At South West Karting, we welcome Children from as young as 8 years old to have the chance of racing around our track in our 120cc Biz Cadet Karts.

Whether your child just wants to try out Karting for the first time, or keep practicing to work their way towards being the next F1 star, we have the facilities here to help.

For parents peace of mind, every child that is new to us here, will always go onto track initially at a restricted speed, until we are confident they are able to safely control their Kart.

YOUNGER CHILDREN

If you have a child that is under 8 years or falls under the height restriction of 1.2m but is at least 6 years old, we do have a couple of side-by-side Twin Seater Karts that anyone over 18 years of age can drive, to give them a taste of the action.

We also have a tandem twin seater Kart that our marshals drive and they can provide fast thrill rides for passengers that want a real speed experience!

CADET & JUNIOR LICENCE

At South West Karting, we run a Cadet and Junior Licence Scheme, which helps the young children through learning how to drive the Karts, how to take the correct Racing Lines around our track and a few basic technical know-hows about the Karts. We run this alongside our usual Karting Sessions, so there is no extra cost involved.

Once the Cadet / Junior Licence has been obtained (usually after 4-10 Karting Sessions) it enables the Child to drive the Karts at the unrestricted speed and to enter our monthly Cadet and Junior Race events held at the track.
