Wessex Raceway is a family run business now in its 16th year of operation. As a leading member of the National Karting Association, we believe that children should be able to learn to drive petrol karts in a safe and relaxed environment.

Our new British built BIZ Cadet karts feature a 160cc petrol engine with no limiter which allows children to drive at competitive speeds on our massive indoor track once they have been trained by our friendly and professional staff.

Cadet Arrive and Drive

Arrive and Drive sessions take place on Sundays from 12-2pm and throughout the School Holidays. Drivers are on the track for 10 minutes at a time with detailed timing printouts issued after each drive. Please call to check availability.
