I have driven at dozens of tracks over many years. Sutton Circuit near Lutterworth takes some beating, and Daytona at MK is a bit special but this is a up there with the best. A well run track, good karts in good condition, a nice track with some technical bends and a good straight to get up some speed. Race suits a bit tired, helmets ok, and sensibly priced. Definitely worth a go if you are on the island.

Just visited the Wight Karting yesterday my three adult over 18 children had the best fun ever didn't want to leave!
The staff were great as it was our first time here although my 3 had karted elsewhere. Explained everything in great detail we had arrived for a walk in session.
Great equipment suits,karts and helmets etc all in fantastic condition.
They paid for 3 sessions of 10 minutes £43 each well worth it and were delighted to get print outs and see their names up on the leader boards inside. They didn't want to leave and cant wait for our next visit to the island to have another go.
Very professional set up...

This is a good course and the usual price for this sort of thing - £30 for two 10minute sessions.

The staff were lovely and very helpful. Myself and the mother in law sat on the warm sun catching (afternoon) decking outside of the cafe area. It was great for feeding my weening baby. They didn’t blink when I asked for boiled water so I could also make a bottle. The tea was great value and refillable. For £1 you could choose 6 sweets from the four , yum yum.

Lovely photo area with empty champagne bottles you can use for piccies. Service was great and swift.

We loved the Go Karting!
A member of staff gave us a walk around the track before completing some practice laps, qualifying rounds and race finals. The technical equipment was fantastic and increased the level of competition. We all thought it was great and would recommend to other visitors. A great outdoor track.
It was a little challenging if you had an inexperienced driver in the group because they caused more accidents for others and impacted lap times, especially on sharp bends.
