Welcome to Lydd

Our 1040 meter circuit is the fastest for outdoor Go Karting in Kent and one of the fastest in the country. The fast and flowing circuit is very popular with all kart drivers, whether it be Owner Drivers at the monthly Race Meetings (racing on the second Sunday each month) or Casual Racers taking part in our increasingly successful Hire Kart session(s) or adult events using our own fleet of karts .  To confirm a hire kart booking  please contact/phone the circuit direct, to firstly check availability and then to confirm a date and time.  (We do not have on-line booking facilities and cannot guarantee to accommodate walk-in customers.)

We can offer karting for kids from 6 years old (subject to height restrictions) through to adults. Our hire kart fleet ranges from Bambinos (6 – 8 years) through to senior twin engined prokarts. Our prices start at just £20 for a quarter of an hour, with a wide range of group events available. The events and prices are listed on our Hire Kart page.
