Daytona Sandown Park


900 metres of outdoor tarmac. Long, wide and grippy! 900m is about three times as long as your average indoor kart circuit.

The karts are very similar to machines you may have driven indoors, except…..they have two engines!! The second donk means that individual driver weight advantages/disadvantages are much less of a problem. Otherwise, they’re just the same; accelerator, brake, no clutch pedal or gearbox - easy!

Top speed? How does 55mph at the end of the main straight grab you?!  


This is a short, punchy session; you and the kart for an hour, of which 50 minutes is driving-time. No hanging around. Daytona used to advertise them as ‘Iron Man’ events. Oo-er!

Before heading onto the track, you’ll pick a number from a hat. This gives you your race 1grid position. For race 2 we reverse the grid. So, if you’re on pole for race 1, you’ll start from the back in race 2.

And so to the karts. You’ll have 10 mins practice to warm-up the kart and get used to the circuit, then you’ll be held on the Back Straight (see map above) and sent to the grid in grid order.

Race 1 is 20 mins long, after which you’ll drive into the pits. Out of the kart, but don’t go anywhere because the marshals are simply rearranging the numbers on the karts. Once they’ve done that, you’re straight back into your new kart and out onto the grid for race 2, also 20 mins. You get a LOT of karting for your money, which brings me to…


For the second year, we’ve managed to hold this at £65 per driver. It really is a LOT of karting for your money.

Anybody over 16 (the circuit have special karts for youngsters; give them a call to arrange a session for the kids).

Many (if not most) people have some sort of airline connection, and a lot of them are pilots. We have people from BA, bmi, easyJet, Virgin, Jet2 and XL Airways. Drivers also come from ATC at both LHR and LGW.

At the same time, however, people bring mates and other-halves along as well. It’s open to all, but please bear in mind…..…….we are currently only allowed 25 karts on the track! Get one while they’re hot!

There’s generally a wide range of abilities. With a grid of 15 or more karts, there will very likely be several people in your speed range.

The idea of each event is for everybody to get together, enjoy the karting and then have a drink and some lunch in the pub around the corner afterwards. It’s a social.


If you do more than one or two events with us per year, the championship might be of interest. Basically, your best three points scores will be added together to give you a points total.

We'll try to find something suitable to give to the highest-scoring driver as a trophy at the end of the year!



You get wet. But a happy wet. Slick tires, no grip, 24 karts aquaplaining into the first corner... backwards!



The circuit provides a natty range of race suits that fit over your clothes, and a large selection of crash helmets. Gloves and helmet-liners complete the look. If you have your own helmet, or even race suit, feel free to bring them.

If rain looks possible, bring a change of clothes - the water-proofs provided don't live up to their name!


Spectators are welcome, and there’s a large decked area outside the clubhouse for watching. There used to be big earth banks around the circuit which spoiled the view, but they’ve removed those over the winter.

For an even better view of the action, walk the short distance to the far end of the circuit and watch from either of the first two corners. There’s generally something worth watching there as the karts leave the grid on lap 1!

Limiting the duration of the event to 1 hour (and the fact that races generally break down into a number of small, frantic scraps) should mean that spectators won’t need to worry about getting bored.
