Driver Testimonials

I took my team here for a fun day out, and that's exactly what we had! The booking procedure was very straight forward and my emails were replied to quickly and professionally. We booked the go kart racing and clay pigeon shooting, both were fantastic fun & great value for money. The equipment/machines etc were all great quality. Big thanks to Ross, Hannah & Howard who were all brilliant and made us feel very welcome on the day.

I brought my teenagers to race on a wet November morning. We had a lot of fun and decided to return in January.

Marshals are well drilled and the atmosphere is always one of competitive fun. Overall, I highly recommend this place. It is far better than any indoor karting with better staff, a better atmosphere and a much faster track.


We had a small group of friends racing the go-karts on a great track, really technical and challenging, we had the whole track to ourselves, it was damp so it was extra fun trying to keep the karts on tarmac, also had a nice beer afterwards. Brilliant!

What a track it is. It is fast, flowing, and so much more interesting and fun to drive than any kart track I have ever been to. The nature of the track allows you to run at a far higher speed than at indoor track.

This made for a great structure only enhanced further with the best karting track we have experienced. We've done several over the years but this challenging circuit has the right balance of fast corners, tight bends and superb straights which are long enough for decent overtaking.

Went here as part of a birthday session. The track was fantastic. Just the right amount of corners and straights. At 800 meters it is well worth the money. The staff know what they are doing and let you race.


Amazing, great location, challenging track. Very helpful staff. Will be going back. Take my advice and do it in the wet if you get chance, a great challenge

James Harris

Couldn't recommend Brighton Karting any more if i tried... I've been 3 times now. once we got out on the track it was like real life Mario Kart (without the bananas and shells...) I didn't win but that didn't matter as it was just fun to push yourself with each passing lap... I got a sheet telling me my fastest laps which i thought was great!

A very memorable day. Well organised, great fun and very professional

I've had loads of people stop me to say how great the programme was and how much they got out of it!


Amazing location, excellent and challenging circuit. Very helpful and friendly staff. They have a fantastic Kids karting club where they can start at age 8! They have a junior league and a senior league - brilliant!! Highly recommended!
