Kids Karting

Kids Karting

Qleisure offers go karting experiences for children aged 8 years+.

All sessions start with a NKA safety DVD briefing followed by further safety instructions from a NKA marshal. The talk includes how to drive the kart in the current weather conditions, how to take the bends, breaking points and drivers line. The kids are then kitted up with safety equipment; gloves, helmet, rib guard, neck brace and overalls.

Arrive and Drive is very popular with groups of friends and family because we are allowed to mix adults with Children on the track at the same time. Please note that these sessions are not races.

Children’s Birthday parties are also available. The party is broken into 2 x 15 minute timed sessions, there is a pace kart for the first session setting a safe speed for the kids to follow. After the practice if all children are successful at controlling the kart then there is a time trial to finish the party.

The Children’s outdoor go karting party takes place on our full 800m track with 120cc Biz Cadet Karts. We also offer exclusive track use.

Ages 14 - 17

We offer exactly the same as above but in our faster 200cc Biz Karts. Engines are running, hearts are pumping, the lights turn green and their off! Straight into the famous 'Hells Drop' the session has started. Generally for this age group there is no need for a pace Kart.

Lap times and positions are all displayed on the computer screens and these are also emailed to each driver after the party. We have trophy and medal packages available for a presentation at the end of the session, please ask us when making your booking.

The children will be outside and during the winter and wet weather the track becomes cold and very wet. We recommend the children wear appropriate footwear and clothing i.e. trainers, long sleeves and trousers. Gloves, overalls, and crash helmet are supplied.

Is there a trophy?
