TeamSport karting is all over the UK and boasts a large selection of tracks that will allow you the ability to test out your driving skills. Even if you’re a beginner or someone who’s done racing previously, the environment TeamSport Karting provides will suit everyone.

The circuits TeamSport Karting provide throughout the UK come in all shapes and sizes. Warrington boasts the longest track they have at 1000 meters long. The Warrington course is even classed as an international karting circuit with 35 corners that are guaranteed to put any driver to the test.

How to prepare for your Team Sport Go Karting experience

TeamSport have gone out of their way to make the experience as quick and easy as possible. Just download the app register yourself and provide your license information and other small details, and then you’re ready to go.

When attending your chosen circuit, you will be given the appropriate personal protective equipment and made to buy balaclava and gloves which cost £3 each. There’s a good chance that after your first experience you will be hooked, so if you intend on going regularly or karting is something you want to take up in the future don’t lose the first set you buy.

Each time you attend you will need to do a safety briefing. The experienced guide will explain the track layout, hand signals, the relevant flags, and the traffic light system. This will let you know how to identify when to stop, when to go and where not to overtake.

Then you’re ready to race

What is the Team Sport Go Karting Experience Like?

Once you’re in your go-kart the marshals will test your ability to break and set you on your way. If you’ve never been on the track before it’s always a good idea to take a few laps to get used to the circuit. This is good practice when going to different Team Sport Karting circuits UK as each one will be different and will host a different number of challenges. 

For me, the layout of the Sheffield TeamSport Karting circuit is one of my favourites. You can drive up to two different levels, starting on the ground and then up to the second level. The thrill of speeding down the track from the top-level back to the ground really gets your adrenaline pumping. The different track surfaces (wood and tarmac) also give you different experiences as you fly around the track.

  1. I’ve done go-carting here in San Diego and also in Las Vegas. I’m not very good at it but it’s a great family activity. The men get super competitive!

  2. This is such a fun and adventurous thing to do! Believe it or not, a go kart track recently opened in my town and I’ve yet to try it. I’ve been hesitant, but can see that with the safety training and the teams, I really must experience it — if nothing else, as a spectator. Such a cool idea and great thing to do on a UK vacation, too!

    Go Karting is such a rush, I know what you mean when you describe the feeling. You can pretend your’re in a formula racing league! Cardiff is our closest one, looks like we need to book in with some friends soon.

  4. I have never done Go Karting, and I think it would be super interesting. Teamsport seems to be one of the experts in it. Great to read about this adrenaline activity.

  5. This is a very inspiring article. A long time ago, with my friends, I tried Go Karting. However, it is not fun and proper for me because I’m not too fond of fast driving and noise. But I think it is a great idea to spend time with friends, and have a lot of fun if you like competition and the thrill. Your recommendation of Team Sport Go Karting UK is excellent; I think the prices are affordable.

  6. I have always wanted to try karting, but never tried it before. I think that the older I grow, the less safe I see it. But it’s very good to know that you are given a full training before you get in the car, and that the staff tells you how to drive and when to not overtake. That is very useful information. I might give it a go at some point, it does look like a lot of fun.

  7. Wow! This is fun! I love Go Karting. It’s nice that they do a safety briefing every single time. A Grand Prix sounds really exciting. We’d love to visit in the future.

    1. Must be great for people who love speed. But I probably won’t enjoy it. I don’t even drive!

  8. I’m not sure why, but kart racing has always been a dream of mine; it’s even on my checklist of things to do. This sport appears to be somewhat challenging for me, therefore I’d like to give it a shot. I’m beginning to think about going karting as soon as I’m physically and financially able because I believe it’s a great deal of fun!
