Lakeside karting is ideally placed for drivers from either Essex or Kent and is of course only a stone’s throw from central London.

The circuit itself is well thought out and has a decent fast section connected to a ‘technical’ area at the east end of the track. The karts are twin-engine Biz machines that are nice and quick and the venue itself has good corporate facilities.
