We’ve just taken our lads and their friend to Brighton karting for the first time and were delighted with the facilities, staff and setup.It was a spur of the moment decision and the staff helped us out on the phone with the booking and sorting our specific needs.The boys had the most fantastic time and came off the karts suitably tired.The location is lovely and the cafe serves a very nice zero beer!We will definitely be back again.Thank you

What a little gem!Recently attended a Missed Apex Podcast event hosted at Brighton Karting, it was fantastic. Brilliant track, well run and marshalled. Surroundings are very pleasant with a decent little bar for a post-race beer. Would highly recommend.

Absolutely brilliant venue. Came for Missed Apex Podcast event and was very welcoming, accommodated podcast recording and the track itself was top notch. Then the restaurant! Delicious food, best of any kart track in the UK.

Top track love it, well maintained and good stewarding with virtual pace care which makes for great racing and limits the idiots you get on other circuits.Always have a good experience when coming here friendly staff and great facilities I can not speak highly enough and cheaper than alot of other tracks.

First class Karting venue. Real quality set up and super professional. The Karts are all very high quality and although I took my own kit the loan gear looked all good. The venue is great, there’s an awesome Cafe and everyone is super friendly. The circuit is challenging enough to keep you busy and the team really control everyone’s behaviours so there’s maximum skill minimum risk.All in all a fantastic place. Can’t fault it!

Awesome place - family run and it shows in the way it's kept and the engaging and interested staff. As outdoor circuits go must be one of the best.
