FAQ

All drivers must be a minimum of 16 years old. Karting is not recommended for persons with heart problems, epilepsy or other conditions which may be affected by exertion (including pregnancy). Particularly tall, short or heavier drivers may have problems fitting into the karts. We recommend a maximum height of 6’5”/195cm and a maximum weight of 19 stone/120kg.

From 1 - 1.5 hours or more depending on your group size and event timings. Please note these are rough estimations.

The Formula 1 Grand Prix is a private event which means you will not be sharing the track with other groups. If you would like to explore other event options that include private use of our circuit please check out the Elite Grand Prix and Team Enduro events.

With our on site newly opened Pizzeria Café we can provide your group with an excellent range of food and beverages. For health and safety reasons, only food and drink purchased on the premises may be consumed on the premises.

To avoid any possible delays and ensure everyone is ready to race on time, we ask all drivers to arrive 30 minutes prior to their booking time. Any drivers turning up after the safety briefing has started may not be allowed to race.

Any event here at Apex Kart must be booked in advance online or over the phone. All bookings must be made with a minimum deposit of £10 per driver (non-refundable). We cannot hold or book slots without a deposit.
