Good value decent size track and professional team

Many kart tracks are usually very small. This is a decent size and gives you a real thrill. . The team made sure the kids had as snugly fitting helmet and adjusted the safety belts properly. Karts also in good nick. Certainly something I would recommend. Plenty of safety marshals who are attentive.
