The fastest recorded lap on the Knockhill karting circuit was a blistering 31.85 seconds.
If any budding Lewis Hamiltons reckon they’ve got what it takes to smash that record then today’s Big Deal on an Endurance Race at Knockhill is their chance to put pedal to the metal and test their driving skills to the limit.
Knockhill winner’s trophy
This high speed Big Deal is for one person to take part in a Karting Endurance Race at Knockhill’s purpose built karting track.
Located just twenty minutes from Edinburgh, the karting track is part of Scotland’s national motorsports centre.
Taking place on Wednesday evenings, the Endurance Race is designed to bring out team spirit and team competitiveness.
On the evening, all the racing drivers will be split into teams and will compete against each other to become the fastest on the track.
Team tactics, driver changeovers and team choice are all key to achieving a place on the podium and lifting the Knockhill winner’s trophy!
With friends or fly solo
This race would be ideal for a group of friends or you can just turn up by yourself and the race organisers will match you up with a team.
The final number of competitors will determine the amount of laps per race but each driver will complete at least 50 laps and the experience will last 2-4 hours.
The Knockhill fleet of SODI Karts are fuelled by LPG Gas making them quick, smooth and very responsive from a standing start. Powered by a 270cc Honda engine, the Karts are capable of speeds up to 50mph on the straights.
The purpose built karting track is 500m long by 9m wide and fully floodlit. Up to the minute lap timing technology is installed in every Kart at Knockhill allowing you to track your progress and take home a printout of your times.
The Endurance Race provides plenty of thrills but driver safety is paramount. As well as being given a NKA-approved track safety briefing, all drivers are fully kitted out in full race suits, helmets, gloves and neck braces.
Fantastic day out
This exciting Big Deal would be perfect for stag and hen parties; groups of friends; work outings or simply a great gift for the speed freak in the family.
