What should I wear?
Wear flat soled shoes (e.g. trainers) and loose, comfortable clothes. Race suits and crash helmets are provided, but you may bring your own if you have them.
Do I have to book?
Yes. Demand for karting is very high, and some dates can be booked several months in advance, so the sooner you book the better your chance of getting the date & time you want.
