Karting @ Wight Karting

Wight Karting

Ready, steady, race!
Race your family and friends, Formula 1 style, through 500m of outdoor floodlit track at Wight Karting. Perfect for adrenalin junkies and group activities alike, Wight Karting is a fun and high-speed activity to enjoy. 

What to Expect

Once you’ve arrived and signed in, pay for as many 10 minute racing sessions as you wish, pick a race suit from the locker room, and await your call to the track. When your face appears on the big screen, go to the briefing room for the lowdown on how to drive your car and the rules of the track. Don your helmet and hairnet, head to your assigned car, and you’re off! 
The Marshall gives you a trial lap first and the timing starts as soon as you pass under the ‘loop’. In the fastest cars you might get about 18 laps in your ten minutes and travel about 4 ½ miles. Friends and relatives can watch from the tables on the café balcony.

You’re given your lap times, with your fastest in black. Compare your speediest lap to the fastest of the day, week and month. Join the Drivers Club and you could win a free race. Or you could book an F1 group event - the winning team gets a trophy.
