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?

Grand Prix Race Meetings on Saturday are usually booked at 10am/ 1pm/ or 6.30pm or on Sundays at either 10am/ 5pm/6.30pm and are between 2 ½ and 3 ½ hours duration depending on the number of drivers and choice of event.

Sprint Events on Saturday are usually booked at 10am/ 4.30pm or 6.30pm and are between 1 ¼ and 2 ¼ hrs duration depending on choice of event.

Midweek Grand Prix and Sprint Events can be booked for various arrival times Monday to Friday during the day, or 6pm or later in the evening.

(Other times for either Race Event can be arranged subject to availability)

Then make a provisional booking, which we can hold for up to 10 days, by which time you will need to collect a minimum deposit of £20 per driver for the minimum number of your booking. Some organisers would rather pay in full at this point.

If deposits only are paid, the balance of weekend/bank holiday bookings is due 2 weeks prior to the date of the booking. The balance of midweek 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).

Terms & Conditions

All drivers must be free or alcohol on arrival and must not consume alcohol during the event.

Any credit/debit cards used to make a telephone payment must be presented by the card holder for verification on the day of racing.

All payments are non-refundable or transferable unless 30 days written notice is given prior to event.

Bookings may be cancelled if deposits are not received by the allotted time.
