Whilton Locks, Daventry, Northampton NN11 2NH
Track length: 960m | Opening times: 09:00 - 21:00
Possibly the most ideal corporate karting venue, Whilton Mill is ideally placed geographically to meet almost anyone's needs. The National track is the ‘old’ version in its unadulterated form and is still hugely popular; it represents a real challenge to dedicated and novice drivers alike.The well-maintained fleet of twin-engine pro-karts handle beautifully through the sweeping curves and Turn 1 is still one of the most breathtaking corners in the business. Be warned though its popularity means that many weekends are fully booked a long time in advance so if you really must have a Saturday or Sunday race then plan well ahead.
Events listed are for groups of up to 20 drivers and are 'sprint' type races for individuals; longer TEAM events are available on request.
Exit the M1 North at junction 16 and take the A45 signposted towards Daventry. When you get to Weedon traffic lights turn right, northbound, up the A5 towards Rugby. Go along this road for about 3 miles and at the top of a hill turn right where it is signposted Whilton and Lt Brington. Go under the railway bridge, over the canal and then over the M1 before taking the third entrance on your left into Whilton Mill. The circuit is now on your right.
