The Track

Want proof of how epic our track is? At a massive 900 metres, we are easily the longest outdoor circuit in Essex. Every inch of our track is filled with an exhilarating challenge, from the sweeping straights to ten intense corners, two pulse racing hairpins and the heart stopping "Devil's Drop". When you take to our circuit in one of our Twin Engine Pro Karts, you could be accelerating at speeds of up to 70mph in seconds. This makes us one of the fastest tracks in the UK, as well as the perfect place for competitive racing- after all, it couldn't be easier to overtake rival racers at that speed!

Our location comes with disabled facilities, spectator areas, parking and changing rooms. Light refreshments are available on site.

      • "Thank you for making my son 13th birthday treat such a great experience. Jayden his best friend Ben & big sister Paige had never done go karting before but after two sessions they are all hooked on it & had so much fun that on the way back to Croydon they only talked about the experience & how next time they will be overtaking more people. Lol. I would like to give a special mention to your receptionist she was welcoming & very pleasant a real asset to any front office. Then your safety guy who went through the safety points & gave the kids tips on driving the karts. The Jayden race team will definitely be back soon.

        Many thanks
        Mr M Morrison "

      • "Staff were great and the experience was fabulous. This was a birthday present for my 9 year old nephew and I would definitely recommend it. I booked 30 mins for him and it was split across two sessions of 15 mins which was ideal because it was actually quite tiring for him to drive for 15 mins. Plus when he did the second session, he knew what to expect and drove with more confidence. "
