Exhilarating day out 

Rye House Kart Raceway is now a famous venue as it was here that a young Lewis Hamilton started his career as a boy. It has quickly become one of the UK’s foremost and recognised karting centres. Rye House offers the perfect introduction into the world of motorsport. A fantastic opportunity to enjoy the thrills and exhilaration of go-karting. Experiences like this can start a life long passion in children. The historic racing circuit is one of the oldest in existence and over the years has hosted many national and international meetings, as well as club meetings. “Rye House has always been a great circuit, run by great people who have been incredibly supportive throughout my career. This is where I started and let’s hope that for every one of you, this could be where your career begins too” Lewis Hamilton – Formula 1 world champion. 

Adult karting

Open GP’s are by far the most popular race format. With no minimum number required, individuals can compete against a full grid on the main circuit. Once booked, you will be required for signing on, after a driver briefing qualifying gets underway, then into a full on race. Once the chequered flag has flown drivers will congregate in the hospitality suite and bar, for post race banter, lap print outs and of course a few beers (age permitting).

Junior karting

Rye House offers the younger race enthusiasts an introduction in to the world of motor sport on either the main or junior circuit, subject to age and height restrictions. Available 7 days a week, using the Main circuit or Junior circuit, subject to booking. Once signed in, kitted and briefed, drivers will test themselves on the demanding Rye House Circuit.
