JDR Karting is approximately 300m long with an average lap time of 24 seconds featuring three very exciting High-Speed Banking corners. Its unique tarmac surface provides an ultra-smooth ride for the drivers and lends itself to some very challenging racing. There is excellent viewing provided by two purpose built multi-level viewing platforms, which contain a series of vending machines providing sweets, crisps, confectionery, hot & cold drinks and also games machines to keep all ages entertained. There is computerised lap timing that allows drivers to view their lap times, overall positions and when they are racing next and the track complies with all NKA requirements.

Please note that crash helmet liners are compulsory and may be purchased from reception at £2.00 each
