Reviewed 6 September 2013

My group booked a large event that was run ahead of time and included drinks for free, the karts were really balanced and no one had any complaints afterwards, the marshals were alert and strait over if we needed help overall i would recommend for beginners and experienced drivers best circuit in lincolnshire, the owner Richard was friendly and gave a great deal.

To be fair the karts are decent & the track is great. I have been a number of times & found the owner a down to earth switched on guy that knows his stuff. Unfortunately he did not appear to be there on my last visit. Instead we had a load of kids who didn't have a clue what they were doing & a middle aged chap who was arrogant, lazy & could't give a damn. The briefing only gives half the information required creating a very unsafe race track. The briefing repeats over & over again what the different colours of the flags mean, mentions what protective clothing needs to be warn & how to get in & out of a kart. When on the track beginners and children (who have a right to be there as they have paid just like me) seem to wander down the middle of the track at a slow speed (which is fair if they aren't used to it & have not been briefed properly). Unfortunately this created a very dangerous situation for other track users. If another karter went to overtake round the outside the beginner/child would out brake themselves and carry straight on, if the other karter went down the inside the beginner/child would turn in in on them. This could all be sorted by mentioning in the briefing information about racing lines, race craft & race etiquette. I do not mind sharing with other users, it actually makes it more fun, but I didn't get a single clean lap due to the other users, but at the end of the day, like them, I have paid a lot of money as well so I don't expect to go round at a quarter of the pace.

After visiting a couple of times I really enjoyed this venue.

The karts are very good and we'll looked after by the staff.

The facilities are extremely good and clean, with very good food and drink available.

Karting wise the marshalling is fair. The circuit is BRILLIANT with many varieties available as well as a floodlit circuit.

Brilliant venue and fantastic staff!

I have been here several times with friends and young children and taken part in the karting, bowling and laser tag. Each experience was very good value for money and we all had a great time. The staff were very helpful and encouraging and gave us all the help we needed. We especially loved the karting and found it well run with good marshalls. We have also stayed on to eat and found the food very nice and good value for money.All in all it's very good value for money and we will definitely be returning.

we have visited Ancaster a number of time sfor the karting in all weathers it has always been great fun and very well organised probably the best track we have been to. The karts where in great condition and all seemed to be even in performance so some really interesting racing. We found the staff very friendly and would highly recommend to karters of all levels
