Fancy yourself as the next Jenson Button? Try your hand at go-karting and release the inner competitor in you…

Doing it at speed with your bum just two inches off the ground and in competition with your colleagues or customers is a guaranteed way to get the adrenaline pumping. Doing it as a team is just about the best way to get team members to bond. We are talking about go-karting here, but not the fairground go-karts found by the seaside. This is karting for grown-ups at Buckmore Park, the very circuit where Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton honed their racing skills as youngsters.

Located in the beautiful Kentish woodland, just off Junction 3 of the M2, the circuit makes the perfect venue for team building, sales meetings, product launches and seminars. Buckmore can offer just the right package for all group sizes. Whether it is a simple team building session for eight or a full-blown product launch for 280, Buckmore can tailor a package to suit. A variety of air-conditioned suites, all with wireless Internet access and a catering service that can be as simple as coffee and biscuits right up to a full silver service meal.

Kart racing formats are tailored by Buckmore to your requirements. It might be that for a meeting of your sales force a direct head-to-head race might encourage the competitive spirit. If team building is the name of the game, then a team endurance race is ideal. This requires teamwork and co-operation, as getting the driver change strategy right and calculating fuel stops correctly is all part of the fun, and the only way to reach the podium.

Buckmore offer a huge fleet of 390cc-powered karts that are extremely adjustable and suit virtually all sizes from five foot to 6 foot eight. Your group will talk about their event for months or even years afterward.

And there’s even karts for your little ones too. Whether you are looking to hold a birthday party, a family-friendly event or a day out for the kids – or even kart training to get them on the ladder to regular racing – Buckmore has a host of activities available for children aged four to 16.

Talk to Buckmore’s friendly team and find out for yourself just what a cost effective and exciting way of combining business with pleasure really is. Smiling staff and happy customers all round.
