AboutSituated on the Hampshire/Wiltshire/Dorset border, Wessex Raceway is a leading member of the National Karting Association - the body that oversees the industry's quality and safety standards.
At Wessex Raceway we offer a range of Race Formats & Facilities for Corporate groups & Private Parties as well as Cadet karting for children aged 8 and over.
Wessex Raceway has a unique 700-metre indoor asphalt track, free of pillars with no ramps or bridges - which allows ALL our adult karts to reach a maximum speed of over 50 miles per hour!
We have just taken delivery of a stunning fleet of Brand New Karts from British manufacturer BIZ. Whilst we have been running BIZ karts for well over a decade the new fleet feature some very important improvements which make them not only an excellent drive but safe too.
At Wessex Raceway we have created one of the largest indoor tracks in Europe, designed to ensure maximum speed for our kart fleet, whether its 40mph for Cadets or 50mph for Adults.
For adults Wessex Raceway has 270cc BIZ Karts with the latest safety and comfort innovations, lower emissions and top speeds of 50mph! They are powered by Liquid Propane Gas and have the latest catalytic technology built into the engines so that particulate emissions are vastly reduced when compared to petrol.
Seats and pedals are both fully adjustable which means that these karts will accommodate drivers of all sizes, plus the abundance of power means that larger drivers are no longer at a disadvantage when racing with light weight competitors.
