I went there for my son's birthday surprise went into the simulation parts of the experience the guys were very attentive and guided me a complete novice two modern technology but it was brilliant once I got the hang of it .👍 I then went over to the track OMG after a couple of laps grasped how quick the karts were and then realise it was all down to me. the staff guided us every inch of the way to make the experience brilliant the staff member Luke an his team who was watching over us and every time I lost control they was there to get me going again the right way around the track . Staff deserves a medal. I will definitely be arranging a team day out with work lads .100% I can't wait I loved it that much smiling from ear to ear🤣👍. Thank you Midland kating for a lovely time 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Took our son and his friends for his 18th birthday. Great value. Organised a full GP with qualifying and race to make us all feel like F1 drivers! Including podium celebrations for the winners. The marshals are really helpful with driving tips. On-site cafe does great, simple good value food as well. Thoroughly recommend.

Once again absolutely delighted with the staff very friendly and helpful nothing is too much trouble for them. I'm disabled with a week right side and I'm super Impressed by the way I was treated. Awesome new circuit layout much prefer it to how it used to be. Like I said very very friendly and very helpful guys and girls so thank you all for making it a very special day.i had to use the hand controls very tiring with having to throttle and turn at the Same time with only one arm. But I asked the guys to inflate the tyres and it was night and day better 👍👍👍👍😎😎😎😎😎😎😎

Excellent day. Great staff, great vibes, karts and track. Really well presented. Our group was in at 4pm. We were all well looked after and welcomed. Great podium at the end with the nosecco. Many thanks to all the team and stitching me up with pink learner racesuit 😅. All the best and we look forward to coming again in the future.

What a great place to take the kids, we booked this, wanting the grandkids to have a great experience. We weren't disappointed, we were welcomed by Tash on arrival and she explained to our grandkids what was going to happen, we all watched a safety video and then they were kitted up in racing overalls went through and had helmets and neck brace and gloves. It wasn't long before they were in the karts and steadily going around the track, one of our grandkids was a bit nervous but Tash did a great job in talking with him and saying it was going to be ok, he did one lap and then settled in to it and didn't come off the track till the session finished. They both built up the confidence as time went on and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They can't wait to go again. The team there, and especially Tash, helped us have a great experience. Thank you, and we'll be back again soon.

Mate of mine booked this for my birthday and i’d give this track 10 stars if i could. First time here and we got everybodys dream scenario of a patchy wet to dry weather transition over 45 mins. The track was so much fun in the wet and delivered incredible grip once dry. The 270cc Karts were fantastic, lovely feel and 1000x better than most venues. The track flows really well and has clearly been designed by someone who knows what people want, less of the generic 180 tight hairpins that we’re all used to and more of a fun balance with lots of flat out and technical sections. Staff were incredible and couldn’t help enough, timing printouts were bang on and we had them in our hands the second we got off track. In the 10 years we’ve been going karting together this was probably the best experience we’ve had.

We paid a visit yesterday morning, and the weather was kind with added to the experience. The karts were quick enough to keep my 9 year old happy. The staff are super friendly, and the cafe is there if you fancy a breakfast or quick snack. We had an early booking which meant that my son had the track to himself which he loved, for the price we found the experience fab and would certainly recommend.

Went with work and had a great time doing an endurance race for 2 hours in teams. Karts were quick and responsive along with the track being good fun. Marshalls were quick to help any kart that spun and the time tracker you can get to monitor the live times was very detailed.

Stu Stretton

Did a two hour endurance here tonight and loved every minute of it (well actually that’s a lie, definitely don’t try it as a solo driver on the hottest day of the year so far…!) Marshalling was excellent, karts are in excellent condition and lovely to drive Dan and his team this evening we’re excellent, efficient and dealt with incidents very well to deliver an excellent race Will certainly be back, but will bring some teammates next time

I booked a 45 min session for my family. My son has autism and didn't know how he would deal with it. Midlands Karting made us all feel comfortable and relaxed especially my son. My son really enjoyed sitting in the two seater going around the track. Thank you to all the team for making it a memorable day for all of us. I would definitely recommend trying this place out.

Nice technical track with a 'street circuit' feel courtesy of it being lined with tyre walls. New karts which are fast and responsive. Staff are friendly and very professional and organisation is excellent.

Hi guys, been taking part in the midlands karting championship this weekend and what an absolutely superb day it's been! Massive shoutout to all the marshals, race director, management, everyone for a brilliant day! The new karts have been wonderful to drive, closest racing I've ever had! Masisve thank you to all the staff!

Booked a session to mark my nephews 16th birthday, he has special needs and has difficulty in communicating. We wanted to give him an experience that we could all take part in. There was seven us in total, we had single seat karts and my nephew was sat in a special 2 seater kart with one of the managers Dan. His kart was designed with 2 steering wheels so my nephew actually felt like he was driving. We had the track to ourselves which meant we didn’t have to worry about anyone else. My nephew had an amazing time … would highly recommend the experience especially for any special needs children.

Great set up, brilliant bit of fun even in the rain, word of advice, don't take your own helmet, they will rip you, all in good fun mind, thank you to all of the team for your efforts, good luck and hopefully see you all again, well recommend 👍🏾 Dan the helmet man

This is a 5star attraction. Had such an adrenaline rush. If you like speed and to test your driving abilities. It’s a must, especially when it’s wet and raining.!! Conner made sure we were all well briefed and kitted out before we took track. Thanks to him and the other marshals we all had a fantastic time. I’m certain I’ll be returning to improve my times. Only one whinge the results sent to us were not correct. Still gave it 5 stars. Still buzzing.

Booked my daughter who has additional needs in for a 20 minute session with Dan the instructor in a 2 man kart, she loved it! Dan was brilliant, explained everything and put my daughter at ease straight away. Thank you Dan and the team we'll definately be back and next time I think she'll try going solo. Such a wonderful, positive experience for her.

We had an incredible time at Midland Karting! Luke the track manager was great from start to finish, ensuring everything ran smoothly and making sure everyone had a good time. He impressed us with his accommodating nature, handling last-minute changes for our big group and ensuring everyone was taken care of. The well-designed track provided an immersive racing environment, and the karts were quick yet easy to drive, adding to the excitement. The excellent value for the price we paid made the experience even better. All the staff’s passion for karting and commitment to customer satisfaction shone through during our visit. They went above and beyond to create a fantastic time for each of us. It was a truly unforgettable day, and all of us in the group would love to return to Midland Karting for more fun.

We do 'Owner Karting' here first Monday of the month, every month, and we will continue to do so. The track is amazing, can get some good competition going between team members. Staff are very polite, welcoming and above all, able to have a laugh! We highly recommend Midland Karting to anyone who owns their own Kart and would like to hire a decent track to have a blast! See you all again next month!

I recently attended a groom's party at Midland Karting place, and I highly recommend it. The staff was incredibly friendly, making the experience enjoyable from start to finish. They were accommodating and provided excellent customer service. It's a fantastic place for groups, as they can easily accommodate large parties and ensure everyone has a great time. I had a blast and would definitely go back for another fun-filled adventure!

90min race of adrenaline pumping action. On the downside I did shave away all the skin on my back by sliding in the seat, but it was worth it! Scabs will heal, memories will last a lifetime

Came for my son’s birthday party today. Booked on for 30 minutes junior track. The boys had a great time, but it was made extra special by the effort Luke went to. He was really helpful when the boys needed assistance, and when he found out it was a birthday he went out of his way to make it memorable. Would recommend the activity, the location and thank Luke for a great experience.
