Only 10 cars are allowed on the circuit at any one time so if you are wanting to go with a large group then you need to take this into consideration, big groups are also advised to book in advance to make sure that they are ready for you.

Everything you need to go karting is here and the park is up to all safety standards so there is no need to worry.
