The Let's Go Out Team
Go Karting on Ice, City of London
Racing a go kart on ice might sounds crazy, but that’s exactly what you can do at Queens in West Linton. Perhaps you’ve already tried more traditional go karting and want to give it a go on a completely different surface, or just like the idea of whizzing around on ice!
It’s worth bearing in mind that it’s only available for over 18s and they only allow a maximum of 8 karts on the rink for safety reasons. After you’ve done a few laps on the ice, you can cool down even more with a drink at the rink side bar!
Traq Motor Racing, Croydon
A short drive outside London takes you to Traq Motor Racing with over 40 years of experience in go karting and motor sports.
They have loads of ‘arrive and drive’ options, or you can even bring along your own machine and have fun on the ¾ mile off-road circuit. They welcome people of all ages and abilities and are happy to host team building corporate events too.
