Ideal practice session for 8-13 year olds. At 8yrs old you can drive on either of our International circuits in one of our spec loaded Cadet karts - just a smaller version of the real thing! Whether it's a dedicated party, private tuition session, or some arrive & drive practice, you're guaranteed to have a fantastic time. Once you reach 5' tall, usually about age 10/11, you can move up to a Senior kart - similar in every way but with a full size chassis and components. All children's karts are speed restricted and have the ability to be further slowed/stopped by remote control - safety is our absolute priority at all times.

Will run in 2 x 15 minute sessions

Includes personal accident insurance premium and balaclava fee.

comment Go Karting Reviews

  • Thank you for making my son 13th birthday treat such a great experience. Jayden his best friend Ben & big sister Paige had never done go karting before but after two sessions they are all hooked on it & had so much fun that on the way back to Croydon they only talked about the experience & how next time they will be overtaking more people. Lol. I would like to give a special mention to your receptionist she was welcoming & very pleasant a real asset to any front office. Then your safety guy who went through the safety points & gave the kids tips on driving the karts. The Jayden race team will definitely be back soon.

    Many thanks
    Mr M Morrison


  • My son absolutely loved the experience. All the staff were so friendly and helpful, we will definitely return for more fun.


  • Great would love to go again for our Christmas work do!


  • Staff were great and the experience was fabulous. This was a birthday present for my 9 year old nephew and I would definitely recommend it. I booked 30 mins for him and it was split across two sessions of 15 mins which was ideal because it was actually quite tiring for him to drive for 15 mins. Plus when he did the second session, he knew what to expect and drove with more confidence.
