Booked in as a team of two at the last min for the grand-prix enduro session at the weekend. Well organised with attentive marshals and thorough safety brief. I had never been karting before so perhaps this highly competitive, testosterone filled session was not for me. I did two stints let my partner do the rest of the time because I kept getting bashed about by other drivers. Excellent place if you like karting, but not for me.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review Annie. I am sorry to hear you didn't enjoy yourself as much as you hoped.

The track has quiet times outside of the weekend, so if you ever fancy coming again, or want to do any of our other activities, please get in touch.

Our boss booked Wessex Raceway for the Christmas do as we normally go to the pub. The 10 of us got there just before 7 and signed in. The staff were great talked us through everything and set the karts up best for each of us. We had a 5 min qualifying 15 min race and then a reverse order 10 min race just so everyone had a chance at winning. When we finished we had a trophy presentation and burger and chips. What a great evening and we cant wait to go back Thanks for a Great Nite Wessex Raceway.

My twin boys had a party at virtual warfare on Sunday with 10 of their friends ranging from 5yrs old to 8yrs old. Everybody had a fantastic time, with most saying it's the best party they've ever been too and all us parents watching desperate to join in.

I'm glad that despite it being so busy on Sunday, you all had a great time. Next time, if the parents ask I'm sure they can join in!

Many thanks

14 of us went down on a Saturday for a bit of fun ( and something different than the pub ), 13 of us raced ( 1 pregnant lady ) and we had a great time. We had 10 min practice, 10 min qualifying and 10 min race. It was great fun, staff were good and nice, definitely go back again.
