Just the phrase itself is enough to conjure up nostalgic childhood memories. It was often the first time we were let loose behind a wheel to re-enact the thrills of our formula one heroes.
We may be all grown up now and some of us may have progressed onto big boy cars but now, thanks to the people over at Team Sport kids and big kids alike can tear up the tarmac once more with the opening of Manchester’s first city centre indoor Go Kart track!
Situated in the until now unused basement area of Manchester Arena, The impressive brand new 1.5m project features a track that spans 2 levels and is able to hold 16 cars as they race around the 40 second lap at speeds of up to 40mph.
Of course you are. There’s a spectator area for your friends that prefer to watch the action from the sidelines – plus a fully-licensed bar so you can celebrate your victory or drown your embarrassing failures after the race – it’s a one-stop thrill shop of high octane fun.
Team Sport offer a variety of ticket options and prices depending on your chosen amount of race time and time of the week you visit.
There are also discounts for kids, large groups and dedicated speed addicts can receive permanent discounts as well as some awesome members-only offers (£19.95 a year.)
In addition to their regular events, Team Sport also offer special packages for Hen & Stag parties and corporate events where busy workers can hang up their ties in favor of fully catered karting fun including UNLIMITED pizza and even have the chance to race against the original, Top Gear Stig – Perry McCarthy!
