Go-Karting is a sport which has gained huge popularity over the last couple of decades. In fact there arenow over 150 karting tracks across the UK where you can experience the adrenalin rush of karting. And due to the huge variety of indoor and outdoor circuits, groups of friends, stag and hen parties, and corporate team building groups can enjoy karting whatever the weather, or time of the year.
But there’s one type of karting which offers the ultimate in 4-wheeled thrills – the outdoor, off-road experience. There is one such activity located on the outskirts of Glasgow at Eden Leisure Village – and the track itself is a pure demon. Madtrax Mayhem is a purpose built circuit covering almost 500 metres of twists and turns, fast straights and wild jumps, and will test your driving skills to the absolute max. It’s recognised as one the top tracks for outdoor karting in Scotland and offers all the fun of go-karting combined with all the muddy skids and slides, thrills and spills of off-road. So if you fancy getting behind the wheel for the ultimate in exhilarating karting action, or just looking for a fun and perhaps a wild day with the family, Madtrax Mayhem will certainly not disappoint.
Advanced booking is required for a minimum of 8 people as well as groups up to 24. You’ll be fully kitted-out with all the right gear including driving suit, helmet and gloves, given tuition and a full safety-briefing. Before the start of each event, you are also given 2 practice laps to get the ‘feel’ of the vehicle and track. The vehicles are specially designed off-road ‘buggies’ with race-tuned 400cc engines. So novice or enthusiast, you’re guaranteed to get all the power and responsiveness you’ll need for a real off-road, adrenalin pumping, racing experience.
Track events take place every day other than Sunday and are suitable for those 16 years or over (no driving license is required). Each race consists of 4 laps of the circuit, with each driver racing a minimum of 4 times. Every race is supervised by a Race Marshal and the four fastest drivers then complete in the ‘grand finale’ for the Madtrax Mayhem trophy.
