A top family action attraction: all-weather, outdoor, racing driver experience for 8-88 year olds.
The Isle of Wight’s #No1 Action Attraction on TRIP ADVISOR.
Wight Karting has a purpose built 500m track and couldn’t be easier or more convenient to find – its right behind Tesco Extra in Ryde; just follow the road signs straight on at the Tesco extra entrance mini roundabout.
Arrive and drive without booking, pre-book advisable in high summer especially with 8-11 year olds in your group. Larger groups of 8+ drivers can have exclusive use of the track in grand prix style events. Your adrenaline will be rushing in the driver’s seat of our new Sodi Cadet 170cc or RT8 Karts with 270cc of horsepower at the pedals.
Whatever the weather we cater with the right karts, clothing and changing and hospitality facilities for you to fully enjoy your race day experience.
A warm welcome awaits you from ‘La Babalu’ licensed bar. Menu available for pre-bookings and parties, with WiFi and exceptional Clubhouse hospitality making us an all ages destination.
NEW from NOVEMBER 2017 - new track layout at Wight Karting giving every driver the chance to drive the track in the 45mph karts in complete reverse, changing their racing experience.
We welcome groups of 20-40 children ages 8-18 where there is space for classroom activities and catering is available on site. For more information and rates please contact us.
