Hampton Downs Go Kart Leader Board Challenge

Make a name for yourself in the Hampton Downs Go Kart Leader Board Challenge, Powered by Driven, happening every Sunday until the 3rd April 2022. There will be prizes for the fastest in two weight divisions and the overall winners in both weight divisions will win a trip for two to our sister circuit Highlands, which will include flights, one night’s accommodation, Ferrari hot Laps, Muscle Car U-Drive Experiences, Go Karts and free entry to the Museum.
How it works:
Every Sunday you have the opportunity to post your fastest lap time to qualify for the Hampton Downs Go Kart Leader Board races which will take place in the morning at 12pm and 12.15pm, and again at 4pm and 4.15pm on the BIG 830m Le Mans track.
You will need to qualify on the short track for the Leader Board races, with the fastest 10 drivers in each weight division racing free of charge on the big 830m track where you will have the opportunity to get your name on the Leader Board.


Weight Divisions are as follows:

Lightweight Division: Under 90kg
Heavyweight Division: Over 90kg

Please note, there is a 120kg limit on the Go Karts.

The Leader Board will only consist of 10 spots for each weight division.

At the end of this promotion, the fastest time in each weight division will win a trip to Highlands, for two people. The nine who do not, will win five free sessions at the Hampton Go Karts each.
