Post lockdown staged re-opening plan.

Following the recent Government announcements Red Lodge Karting plans to re-open in stages as detailed below, subject to further Government guidelines.


  • 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. This will be placed on file to act as your confirmation that you agree to the disclaimer before participating in the activity on the circuit. YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO BRING PROOF OF THIS WITH YOU SO YOU MAY PARTICIPATE ON THE DAY.

  • Unfortunately, we can only allow a maximum of two people accompanying your driver (max 3 including driver).   Any group totalling more than 3 will be asked to leave without a refund.

  • Track & Trace (COVID-19):

  • The Government is requesting we keep a log all visitors' details; these must be retained for a minimum of 21 days.  All data is secured on our premises in compliance with GDPR regulations for the safe keeping of personal information.

  • If you leave the site but plan to return again then please notify the office.

RLK management has undertaken considerable planning to ensure a safe re-opening for all customers & staff.  We will continue to follow Government guidelines which may mean that we have to amend our arrangements.

Safety procedures in place BEFORE & UPON arrival:


  • Before you arrive:

  • All public areas will be thoroughly cleaned and professionally sanitised.

  • On arrival:

  • Please ensure you leave at least 3 metres between vehicles when parking up.

  • If you did not sign an indemnity online, you will be required to sign in at the reception upon arrival.  Hand sanitiser will be provided and must be used before signing an indemnity form.

  • Please be aware social distancing procedures will be in place throughout the site and a one-way system is in place within the building.  Signage will indicate how many people are allowed in each room and off-limits areas.

  • Please wash your hands regularly during your visit using soap/sanitiser.

  • Toilets:

  • Toilets will be open but please be mindful that in order to comply with social distancing requirements, only 3 people may enter the toilet block and only one person can use the urinals at any one time.  

  • Please sanitise your hands before entering the toilet block & wash your hands thoroughly before leaving. The toilets will be regularly cleaned throughout the day but please use them with respect to other users.

  • Spectators:

  • At this time we kindly request you to limit spectator numbers to a maximum of 2 per driver.

  • Spectators must remain in the car park viewing area​ adjacent to the coffee shop until invited into an alternative viewing area. 

  • Safety Briefing:

  • If you have not driven at RLK in 2020, you will be required to attend the video briefing with social distancing measures in place.

  • If you are a known regular that has been to RLK at least twice in 2020 then you may not have to attend the video briefing but instead will have a short verbal briefing delivered outside in the undercover walkway.

  • Equipment:

  • Everyone is encouraged to use their own equipment where possible. 

  • RLK Race suits go through a hot wash after every use; crash helmets are sprayed with anti-bacterial deodoriser and subjected to a cycle in our sanitising cabinet after every use. All items display sanitising stickers showing date and time of the latest sanitising cycle.

  • Reusable balaclavas & gloves are available for purchase at reception: balaclava & gloves: £6 (balaclava only: £2)

  • On the Circuit:

  • Entry to the circuit via the paddock gate will be controlled by a Race Marshal.  All Race Marshals will wear face masks/shields and gloves.

  • Up to 12 karts will be allowed out on the circuit at any one time.

  • Kart changing will be carried out as normal steering wheels will be sanitised after every change over to avoid cross contamination between drivers.​

  • Any first aid assistance required will be attended by an appointed First aider wearing a face mask, face shield, gloves & protective PPE Marshal wear.

  • Coffee Shop

  • The Coffee shop will offer a limited takeaway menu. Opening times will vary from week to week so please contact us for updated information.

  • Trophy Presentations

  • Will be presented with social distancing measures in place.  

  • Owner Driver Testing/Mini Motos

  • If your kart/bike breaks down, we will red flag the session so that your accompanying person(s) can walk onto the circuit to retrieve your kart safely.  Unfortunately, our marshals will not be able to help with this.
