Scientists Have Discovered The Ultimate Christmas Present!

We’re going to take a punt here and say you probably can’t remember what you got for Christmas last year?

It’s OK, we can’t either, and unless you got something really awesome (like a Karting Nation voucher) the chances are you’d already forgotten by Boxing Day!

The same applies for all those gifts you spent hours searching for the shops for, and that’s why we think a karting experience makes the perfect present. After all, who’s going to forget the time they got to unleash their inner F1 star!

Obviously we’re a little bit biased on the subject, but believe it or not there’s some proper scientific research to back up our belief that taking to the track is better than traditional Christmas presents. Research from San Francisco State University found that people who spent money on experiences were happier and believed their money had been better spent. So just giving a karting experience is guaranteed to make you feel awesome.

The brain boxes at San Francisco State University aren’t alone in their findings either. Dr. Thomas Gilovich of Cornell University has dedicated almost two decades of research to the question of money and happiness, and he believes that experiences make more memorable gifts because they have a greater impact on your life. The docs probably onto something too, because anybody who’s taken to the track will know it’s almost impossible to forget the rush of racing.

Even if you’ve never taken to the track though, we’re pretty sure we know what you’d rather get your hands on. It doesn’t take a doctor to work out that battling it out for a place on the podium is more exciting than anything you’ll find on the high street. So forget buying more clutter this Christmas, scientists say there’s only once gift that should be under your tree and it’s a Karting Nation voucher! 😉
