bumps happen in this sport and can't be help. They really need to think about how they talk to paying customers instead of just saying "your disqualified, get out". Definitely won't be going again! Better places throughout the west mids

We went on a Monday night for £15, which is excellent value. Two 20 lap races, race suit, helmet and glove hire. Good track and really well organised. Will definitely be going again and would recommend it for a really fun night out.

cannon raceway was a amazingly fun place. Half of our group had never been karting be for but found it a exhilarating experience. We would all recommend cannon and we are all coming back.

Visited this venue with a group of friends of all ages. No problem parking right outside. We were made very welcome and after the usual self check in (computer) we got kitted out with racing suits etc. This was followed by a safety briefing (H&S and all that) and advice of what you can and cannot do. We then made our way out to the track. We had booked 75 laps (3 sessions of 25) All I can say is that it was utterly exhilarating but oh so tiring especially at my age (retired) The Karts were really good and pretty fast and ran a treat. OK there was some unintentional bumping but at no point did any of the staff get funny or disqualify anybody. At the end of the night everybody was utterly shattered but very happy and were talking about going again. What a wonderful night and if you fancy something different and don't mind a bit of exercise then give this a try. Would suggest fewer laps to start with unless you are young and fit. Now my aches and pains have gone I cannot wait to go again. Enjoy

Very disappointed. Although karting is a non-contact sport there is always going to be contact, even the slightest contact in the final race resulted in immediate disqualification. We will never be returning here as there are much better tracks. The staff are also ignorant!!

Jamie. If you are looking for a facility where you allowed to crash into each other and the staff take no notice. Please don't come to Cannon Raceway as you will be disappointed.
