LIGHTS OUT

Top Gear (UK) - - INTAKE -

There’s noth­ing quite like that feel­ing when you strap in, slide the vi­sor down and lock your eyes on the tar­mac stretch­ing in front of you. Let’s face it, un­less you lead a very lucky life, you don’t get to hoon around, smok­ing the tyres with the ul­ti­mate goal of un­bri­dled speed very of­ten, and Day­tona’s cir­cuits are the ideal place to chan­nel your in­ner Lewis Hamil­ton.

Day­tona Mo­tor­sport has cir­cuits in Mil­ton Keynes, Sandown Park and Tam­worth, and its zippy two-stroke DMAX karts make the per­fect char­iot in which petrol­heads can ex­pe­ri­ence top-level kart rac­ing. There is an en­tic­ing range of dif­fer­ent events you can par­tic­i­pate in, in­clud­ing Ar­rive&Drive – a timed ses­sion that al­lows you keep push­ing for that fastest lap – as well as Open Races and Cham­pi­onships that com­prise full qual­i­fy­ing ses­sions and a win­ner-takes-all race for the chance to step atop the podium.

The cir­cuits them­selves of­fer a thrilling chal­lenge all the way round.

It all be­gan at 1,200m-long Mil­ton Keynes. This en­tic­ing blend of tight hair­pins and fast straights make it the UK’s ul­ti­mate out­door kart track, and the flood­lights al­low it to stay open right up to 10pm. Sandown Park and Tam­worth make for sim­i­larly thrilling out­door ex­pe­ri­ences – they aren’t your usual in­door cir­cuits, that’s for sure!

If you want to give your clients an adren­a­line-packed day away from the of­fice, or are plan­ning the mother of all birth­day par­ties, or even a stag do, there’s nowhere bet­ter in the coun­try to in­dulge your need for speed than at one of Day­tona’s cir­cuits.
