Welcome to the Midland's premier outdoor karting experience.

Coronavirus

The health and safety of our guests, visitors and colleagues has always been of the utmost importance to us here at Midland Karting. As a result, we have published the following policy outlining how we will allow guests on-site whilst continuing to follow the Government’s advice and guidance on managing the virus.

We're Good To Go!

We’re delighted to be awarded the VisitEngland ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry charter mark.

This means that Midland Karting meets the Government and public health guidance on Covid-19, and that we have all of the required health and safety processes in place to safely re-open once lockdown restrictions allow.

Symptomatic or tested positive?

If you are symptomatic, have spent time within the last two weeks of someone who has been showing symptoms (or tested positive for) Coronavirus, we ask that you do not visit us and instead follow the Government's advice on isolation. We'll be happy to reschedule your event for another time.

Effective from Monday 19th July 2021

Our colleagues will continue to wear face coverings.

Please keep wearing a face covering when indoors, if you can. Although no longer a legal requirement, the Government expect and recommend people wear coverings when in crowded or enclosed spaces.

We will continue to operate with intense cleaning of surfaces, race suits and helmets.

We will continue to have hand sanitising stations and request guests use them regularly during their time with us.

All drivers wearing a Midland Karting helmet must wear a balaclava. These can be purchased during booking or at the circuit.

We will continue recording guest details, and provide them to NHS Track and Trace if requested.

Finally, we’ll continue to follow the Government guidelines and may update this information and/or our policies at short notice as-and-when required. Please continue to monitor this page and/or our social media pages for updates.
