“Superb place”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

We have visited many times, each timie the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. All gear is excellent and the safety talk is good, even for my 8 year old. The track is long enough to be interesting, and challenging- especially in the wet. All drivers get a good amount of time on the track. I fully recommend a visit, whatever the weather.

“A brilliant karting experience!”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

We have been going to this place for years while on holiday with our three teenage grandsons, it used to be called Jeepers Creepers. The boys always loved it because they got kitted out in full racing gear, including gloves and helmets with tinted visors. We could easily identify them by their brightly coloured suits and the numbers on their backs.

Everyone is given a safety briefing by the marshals before each race and told how to use the karts correctly. The marshals are very professional and we found them to be very patient with the younger racers, some of whom looked a bit timid. All the karts are fitted with an electronic device which slows them down if there is an incident.

The karts looked nearly new and the track was in an excellent condition enabling the drivers to have a great race. My youngest grandson nearly always managed to overtake his two older brothers and the look on his face when he finished first was a picture.

Coast to Coast Karting is excellent for drivers of all ages and abilities. We all had a great afternoon and the boys queued up after their race to go on again and didn’t have to wait too long. It is excellent value for money and everyone seemed to have enjoyed their experience on the track.

There is a café where you can buy drinks and snacks at reasonable prices.

We’ll be back next year!

“Highly recommend!”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

Having heard positive reviews of the circuit / venue from fellow karting enthusiasts, I had to come and try it out for myself. We received a warm welcome when we arrived and were on the track within mintues of arriving. The safety briefing was well delivered which was short, concise and engaging unlike other tracks I've been to. I was very impressed with the changing room as it was very clean, tidy and well kitted out. The overalls, gloves and head socks were in good condition and was pleasantly surprised to find the helmets had tinted visors - great addition as it's an outdoor circuit!
Also, the karts and the track surface were in excellent condition making the experience all the more enjoyable.

With regards to the marshalls, they were very approach able, attentive and had a good sense of humor. They always had a smile and were very professional. When a track incident accord, they dealt with it best they could with minimal distruption to other users on track. Other tracks I have been known to over use the speed reduction facility which leaves you very frustrated at the end of your session. With regards to the negative comment posted previously, I'm astonished they felt this way as I witnessed first hand a Marshall briefing a young child about the safety and use of the karts etc and was most impressed how he handled it.

This is a great track for all abilities and all ages. I would highly recommend it, you won't be disappointed! Having travelled for over an hour and a half to get there, I can honestly say it wasn't a wasted journey. The only disappointment is not living close enough! Many thanks to the management and staff for an enjoyable afternoon and hope to see you again soon. Phil T

“Great day out”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Have been here several times with the family and always had a great time. The equipment is of good quality and the safety talk is done well. The track is managed really well and it's a great event. The Owners are lovely and there's plenty to do on between races.

“Great place”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Went here with my son for his 11 birthday and 4 friends aged between 8 & 10 . They had a great time,we booked the birthday package which seemed better value for money. We were allowed to. bring our own food and eat inside or out,which many places don't allow. Prices for drinks ect were very good. Really helpful staff. All overalls and helmets supplied,which all looked quite new. Would definitely go back again.
