Formula 1 Drivers Choose Kart World to Race

Wannabe racing drivers of all ages queued patiently, waiting for the doors to open at Diggerland Yorkshire’s brand new attraction, “Kart World” on Saturday. The new purpose built indoor kart course, has proven to be a great success, with drivers choosing to kick-start their weekends at full speed!

Diggerland Yorkshire’s Park Manager, Chris Simmonett said, “It was a fantastic day, everyone had a brilliant time and said they would definitely come again, the Kart World launch was a great success.”

The track is open to everyone from 9-10am on Saturday mornings. For just £5.00 per person, visitors as young as 6 can turn up and drive in a fun and family-friendly environment. Anyone over the age of 17 can race up to speeds of 40mph in the Surperkarts!

Mary Cole from Wakefield visited with her 2 childrenand said, “It’s very good value for money, the boys have really enjoyed themselves. They’ve made me promise to bring them again in Easter and I certainly will.”

Kart World, located off Willowbridge Lane, Castleford, is open every Saturday up until 31st October 2014. Kart World is exclusive to Diggerland Yorkshire and is the only indoor track within 15 miles. For a special event with a twist, groups and parties can also prebook a visit
