Open timed race sessions at Brentwood Karting in Essex allow everybody the opportunity to experience the unique thrill of go karting. If you have karted before, you will probably remember the first time you drove. The sheer thrill of speed when you are driving at up to 50mph just 2 inches from the ground cannot be forgotten in a hurry.
If you have never karted before you may be a bit nervous or apprehensive? Don't be...karting is perfectly safe and a whole lot of fun. All our kart sessions are designed with safety and excitement in mind & in equal measure.
For experienced karters we have "Adult Only Race Sessions". Age 14 and over.
These sessions are run on 50mph, 270cc Sodi Race Karts. Our Sodikarts are class leading and tweaked for optimum performance around our track. They are are not your "off the shelf" type you find at an indoor kart circuit. For starters they have bigger engines which means more grunt getting out of the corners which makes for much closer racing. They have longer gearing which gives higher top speeds on our long straights and sweeping bends and with the addition of electronic fine tuning (only found on Sodikarts) our karts are uniform in speed, which you know makes for more thrilling battles on the circuit.
For experienced families we have "Family Race Sessions". Age 8 and over.
These Family Only Race Sessions are strictly for families of experienced racers with children under the age of 14. We do not mix adult groups with children unless they are family members and we only ever mix family groups with other family groups.
These kart sessions are run at full throttle on our 200/270cc Race Karts. They are fast and participants should expect overtaking in a race style environment. Only the best drivers may reach the top of the rev range which is a maximum applied to protect the engines.
For inexperienced drivers and first time karters we have "Family Fun Sessions". Age 8 and over.
These Family Fun Sessions are run on karts that are electronically restricted to the speeds you would experience at an indoor kart circuit. These sessions are a perfect introduction to karting for people who have not driven a kart before. Speeds are restricted to allow drivers the time to learn how to drive both the go-kart and the circuit. It is a safe family environment to learn go-kart driving. If you and your family members have never driven karts before than we recommend this session first.
Excitement is still guaranteed whether you're racing in our Family Fun Sessions which are set to the same speed as indoor kart circuits or if you fancy something more punchy like our unique class leading 270cc, 50mph Race kart.
All open timed practice sessions are fully marshalled and are 15 minutes of laptime. They include your racewear (suit & gloves), full NKA Safety briefing including a short video and electronic laptime printouts to see how quick you are.
These 15 minute time trial sessions are perfect for individuals or groups wanting to battle it out on our 825m International Circuit.
