I like to go to places where you are more than just another number. This is such a place. It represents all that is great about the Isle of Wight. Personal, professional and we all finished our experience with a great buzz. The island has needed go karting for ages. Good on you for making it happen. Chris

Having visited the Isle of Wight a couple of times before, it was a nice surprise discovering there now is a karting center on the island. Some years ago I worked as a manager in a bowling- and gokart alley in Norway, so I was pretty curious and excited on how they did the security and prepping the customers, not to mention the gokarts and track itself. From the first moment I got a really good impression. The staff was friendly and polite, speaking clearly, making it easy to understand for a norwegian tourist. The facilities was well organized with a restaurant, bathrooms, and lockerrooms. You could also sit outside and watch the whole lane if you don't want to have a go. The 500 m track was really good, and the karts some of the best I've driven ever. They were tight and secure, with a quick respons pushing the pedals. I did two sessions with a break between, and had the best of times. An excellent way to spend a couple of hours as a break from all the coastal walks on the island. Recommended!! :)

Very well organized and a big hit with our friends and family. We paid GBP 25 for each person for two 10 min sessions. The whole experience took about 1 hour 45 mins from start to finish.

Took our boys, aged 11 & 8 here and they had a great time. It was well organised, safe and offered the boys a real auto sport experience. Good value, they had two 10 minute sessions each for £40.

There's a café to grab a cuppa whilst you watch, a good morning out and next time we'll book the full Thursday morning package for them.
