Ages: 9-12

Venue type: Indoor and Outdoor

Wight Karting has a 500m track that is suitable to drive in all weather with a number of interesting curves to negotiate. It's welcoming and suitable for absolute beginners, with friendly expert drivers on hand to provide full tuition and safety equipment.
There are three different types of kart available to drive, so ensure that you check the age restrictions online so the kids know what they're looking forward to driving!
The karts travel at a decent speed (22mph to 48mph) so kids are expected to take this seriously. You can be assured that a full safety briefing is given at the start, plus equipment including helmet, suit and gloves are provided. Please ensure those wanting to drive are wearing shoes or trainer and not flip flops.
You can choose Arrive and Drive sessions, which are 20 minutes in duration and give kids time to drive a few laps, or book a family or party deal to enjoy together.altough booking isn't required for Arrive and Drive, it is a good idea to ring first to check availability on the day.
If your kids enjoy it, keep an eye out for the Junior Driving Academy and Cadet Driver School, which are due to commence in September! A chance to really hone those new skills.
