Go Karting

Go Karting is a type of motorsport where small powered vehicles race against each other, usually around a custom-built track.

Who is it suitable for?
Depending on the equipment available this activity can be suitable for all ages. Some providers have small low speed quad bikes and go karts which can be used by Beavers and Cubs whilst others will have more powerful versions which are suitable for older sections.

Additional Information
Don’t forget for all motorsports to wear a helmet at all times.
