Dragged the wife and my Mum's partner over here after doing a stag do grand prix event last year. It's a cracking circuit and I had some great races with some other arrive-and-drivers.

Visited with our children today. The track is great and the karts do the job. Be aware, there does not seem to be enough staff to adequately or efficiently move people through the system. The car park was not that busy on arrival leaving us thinking we would get on the track promptly as per "Arrive and Drive" Excluding time... More

I came here for my birthday treat. We arrived early so didnt have too much of a wait between sessions. Suits, gloves and balaclavas were provided. I found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. The karts were in good condition which is nice to see. Loved the track and had a fab time. Will definitely return soon. Thanks... More

We spent nearly £200 here for our kids to go karting, our 16 year old was turned away quite abruptly by the marshal as he didn't have ID to prove his age even though we filled out form and paid for adult band. We were able to get a refund and he then had to go in a junior kart.... More

HI Sarah, thank you for the review. Our adult karts reach high speeds, and are not suitable for younger drivers. The staff are doing the correct thing, and querying any driver who does not look old enough, and cannot produce ID. They are keeping both your child and the other drivers safe. We are pleased to hear you all enjoyed... More

They have clearly been spending some money at St Eval Kart Circuit recently. The new 390cc Thunderkarts are quick and a joy to drive around the 1300m circuit. There is plenty of parking, the staff are friendly and the wait is never too long (as long as you avoid peak times in the holiday season). Thoroughly recommended.

Arrived on a damp morning and most people struggled to keep the karts in a straight line, I span on the warm up lap! Good track plenty of room, very slick operation but can take a time re-queuing if you have purchased multiple tickets.

It was amazing fun . The track is great . It gives you a chance for creative driving. Staff fantastic . Karts all round good fun. Prices are little steep but for all the fun you get it's worth it. Also for spectators it great . The facilities are clean and well looked after. Food and drink on offer
