Gloucester's premier indoor karting arena! The circuit is approximately 300m long with various circuit features. There are three very exciting High-Speed Banking corners, which greatly aid overtaking opportunities. These corners coupled with a uniform tarmac surface provide a very fast track for sensational high-speed racing.

All of the karts are custom built and are powered by the popular 160cc Honda 4-stroke engine, which can power the karts to speeds in excess of 40mph.

There is also the opportunity to watch the racers, provided by two purpose built multi-level viewing platforms, which contain a series of vending machines providing sweets, crisps, confectionary, hot & cold drinks and also games machines to keep all ages entertained.
We offer computerised lap timing allowing drivers to view their lap times, overall positions and when they are racing next.

There is also a junior circuit which is ideal for 4-12 year olds. It is a separate track and is smaller than the main track, which enables lower speeds to be maintained in order to improve safety.

JDR karting is a popular venue for various events including Birthdays, Stag/Hen Parties, Team Building days and Childrens Parties. There is the option for snacks/meals to be provided with the packages or for you to bring you own food.
