Book your event: Phone the Raceline 01268 777765 (you will speak to a human being between 9.30am – 5.30pm, 7 days per week or at other times leave your number and we will ring you back as soon as possible) or email: info@essexkarting.co.uk and we will answer any queries you might have and confirm availability for the following:

An approximate number of drivers taking part? Your choice of Event? Your preferred date and time for arrival?

Subject to availability, Grand Prix and Endurance Events can be booked at various times Monday to Friday during the day, or from 6pm or later in the evening.  Sprint Events can be booked midweek from Monday to Friday during the day or from 6pm or later, Monday to Thursday evenings. (Usual evening start times are around 7pm) Grand Prix Race Meetings can be booked for Saturdays at 10am/ 1pm/ or 6.30pm or on Sundays at either 10am/ 5pm/6.30pm and are between approximately 2 ½ and 3 ½ hours duration depending on the number of drivers and choice of event. Sprint Events can be booked for Saturdays at 10am/ 4.30pm or 6.30pm and are between 1 ¼ and 2 ¼ hrs duration depending on choice of event.  (Other times for any Race Event can be arranged subject to availability)

Then make a provisional booking:  You will then need to collect/provide a minimum deposit of £20 per driver (£40 per team for Endurance Races) for the minimum number of your booking.  We need to receive the deposits to secure the booking within 10 days of you making the booking. Some organisers would rather pay in full at this point. If deposits only are paid, the balance of weekend/bank holiday or all December bookings is due 2 weeks prior to the date of the booking.  The balance of midweek (except December) bookings can be paid on the day/night of racing. We always allow for up to 2 additional divers who can be added and paid for in full on the day of racing if required (subject to minimum/maximum numbers required for any event). We accept payments by credit/debit card by phone or at reception along with cash payments or if you use internet banking we accept BACS payments (our preferred method of accepting payments). If requested, we can email invoices for deposit /full payments.

There is no better incentive than the promise of a race day and the fact that all of your participants, regardless of sex, position or status, will be racing alongside one another, making it an adrenalin-pumping, fun-filled and memorable Christmas celebration! No experience is necessary to take part in a Christmas Race Event.  Even the most reserved participants become very competitive beings when glory and a trophy is at stake!
