Karting North East is home to one of the biggest and best go-karting circuits in the UK! A recognised British Championship circuit, the 1.2 km track features exhilarating fast straights and the tightest of technical corners.

Since its opening in 1996 it has come on leaps and bounds in terms of facilities and circuit size, with floodlights and a second smaller track for junior karting. Recent additions include the UK’s largest Speedball arena – making paintballing even more exciting in a purpose-built facility which is safe and clean.

Racing has become more and more popular since Lewis Hamilton arrived on the Formula 1 scene. When you race on the largest and most challenging circuit in the country it’s an experience you will never forget!

Karting North East own 390cc karts that are some of the fastest available in the UK, each capable of getting round the circuit in 66 seconds, reaching an average speed of 46 miles an hour. A state of the art timing system will smooth out any squabbles that may arise in the pub after, as individual lap times, positions, gaps between drivers and time consistency are all measured accurately.

The perfect activity for parties and corporate events and even for fanatics who own their own racing kart!
