Any session that is booked with us will have an arrival time of 30 minutes before the start time of the session. This is a mandatory time that customers will need to be arrived for. This is to ensure that we have enough time to brief and sign in customers.
Any Driver (Main Track) under the age of 18 must have an accompanying adult with them to sign in to the venue.
We cannot guarantee a walk-in appointment will be available, therefore we strongly advise the customer to book prior, to avoid disappointment
A booking made over the phone with us is only temporary and will not form a binding contract unless a full payment is made or a deposit is taken. If the booking is made within 24 hours of the session, then we require a £10 deposit per person.
Any deposits received onto a booking are non-refundable. However a booking may be moved free of charge to another date, or payment can be kept on the system to allow a customer to book for another date.
Organizers of events are subject to a full payment fee if drivers fail to attend. Even if fewer drivers arrive than what was booked, the organizer will be liable for those reserved slots. For example, if 10 people were booked, and only 8 people arrived, the organizer will have to pay the full amount.
Any bookings canceled by the customer with less than 72 hours' notice, will be subject to a full payment fee, or no refund given.
Any driver than fails to attend, or any driver than is withdrawn from karting for other reasons, will not receive a refund.
Late arrivals may not receive their full session if availability does not allow, and no refund will be offered. We will however try to accommodate you if free slots are available.
For insurance and safety reasons, latecomers that have missed the start time of the briefing, will not be allowed to race and therefore not receive a refund.
Whilst we try and run on time this is not always possible so we advise that you allow some extra time for your visit.

In this case, the organisers are not liable for a refund and are subject to charges for any damages.
