Blastacars are one of the few karting tracks that allow 8 year olds to race and they can even race with their parents (bookings essential and height restrictions apply). Our safe OSH certified Karts allow this with a combination of booster seats and extender pedals. We start first time Children aged 8 - 12 on our Kids speed. This is a safe and controllable speed that gives Children a taste for racing. The speed of the kart can be increased, this is dependent on the Childs driving ability.
The 270CC Honda Engine, Blastacars Drift Kart is an exciting race experience with a solid performing engine more powerful than an average Go Kart so don't think you can just hold your accelerator around the whole track! There is enough power to send your karts sliding into corners. You will need to give a good amount of counter steer and throttle control to ensure you can maintain the drift on a corner and then with a quick switch you will be drifting into the next!
Our Pro Speed puts drivers behind our 390CC Honda Engine, Blastacars Drift Kart. This is a true adrenaline pumping, thrilling experience. The pure torque from the engine will give you a massive rush and the angle of drift possible from this kart is exhilarating. This is a lot of power for a kart and not easy to control which is why you need to earn a "Black Card" license to drive them. See below.
Our Black Card License is rewarded to confident racers at our tracks and allows them to experience the thrill of our 390cc Pro Speed karts.
