Booking Terms and Conditions

Payment

For all bookings a deposit of £10 per driver will be taken at the time of booking. For larger groups (over 10 people) we may request a 50% deposit.

Deposits are non-refundable. Once confirmed by us, your deposit payment secures your booking and constitutes a binding contract between yourself/your group and The Race Club Karting UK Ltd. You are responsible for verifying that the details of your booking are accurate at the time of deposit payment.

A deposit payment also acts as confirmation that you have read, understood and will adhere to the Terms & Conditions and Organiser Information.

If your driver number decreases from the amount stated when booking, you will forfeit any deposit paid for the expected number of drivers/teams. If the driver/team number falls below the minimum number for that format, the full race fee for each driver/team below the minimum is payable.

If your driver number increases from the amount stated when booking, an additional deposit is due for each driver over the booked number. We will do our best to accommodate extra drivers on the day if possible but cannot guarantee additional spaces.

Full balance payment is due prior to your event. This can be taken on arrival for most events if payment is made by Cash, Credit or Debit card. Cheques and BACS payments must have arrived and cleared our account at least 7 working days prior to your event, or an alternative method of payment will be requested.

All prices inclusive of VAT. Prices are subject to change without notice.

Arrival

We run a very tight schedule due to popularity. You understand that you are booking a time slot and that failure to arrive at the specified arrival time may result in your event being cancelled and deposits forfeited.

Standard arrival time is at least 20 minutes prior to the event start time unless otherwise stated. Larger groups (over 9 drivers) Junior and Family bookings are required to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the event start time.

All Drivers must view and understand the Drivers Briefing which will take place before the event. Late arrivals may not omit this part of the process. If a driver is not fully paid and kitted up by the time the safety briefing begins, they will not be able to participate in the event.

Food & Drink

You are not permitted to bring food and drink onto the premises without prior permission. A cover charge may apply if you wish to arrange your own catering for an event.We have a resturant serving snacks, drinks and confectionary. Hot food may be served subject to availability on the day. Full catering can be provided as part of your event but this must be pre-booked.

Session Timings

Some people find it difficult to coordinate the kart controls on their first few times in a kart. If the pre-session training takes excessively longer than expected, this may result in on-track time being cut short to ensure timings for subsequent bookings.

Occasionally you may experience a delay due to essential track or kart maintenance necessary for your safety both during and in-between bookings. We will always endeavour to complete work as quickly as possible to minimise disruption.

Cancellation

Should you cancel an event after a deposit has been paid, you will forfeit the deposit.

Indoor kart circuits can sometimes be at risk of developing condensation on the circuit under certain weather & atmospheric conditions. This is extremely unlikely to occur during your event (1/1000 chance based on our historical data), however, condensation effectively ‘floods’ the track surface making it extremely hazardous to drive on. Whilst we have a number of prevention measures in place, it may sometimes be necessary to postpone an event whilst the track is cleared and dried.

If an event has to be cancelled by us due to circumstances outside of our control, we will try to inform you at the earliest opportunity and will rebook you, if appropriate, on another day. However, your deposit cannot be refunded and no claims will be accepted relating to costs incurred as a result of a cancellation.
