Rye House Kart Raceway is one of the top rated kart tracks in the UK and is where many F1 stars started their racing careers, which can be seen in this recent BBC go karting feature with Lewis Hamilton. The circuit has capacity for up to 25 twin engine pro karts (capable of over 65mph) on track as well as a dedicated junior circuit for under 8s. The venue has good conference facilities and meeting rooms, cafe & bar as well as an excellent viewing area. There are a wide range of karting activities and races to choose from for groups and individuals and Rye track is easily accessible from the M25.What about this instead.

Rye House

Rye House Stadium is located in the eastern part of Hoddeston. It is most easily reached from the A10 ten miles north of the M25. Leave the A10 at the Hoddeston turn off. Turn towards Hoddeston at the roundabout at the top of the slip road. At the next roundabout turn left then right at the following one. Turn left at the 'T' junction at the end of the one-way section. Turn right at the mini roundabout and follow the road past a parade of shops, over a canal, a railway and river and just behind Rye's Pub is the Rye House Stadium complex. The circuit is beyond the stock car and greyhound track.
