‘Corporate Karting‘ at the Clay Pigeon Raceway offers the perfect opportunity to experience the speed, excitement and drama of a race meeting, organised for you by our expert event management team. The day’s programme consists of practice laps followed by 1hr, 2hr 3hr team endurance races with computer lap counting and lap timing. We supply superb trophies for presentation to the ‘star’ drivers, and ‘bubbly’ as a souvenir of a great day out.
Any number of drivers between 10 and 60 can be catered for, competing individually or in 2-6 man teams and everyone has the opportunity to drive a Honda twin-engine powered kart. These 11hp machines can reach 60mph, and each event follows the procedures of a real race meeting. Teams are timed during practice to ascertain their grid position for the final race. There are pit stops with specialist crews, and all round viewing positions for spectators. Safety is our priority, and all drivers are provided with overalls, gloves and helmets.
Corporate Karting events can be held both on weekdays and at weekends, and we are happy to arrange catering – anything from a finger buffet to a hot carvery. Just let us know your requirements, and we will ensure everything runs smoothly for a successful day’s racing.
