Having done quite a bit of karting I think I've got a reasonable idea what I'm talking about, and in my opinion the steering on the karts here is way too heavy. Probably due to too much castor angle b... read more »
In the middle of school holidays, a perfect place to take the family and kids. Massive race course fast and safe go karts, good value for money, better than most of their competitors. Refreshment issu... read more »
From arrival, the whole set up was geared to being informative, safe and fun. The party of 14 was split into groups and kitted out withe suits and safety gear. The karts are well looked after and fun ... read more »
Overall, I was disappointed. The website gave a good impression and implied great value for money. Very oldskool. Would I return... unlikely in the near future, but won't rule out the possibility. The place is more suited to a bit of non-competitive group fun as it was a hard track to be competitive with some many variables. The health and safety was very laxed and some attention is required. The karts are in need of maintenance and everything had seen better days. The track was okay, but the corners weren't the most enjoyable (in reverse), not the biggest of tracks and the track surface was poor. In one area there is a bump with a poor joining of different tarmacs, one slippy. The barriers were also in need of alignment. My kart had a sticky throttle and would not decelerate and the brakes had no feel at all. My helmet I found on track was broken and would remain closed misting up, the visor very scratched and glazed making it a night mare to see. The overalls had also seen better days. Although I'm sure these could of been changed, but this was not feasible in a open race. It seems they do not provide lap time print out's. Disappointing to leave a bad review as I had great expectations, but this really fell short compared to other tracks.
I liked midland karting because it was professionally run and had all the equipment you need. Karts were fast and the track was quite technical.
Well organised. Fun day.
Karts were very slow and old, not very well maintained. Service was also pretty poor, as no lap times were recorded, even after specifically asking for our second run. The safety of the place is also fairly poor, the outline of the track is not stable and the wall protections (stack of tyres) were very badly maintained and not fixed in position. Overall cannot recommend the place, the low price is not justified by the low level.
Fun outdoor karting place for a reasonable price. They don't have any sort of tracking and it seemed a bit lax on the initial briefing but it was good fun and the circuits well laid out.
