South West Karting is Somerset’s Number One Outdoor Karting experience. With over 20 years of Indoor Karting experience the company has now been operating this outdoor circuit since early 2016. The Haynes outdoor track is located next to the newly re-developed and iconic, Haynes International Motor Museum, at Sparkford near Yeovil. The 480 metre track has 200cc Biz petrol-powered karts and a blend of fast sweeping bends allows guests to race as fast as they like, or at a leisurely pace, making Southwest Karting Haynes a perfect teambuilding location for both private parties and corporate events.
New for 2019 is the introduction of side-by-side 270cc twin seater Karts, able to be driven by anyone aged 18 or over, with a passenger of at least 6 years old. Perfect for the younger ones or disabled who are unable to drive themselves.
Whether you’re a beginner learning lines or a budding professional up against the Tag Heuer timing system, the highly experienced team will assist you to become quicker and safer.
