THE first premier outdoor karting circuit in Warwickshire has opened to the public.
The track, which is based at the 100-acre Adventure Sports outdoor activity centre in Warwick, boasts a fleet of 14 fast and powerful twin-engine 400cc Biz Le Mans Karts, fitted with state-of-the-art electronic De Haardt safety systems and Tag Heuer timing.
There is also a fleet of 200cc Biz Junior Karts, with full safety cages and harnesses suitable for ages 10 and upwards, including adults, so ideal for family parties!
Members of The National Karting Association, the site offers three different karting packages:
Have-a-Go – Race against the clock – ideal for individuals and small groups (1 to 12 people);
Grand Prix – perfect for groups of friends or corporate events (8 to 36 people);
Endurance Racing – the ultimate team-building corporate event (12 to 72 people).
Adventure Sports was established at Wedgnock Rifle Range in 1990 by Steve Richardson from Leek Wootton who was already running Paintball and Clay Shooting on neighbouring land that he was farming. Since then the number of activities has grown to more than 50 including Mixed Activity events, Karting, Junior Karting, Clay Shooting (including 20 and 50 Shot Experiences for novices, Sportrap, Skeet and DTL for regular shooters), Quad Bike Trekking, Mud & Mayhem, Hovercraft, 4×4 Taster Sessions and Safaris, Rally Karts, Powerturn Karts, Reverse Steer Jeeps, Archery, Segways, Digger Driving, Treasure Hunts, Junior and Compact Paintball, Pistol and Rifle Target Gallery, as well as a vast selection of Team Building Activities.
It is also the only site in Warwickshire to offer the new recent addition of axe throwing as an activity!
The new karting track realises the latest ambition for Steve, who says it is already proving to be one of the more popular activities for corporate training days.
He said: “One of our clients’ major requirements over the last 30 years has been speed related – and being able to now run these twin-engined karts certainly offers that.
“We’re the only place in Warwickshire to offer twin-engine karts on an outdoor track. We operate all year round and in all weathers!”
