This Indoor Go Karting experience is available at centres
throughout the UK, meaning you don't have to go far to go karting!
Go karting is one of the greatest and most extreme of our indoor
adventures - it is fast and furious, and a whole lot of fun!
Even the less competitive among you may find yourselves pushing the pedal to the metal during your race, as that feeling of overtaking an opponent is just too good to pass up... This karting session will test your speed and control as you power your way around the track for fifty laps. The rules are simple, the person who completes the fifty laps in the shortest time wins! As if that's not exciting enough, while you're appraising your performance and assessing lap times, you can enjoy delicious stone baked pizza, baguettes, hot and cold drinks, and even alcohol to celebrate at some locations!
This Indoor 50 Lap Go Karting Experience provides a great day out full of competitiveness, fun, speed and more, the perfect gift for any adventure-seeker!The event starts with a practice session to enable all drivers to become familiar with the circuit and the karts.

Three of us enjoyed the experience very much. Would definitely do it again.
Out of all the experiences I have taken part in during my time here, only the bungee jump has involved several members of the teanm, and even then it wasn’t everyone. So I was very excited when we decided to go Go-Karting with Team Sport as a whole office!
Arriving at the centre, we were kitted out in racing suits and shown upstairs to the briefing room. After a short video teaching us the rules of the road, it was karting time! I was in kart number 13, which could be a good thing or a bad thing, but luckily I’m not superstitious (much). Everyone else from the office had done this experience before, so I wasn’t expecting to rank very high on the leader board (good excuse, huh?).
The instructors said the first lap was supposed to be a practice, but apparently that doesn’t mean anything to the men of the office, as they were off tearing up the track and overtaking me at every opportunity. The go-karts themselves go very fast, a lot faster than I was expecting, and it’s fairly easy to skid round corners and bump into the sides (for me, anyway).
The track starts with a couple of hair pin bends, then up a ramp, round a corner and down a slope, round a few more hair pins before going through a tunnel, then a long straight before you’re back to the beginning. It was so much fun navigating the tight corners and building up enough speed to fly up the ramp, even if I wasn’t very good! At one point I did completely spin out and the race had to be stopped so I could be put back on track (literally), but altogether everyone did very well.
To make up the numbers for the first race, a Team Sport member joined us – and won! For the second race, Dee sat out because she didn’t feel well, and the Team Sport member didn’t participate, so there were only six of us racing. I did slightly better in this one, as you can see from the Leader Boards:
Once the second race was over, we collected our racing stats and headed to McDonald’s for a nutritional post-race dinner. Altogether it was a very enjoyable evening, definitely worth the aching arms the next day! Huge thanks to Team Sport for being so accommodating and making the races run smoothly. Can’t wait to try it again!
The Indoor 50 Lap Go Kart Racing - Nationwide can fit up to 36 people per session where you will compete against each other.
The minimum age is 14 and under 16's must be accompanied by an adult.
