Go Karting in Plymouth
The first time you drive a racing kart you are guaranteed exhilaration like no other! How ever many cars you have driven nothing will beat the adrenalin rush of buzzing along at 60mph or more just five centimetres off the ground! The karts have spine-tingling acceleration and you will need to keep your wits about you at all times. Many drivers who start karting with the intention of moving onto bigger and better things often end up staying because they enjoy it so much!
With so many circuits around Devon and the UK this is where most people will get their first taste of Karting. The speed of karts on most indoor tracks is probably limited to 30-40mph, which still feels pretty fast when just a few inches from the ground. Indoor karts are generally designed for running on smooth indoor tracks and have hard rubber tyres. Combined with a slippery surface this guarantees lots of slipping sideways making for an exciting if not very high speed experience.
This is where the excitement really starts with outdoor karts doing speeds upwards of 50mph and an outdoor karting session will be a lot more like real racing! All major karting competitions can be found on outdoor tracks. This is where the real challenges are. Outdoor circuits are divided into short and long circuits.
