Open from 6th May to 28th October

Each Saturday during May till October, we open our additional approx 300m Leisure Circuit for Junior Arrive N Drive. This circuit offers an ideal opportunity for you to bring children (9 – 13 years old) to Bayford Meadows for that spur of the moment weekend karting experience, as NO BOOKING is required. The Leisure circuit is open between 10am – 4pm on these Saturdays, with last entry at 3pm. Simply come and see us and have a go.

The approx 300m circuit is a similar length to the section of the main circuit used for Junior Hire and the same Junior Karts are used. Upon arrival, head straight to Race Control to register and pay. From there you will be issued with appropriate race wear, receive a short safety briefing and some basic tuition, before going along to the Leisure Circuit. We look forward to meeting our junior drivers.

All sessions are supervised and include a safety briefing, basic tuition and all necessary safety wear. Please allow 30 minutes in addition to the driving time.

Cost:

  • £20 per person for 15 minutes driving time
  • £30 per person for 30 minutes driving time
  • Summer Saturdays 10am - 4pm
  • These sessions are on an Arrive N Drive basis only, bookings cannot be made, simply come along before 3pm
  • Suitable for 1-4 junior drivers per session
