Grand Prix

Grand Prix – for groups of 12 or more drivers,minimum age of 14 years.

Grand Prix’s are the ultimate test as drivers battle wheel to wheel in a series of heats to prove who is the champion karter!!

Grand Prix’s are great for stag or hen groups, a big birthday and entertaining your corporate clients or staff.

Grand Prix format

Grand Prix’s will start with tuition from one of our race directors, followed by several practice laps so drivers can familiarise themselves with the karts.

Drivers are then split into 2 groups (more if over 22 drivers) to compete in a number of heats to score as many points as possible. The groups and grids will get mixed up during the event so you will race all drivers and start in different grid positions.

This is followed by finals, the lower point scorers in the “2nd chance” final, the top point scorers starting at the front of the main final.

Trophies are awarded to the top 3 drivers plus a bottle of bubbly for the fastest lap!!
