Karting at Haynes

South West Karting reopening schedule...

Due to the current national lockdown we are closed. When we reopen our track will have a redesigned layout with new barrier systems, start/finish gantry lighting, sector timing, larger communal area (to support better social distancing and customer experience) amongst a host of other changes. We hope to see all of you on the newly refurbished track in 2021, and if you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to get in touch.


What if I have a postponed booking with you?

Bookings that have been postponed, firstly, thank you for holding your booking deposits with us and we will be contacting you over the course of this week to see if you’re happy for us to hold the bookings for future use, or to receive a refund of your deposit.

I have a gift voucher that expires between 23/3/2020 and 1/2/2021, what can I do?

All gift vouchers due to expire between these dates are being automatically extended until 31/12/2021.

Can I make a booking for when you re-open?

We will be taking new bookings in January 2021.
