Red Lodge karting Ltd is the East of England’s largest premiere outdoor circuit

Budding World Champions have loved to visit us over the past 19 years and in our 20th year in the business; things have never been better or quicker for Red Lodge Karting.

Our 1200 metre floodlit circuit and karts ranging from GX160 up to our corporate GX270 capable of 55mph, we promise you a day to remember!

All corporate and organised race events benefit from exclusive use of the venue, using our GX270 karts unless specified other karts that are available to book.

We can facilitate Corporate Presentation / Product Launching or Company Leisure days out. Let us arrange your day for you with our event co-coordinators arranging welcome refreshments from a hot or cold lunch of your choice, finishing with an afternoons Karting Event to ensure you finish the day on a high with a trophy presentation.

Catering for Hen/Stag, Team Building, Works Outing, Birthday’s Parties or whatever the occasion, it is our speciality, encourage your family & friends to spectator along to share your Event with you, making sure they bring a camera for those podium photos! We will be happy to give advice on the best Karting Event for you, so you’ll leave wanting to come back again!

Our Events offer Grand Prix & Team Endurance Racing which can take place on either of our 700mtr or full floodlit 1200mtr circuit.

Individual drivers just wanting to have a go can enjoy practice sessions. There is plenty of advice & guidance to get you out on the 700mtr circuit. We have karts for all ages and driving abilities from 7yrs old to adults wishing to experience a karting session.

Computerized lap timing equipment is used to gain your up to the 1000th of a second lap-time of your completed karting session.

Refreshments are available on-site from vending machines. Hot food can be pre-arranged from our Pit Stop Cafe, depending on the notice given and the group size attending. You are welcome to bring along a picnic as we have plenty of grassed areas.

The safety record is second to none at Red Lodge Karting

Drivers are provided with a race suit, crash helmet, gloves and shower proof suit (in adverse weather). All karts are checked daily by our mechanics and safety track marshals positioned around the track when racing is in progress. A full safety briefing is always given after the drivers have signed in on the indemnity form at the reception.

  • Decent track, decent staff. Inconsistent karts. Kart 'W' is the best part of 2 seconds quicker than any other kart on the track, if even a half-decent driver finds themselves lucky enough to randomly pick this kart, then they've won - this makes it a bit of a waste of money if you're looking to try and win an open race etc. Any staff that might be racing off-duty will talk amongst themselves and find kart 'W' before the race begins, for an easy win. I've even witnessed people swapping karts with a mate in a qualifying session just to get kart 'W' for themselves, making it a bit boring for everyone else. However, if you're just looking for a bit of fun, go for it.
  • Been a few times and always enjoyable, with friendly staff. Facilities seem to have got better since the last time I went also so kudos for that.
  • Inconsistent karts, inconsistent rules, rude boss, really disorganised. We've been going for a few years and race regularly. Sadly, the staff have "favourites" who can get away with anything. Those outside the inner-circle are broadly treated like dirt. You can win race after race but have the trophies (and championship points) arbitrarily deducted with no reasons given. They make up penalties which aren't in their rules and make up rules after alleged violations. The karts vary in quality and wear. The same good driver can see a 2+ second/lap difference between two supposedly identical karts. Kind of takes the sport out of it. Sometimes timing equipment doesn't work and the boss invents timings, with his preferred people "winning". Won by half a kart length? Nope, you lost by 0.04 seconds. He can tell that just by looking... The staff are broadly friendly and helpful but utterly chaotic. The do the same things day in and day out but frankly every race they end up running about an hour late. They act like each routine is the first time they've thought about it. I mean, it's not difficult. The real problem though is the boss. He's oh so keen to exercise his authority. I suspect he has little else going on in his life. He is demeaning and nasty. If you just want arrive and drive between you and a mate, it's fine. But for racing or corporate events or any kind of practice, steer clear.
  • Our two boys had a great time Karting! Excellent track. The staff were absolutely superb!
  • Amazing place! Very organized crew and everyone is quite polite and professional. The track is quite fun while staying challenging. I definitely do recommend this place no matter your experience with karting.
