Go Karting

Welcome to the Go Karting Society!

Are you looking for a thrill? Wanting to meet like-minded individuals with the same interests as you? Or simply want to try something new? We are the society for you!

We offer Go Karting to a range of skill levels so regardless whether you are a beginner or have been karting before then there is something we can offer for you. 

We are a group of individuals who share a passion in Go Karting and all things racing and reguarly go out to our local indoor karting track at JDR Karting which is located in Gloucester. 

What do we have to offer for you?

  • A fun and exciting time go karting with like-minded people who enjoy the activity as much as you do
  • The willingness to teach and advise you on karting and how you could improve your time and technique
  • Fun filled socials and other exciting events such as trips to TeamSport tracks and other racing-inspired trips

Do I need to bring anything to events?

No you don't need to bring anything with you to sessions however it is compulsory to wear balaclavas when karting but these can be provided if you do not already have one. However, you're more than welcome to bring racing gloves, racing shoes and balaclavas if you have any of them already. Race suits and helemets are provided by the venue.
