    The boys, 14 and 10 have been karting before at other tracks and this has been the best so far. Good carts, great track and very well organised with helpful staff. Safety was taken seriously. Price wa...  more »

    Everything was ok , we had a very nice time karting , and it was well organised . The only critic would be that it would have been nice for someone to spray the clothing and helmets after each race be...  more »

  • Fantastic place to go with the family of all ages from 8 to 88. With a host of experienced instructors and karts to suit all ages to have lots of fun pretending you're a formula one driver racing around the track against other drivers. Whether you've been driving for 1 year or 30, nothing will prepare you for driving a kart as it's very different. Only an inch off the floor with rear wheel drive, makes you feel like your doing 60mph when your probably only going around 25 mph. The karts perform very differently from any car you've driven and the handling is like you're on rails.... But don't become complacent and hot the breaks too hard or you'll end up spinning 360. Slow in, fast out is the key to shaving off seconds on your laps and the staff there make it look easy, but you'll soon learn it's far from that if you want an impressive lap time. At the end you'll be buzzing from the adrenaline and tired from the energy you'll need to handle the karts. There's a nice food and drink facility there set in a themed area with TV screens that will announce the next racers so you won't miss your turn. With a decked view platform on the outside that over looks the track, you'll be able to watch other races or the members of your family or friends race and the track and chuckle when they spin out on a corner. Great fun for everyone and a bargain in you go on a Sunday!
  • Never been karting before and I was a bit worried as neither had my 2 children aged 10 and 11. However was put at ease immediately by the friendly staff and professional way the place was run. We had a fantastic experience, great fun but reassuringly safety appeared to be a priority here. Left with some very happy kids wanting more. Thanks!
  • Absolutely loved it. The cars are fast yet safe. The track is exciting with twists and turns and stretch of a straight run. Quite a few competitive individuals were racing with us.
  • After accidentally bumping twice I got kicked off the track. The staff were driving the go karts around without securing their helmets, the track is extremely small, and the staff are extremely unprofessional after taking me off the track and not giving me a refund for my next race, they were constantly laughing and taking the situation very unprofessionally. Not a happy customer and would not recommend this place to anyone, I raced for 3 years in the UK Karting Championship and the whole setup of Wight Karting is very poor.
  • Been a few times and has always been well managed. The leader boards and time print out brings out your competitive side!
