Fast Machines

For those who love the growl of engines, followed by a mud splattering

If you like to go fast we have Mad Trax and Go Karting. Both race on mud tracks and are great fun.

Fast Machine options: 

Mad Trax

Mad Trax are an off-road buggy: fast and so unruly that they race by time trial so one can’t be hit by another. They are so quick that if it's too wet it just doesn’t work and another activity will be substituted.

Go Karting

Go Karting with us is a bit different! Yes, it's an indoor track racing against up to three other karts, but between the kart and concrete is a layer of muck and water making for a challenging course. A great leveller for the Kart Nuts to be brought down a peg. This is karting country style!
