The holidays are upon us, and with that comes endless hours that need to be filled with fun things to do for the kids. And while the odd TV game can help kill some of those hours, we’re certain parents would love to enjoy some downtime themselves as well.
Fortunately, Brentwood Karting is here to save the day – with a Funday, that is. Send the kids to enjoy an entire day of fast-paced, fun-filled karting while you get to read that all-too-elusive book or enjoy some of your favourite TV shows. Not only will the young ones have limitless amounts of fun on our track, but they’ll also get to spend time with friends (and maybe make a few new ones) while enjoying the great outdoors.
Brentwood Karting has been around since 1984, making us the experts in unforgettable karting experiences. You can rest assured, the young ones will be safe as our karting experts go to great lengths to ensure our state-of-the-art BIZ Karts are properly maintained at all times. In fact, we’ll even teach the kids about basic safety measures on our track. Your children will be safe at Brentwood Karting.
A typical Funday – which takes place every Wednesday from 09:00 until 15:00 – will give the kids an all-in-one karting experience. First, we sit the racing group down and brief the kids on basic safety rules to adhere to while on our track. We give them a proper breakdown of our flag & light system (which we use to communicate with participants while racing), the karts and how they work, basic driving theory and a quick introduction to our track. With just under 500m of track to explore – consisting of 3 exhilarating corners and two lightning-fast straights – we want to be certain our participants are thoroughly prepared for the race ahead.
Following the quick training workshop, the drivers head off to the changing rooms to suit up. Once in the pits, the drivers get into the kart and are given a quick refresher course on the various controls and pedals. With foot on the throttle, hands firmly on the steering wheel and our karts’ powerful engines roaring and ready to go, the racers set off on their first lap.
From 10:00 to 12:30, the drivers can make their way around the track at their own pace, slowly and calmly acclimatising themselves to the track and their kart. With about 2 hours of non-stop driving behind them, the racers are finally ready to take part in their first proper heat. The battle for the quickest lap time is officially on!
To keep things organised, the group is divided into smaller teams. From these teams, the top-2 drivers showcasing the quickest times will make it through to the grand final. Consisting of 10 of the best drivers, the grand final is where things really heat up, as the racers blast through corners and bravely overtake their opponents for the ultimate prize and a podium finish.
But at Brentwood Karting, everyone’s a winner. As race day concludes, all participants are given a participation certificate which they can show off to their friends and family. The top-3 drivers of the day are also treated to a proper podium ceremony where they’ll each receive a medal for their stellar performance.
While the main focus is on the young ones, parents are encouraged to also spend the day with us. With free parking, wi-fi and a spectator area giving you a phenomenal view of the track, it’s like your own mini-visit to Monaco…
