Karting in Oxford
Whether you’re looking for a team building event, celebrating a special occasion, or you’re simply out to enjoy the thrill of racing yourself just millimeters from the ground with unbelievable control at your fingertips, Formula Fast is the place to be for adult karting.
For Karting you’ll need comfortable and correctly fitted race-gear to focus on your driving with no distractions – and most importantly to keep you safe. Ask a member of the team if you’re not sure about sizing. Don’t break the rules during karting! They are there for a reason, and that is to keep you and everyone else safe. More often than not, making contact, sliding or driving erratically or aggressively will not only slow you down, but will risk you being removed from the track. This will not improve your laptimes.
Other drivers may not drive predictably – so you’ll always need to anticipate and look well ahead to spot (and react to) any obstacles, opportunities and signals from the marshals. Anticipate early, and you’ll always have the advantage.
During Karting you should Know Your Limits. It may not look it, but karting is a physically demanding sport. If you feel excessively tired or unwell, pull into the pits and let us know. You won’t win any medals for finishing the race at the cost of your personal wellbeing. The same goes for ability – if you don’t feel fully in control, turn the speed down a notch. Most people perform at their best when they’re enjoying what they do, so don’t ‘overthink’ your driving – go out, enjoy it, improve your driving one step at a time and your speed and improvement in technique will come to you naturally.
The club has produced many famous drivers, both in karting and motor racing. The circuit is registered as a Grade 3 heritage motor racing venue in LARAs (Land Access and Recreation Association) register.
