Venue Details

The Activity People's Hoddesdon site is one of Britain's largest karting circuits, as well as one of the biggest outdoor karting locations in the south full stop. Most importantly, this site has plenty of ties to racing history as the training ground for some of the world's leading F1 superstars. Do you want to push the pedal to the metal on one of Britain's most famous, most exciting and most notoriously tricky circuits? Well, you can't call yourself a real adrenaline junkie if you don't. Strap yourself in and prepare for the ride of your life- you definitely won't regret it.

Whether you are organising a small informal event for friends, a stag do or a full blown corporate event, we guarantee an exceptional event. The racetrack cafe can be open subject to prior booking and is capable of serving anything from the humble bacon & sausage baguette to a buffet or BBQ. The hospitality suite/diner will be available for your use, as will the sun terrace, during fair weather. Plus, you and your guest can enjoy some post race R&R, not to mention some drinks, at our fully licensed bar. Our Junior Track is also home to the fantastic "Minisportworld" Hospitality Centre where you will find our superb remote controlled karts and control pods. With larger groups not all drivers will be out on the track at the same time, so why not book exclusive use of the radio controlled karts to keep everyone entertained? Smaller groups can also take advantage, booking these radio controlled karts before or after your session starts on the real thing! Up to 4 people can take part at any one time. Booking is available in units of 30 minutes and each 30 minute unit costs only £22.

The Track

You don't have to be a champion racer to take on this circuit- but if you manage to tackle each obstacle across the length of this exhilarating kilometre track, then you'll definitely feel like an F1 superstar in the making. You'll be taking on this track in one of our awesome 320cc Biz GP2 Evo engines, which can accelerate from 0-65mph in seconds, making them the fastest karts in the country. From then on, you'll be taking on hair raising hairpins and sharp bends including Stadium Bend, Reg’s Elbow and the Pylon Complex.

Our site has spectator areas and disabled facilities. Light refreshments are available.
