KIDS & FAMILY EVENTS
Junior Karting from 8 years old
The majority of current Formula One stars began their careers in karting. Is your child the next Lewis Hamilton or Jenson Button? Juniors from the age of 8 can be catered for in our cadet karts. No prior karting experience is necessary as our expert marshals give all the training required. The minimum height for this event is 1.3m (4’3’’), minimum of 2 drivers required. All junior karting sessions must be booked in advance. All kids and family events have to take place on our flat track, as the minimum age for drivers to use the second level is 14.
20 laps £19pp (Mon-Fri) £24pp (Sat-Sun) – Please note that family/kids sessions do not provide exclusive use of our track unless your group totals 8 drivers as a minimum. Meaning you may well be on the circuit with other groups.
Max track time will be 20 minutes
Race Organisers Checklist
Due to the popularity of our centre, Avago Karting runs a very tight schedule so as to accommodate as many drivers as possible. It is therefore, very important that your drivers turn up on time. Any competitor turning up after the safety briefing has started will not be allowed to race. It may be prudent to provide your drivers with a copy of the map and directions available here on this site. All participants should arrive at least 30 minutes before your appointed start time. Minimum age: 8 years old – Minimum height: 4’3″ (1.3m) – All kids and family events have to take place on our flat track, as the minimum age for drivers to use the second level is 14
Race suits and helmets are provided for you in a variety of sizes. Gloves and Balaclavas can be purchased on the day, unless customers are able to provide their own suitable alternative. If you do have your own you are more than welcome to bring those along.
NOTE: Please note that drivers wishing to bring their own helmets should be aware that we can only accept type A & B full face helmets. Moto X helmets must also have goggles. Spectators are welcome, there is no charge. We recommend that you wear soft shoes. Trainers are ideal.
PLEASE ASK ABOUT FOOD OPTIONS ON ALL EVENTS. WE CAN PROVIDE FRESHLY BAKED ITALIAN STYLE PIZZAS OR PIE AND PEAS PLUS SNACKS AND DRINKS FROM OUR LICENSED BAR. IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER REQUIREMENTS NOT LISTED, PLEASE ASK AND WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO ACCOMMODATE YOU. We do have a licensed bar, but you must be aware that alcohol will only be served after you have completed your race(s). All events can have the use of our private party room for drinks and food after the race.
If for any reason your experience is less than satisfactory, please let us know on the day so that we can resolve any issues and ensure you have the experience you deserve.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL YOU BE ALLOWED TO RACE IF YOU HAVE CONSUMED ALCOHOL.
Final payment must be settled on the day of the race event. All deposits are non refundable and non transferable. If any additional drivers turn up (providing there is availability to do this- we strongly advise you give us a call to check this beforehand), then they can pay cash or card on arrival, along with the outstanding balance of the rest of the event.
