Go Karting

Surprisingly few people have taken their kids Go Karting. It’s a fun, adrenaline boosting activity that increases hand-eye co-ordination and control at the same time as satiating thrill seekers desire for fun. Lakeside Karting (UK) and Kingston Park Raceway (Brisbane, Australia) both has numerous circuits, meaning that there’s an option for everyone, regardless of their ability and previous skill. For kids aged three to five years, there are specialist kids electric race tracks that are perfect for first-timers or beginners. The course is fun but still challenging, encouraging them to work on their skills and progress as much as possible. They will be safe and sound in an electric kids kart and will be supplied with the necessary safety equipment to prevent bumps. For eight to sixteen-year-olds, there are junior karting events and junior karts to match. For sixteen plus, there are two options: the novice circuit or the adult’s circuit. Novice karts have a single engine, whereas those opting for the adult’s circuit will be put in control of a ProKart with a twin engine. So get buckled up and prepare for a fun day out and some memories that will last forever.
