Venue Details

Want to live out the ultimate racing fantasy? Then start your engines and speed to your heart's content at Karting Nation's Hoddesdon circuit, one of the biggest and best outdoor tracks in the south. Stretching to an epic 1 kilometre, our venue is well known as a training ground for many F1 superstars. Are you ready to take on a racing challenge so exhilarating, it makes an F1 circuit seem like a playground? With vehicles that can speed up to 65mph and a track full of plenty of heart racing bends and corners, this is the most fun you can have behind the wheel- and definitely not a challenge for the faint of heart.

Not only does our fantastic Hoddesdon circuit feature everything you need for your karting experience, we've also got a range of excellent facilities to accommodate groups of all sizes. Our venue features a state of the art timing system, and the winner even gets to take home a trophy! As well as this, we've also got spectator areas, conference facilities, parking, changing rooms, in addition to an on-site cafe which sells hot and cold food, drinks, and snacks.

The Track

Many famous F1 drivers have trained on our Hoddesdon track and many of them have never fully recovered from the intense thrill ride they got when they raced across this epic kilometre! Do you think you're ready to take on the challenge too? All karts on site achieve speeds of up to 65mph, with our state of the art 320cc Biz GP2 Evo engines having better acceleration and sharper handling than many karts you'll see on other sites. Can you successfully tackle sharp bends and hairpins on our circuit, including Stadium Bend, Reg’s Elbow and the Pylon Complex? if you can, you could be a future F1 superstar...

Our site has spectator areas and disabled facilities, in addition to a cafeteria and a licenced bar.
