This is what happens when you give somebody a clean sheet of paper and tell them to go a design a kart track; you get everything! At last, circuit owners in the UK have woken up to what their rivals on the continent have been doing for years and are starting to provide something for all the family. A12 has got the lot, from arcade games to relaxation areas to a bar and, of course, a go-kart track. A lot of thought has gone into this venue and it really is state-of-the-art and every type of group can be catered for and its proximity to London will mean for some that it is an ideal venue for a night out or a stag/hen party. Definitely not to be missed.
