There’s nothing quite like the thrill of racing a 390cc Thunder Kart around a purpose built 1200m outdoor track. If you've got the nerve to put your foot down you will be reaching speeds of 60mph and with your backside just two inches off the ground it is going to feel even faster.
Our Open GPs can include up to 30 racers and kick off with a 15 minute practice followed by a 30 minute non-stop, head to head race. The winning drivers will feel like Formula 1 champions when they take to the podium to receive their winners' trophies.
Newcastle's outdoor kart track is located just 25 minutes from the city centre and is well worth the drive. It has been designed with high speed racing in mind and there are plenty of sweeping bends, hairpins, chicanes and long straights for you to demonstrate your driving skills
