December 2019 – Christmas & New Year Karting
🎄You know that period between Christmas and New Year when nobody knows what to do?? 🎅🏼
We have the answer!! We are open both days on the last weekend of 2019 for normal bookings, so drag the family away from the TV and board games, leave the left over Turkey at home (but bring the chocolates with you 😉) and come for some Karting!
📞 Booking is highly recommended, 01963 400591 📱

🥉 3rd – Toby (Kart 21)
🥈 2nd – Rhys (Kart 17)
🥇 1st – Henri (Kart 18)
Fastest lap of the race was also set by Henri, with a 31:24.

29th September 2019 – Our first Junior SuperSprint Race!
What a great first Junior SuperSprint event! 🏁

Donovan topped the time sheets in Qualifying, closely followed by Stefan and Henry.
The following 30 lap race was a lively one, with positions changing all the time, but at the end, the top 3 were:
🥉 3rd – George (Kart 7)
🥈 2nd – Louis (Kart 9)
🥇 1st – Donovan (Kart 1)
Thank you to all 10 Juniors for coming this morning, and we will keep you updated with another race date soon.

HELLO OLD FRIENDS 🥰

Plus, we have 2 more BRAND NEW Karts arriving in time for the Summer Holidays. Keep your eyes peeled as to what these will be….
15th May 2019 – Cadet Grand Prix THIS SUNDAY

10th April 2019 – New Cadet Karts
We’ve added 2 Biz 120cc Cadet Karts to our ever growing fleet of Karts, so we are now up to 8 Cadet Karts, which is great news for our Parties and Cadet & Junior Sunday mornings, meaning we can get more drivers out on track at once!
3rd April 2019 – Freddie Hunt visits
Today, we welcomed Freddie Hunt, son of legendary Formula 1 driver, James Hunt, to the track for a bit of pre-season training ahead of his Southern European GT4 campaign.
It was great to meet Freddie, and we look forward to welcoming him back soon.
31st January 2019 – The end of an era for Cheddar
South West Karting – Cheddar has been operating at Winchester Farm for around 20 years, but on the 31st January 2019, we closed our doors for the very last time.
Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, we have had to close the business.
This will come as a shock to a lot of you, as much as it did for us, but hopefully everyone will remember the great times they’ve spent here, from the Mini-Moto nights, Drone Racing, Karting, Pit bikes, Car meets, the list goes on.
For now, we will be focusing on our outdoor track, South West Karting – Haynes, but who knows what the future holds…
