Some of the staff weren't friendly, whilst others were exceptionally helpful. Excellent circuit, just a shame that they didn't take any notice that the bully boys were trying (and succeeding) to bash into us girlies who were new to karting at every opportunity.

Having been to a few indoor kart tracks, my friend and I fancied an outdoor track to make the most of the good weather whilst it lasted. After ringing around a few venues it became clear the the folks at Grand Prix Karting were the friendliest and most helpful, so we booked in for a couple of 20 minute practice sessions.
We were on the 'International' track which is their largest configuration which was fast, flowing and technical, and being an outdoor track of significant size, allowed the two of us to battle away.
In-between the two sessions we had a break to re-hydrate and the friendly staff had time to give us some track tips and some banter, which created a relaxing friendly atmosphere. Its worth mentioning that there is plenty of spectator area track-side with seats and refreshments.

In conclusion, Fantastic challenging track, good condition karts, great facilities & staff, and we are already planning our next visit.

Went towards the end of April with my girlfriend as a birthday present. Very well organised and friendly staff who gave excellent tips to excel around the course. The karts are rapid and I would definitely go again.

Went with a group of 20 lads and we did the 60 minute grand prix. Very friendly staff. I thought It was a bit expensive, but it's really popular and everyone enjoyed themsleves. I could not get round the hair-pin without sliding though!!! The track is plenty big enough to be able to get past other drivers too, unlike most other places I've been karting, which is a big plus.
