Red Lodge Karting is Covid-19 Compliant

As far as possible we aim to keep all activities running while adhering to Government guidelines and updated Covid-19 procedures

We are still able to offer group karting providing we maintain social distancing throughout our building.  Depending on numbers, this may require groups to be separated for kitting up and safety briefings.  


If you have any queries about the procedures, please contact the circuit where we will be happy to discuss this further

  • Pre-booking will be essential & full payment will be required.  

  • You will be required to acknowledge a disclaimer explaining our full terms & conditions by entering your name at the bottom of the form before submitting to secure your place.
