Lakeside Karting was established in 2002 after the success of our sister circuit, Brentwood Karting. The circuit is 900m long and 6m wide, and with a range of cambers and changes in undulation it offers an exciting mix of flat-out straights, flowing corners, 2 hairpin bends, and the thrilling 'Devil's Drop'. It is a real test for even the most experienced drivers, and a quick lap time here takes considerable practice.
For the serious racers we run a fleet of 30 of the very latest class leading 390cc Sodikarts, designed and built specifically for our circuit & serviced and maintained to a meticulous standard. Uniformity is always a priority to us and they are tested and tweaked to within 4/10th of a second. Not only are they quick, but the handling and set up is sharp and precise. With full wraparound bumpers and inbuilt speed restriction units, these really are the pinnacle of excitement and safety.
With 5mph electric Funkarts (3-7 yr olds), 200cc Cadets(8-14 yr olds), up to 50 mph 200cc Adult Racers and 70mph 390cc Racers (14 upwards) , we have something to offer the whole family to enjoy.
Lakeside Karting offers the general public the chance to book some practice laps , join in an organised race event, or book your own exclusive party. Whatever the number or reason for your get-together, we can tailor an event to suit your requirements and budget. (please see Opening Times for our current hrs)
