If the closest you come to fighting for control over your direction in life means wrestling your partner/kids/pets for the TV remote then maybe you need to get off the sofa and do something more nerve-jangling instead.
Corrie, Top Gear or Animal Hospital should not be the most important decision in anyone’s life.
By strange coincidence, today’s Big Deal is just the ticket for thrill seekers.
The deal is for two people, children or adults, to enjoy thirty minutes karting at Knockhill, the Fife racetrack which hosts top UK motorsport events such as British Touring Cars, British Superbikes and The Scottish Motorshow.
Knockhill’s outdoor karting track is the only Scottish karting centre running LPG Gas Karts. To use highly technical engineering terms, these little demons, powered by Honda 270cc engines, go like the clappers from a standing start.
If you are riding the Sodi GT2 karts then you will be thundering around the 500 metre, floodlit course at speeds of up to 50mph.
Younger Lewis Hamiltons in the cadet karts will hit a top speed of about 25mph.
Adult karting sessions in the Sodi GT2 Karts are for anyone over 5’2 in height. This is approximately twelve years plus.
Cadet karting sessions in Biz Cadet Karts are for kids only with a minimum height restriction of 4’2; approximately eight to eleven years old.
Whether it’s a group karting event with mates or colleagues, a stag/hen party or just a great day out with family and friends, karting at Knockhill will appeal to all shades of speed freak.
Of course, no-one gets the green light at Knockhill before being kitted out in full race suits, helmets, gloves and neck braces. Each driver will also be given a short karting briefing covering general safety and important flag signals before climbing into their chariots.
If you want to accelerate your way to pole position then take a deep breath, gun the engine and set the controls for today’s Big Deal:
£28 for 30 minutes karting for two people at Knockhill Racing Circuit; a 53% saving on the standard £60
