Owner Driver Karting Track Days at Birmingham Wheels
Kart Owner Drivers in Birmingham / West Midlands are welcome to bring along their own karts and get some extra seat time to perfect their driving skills and run-in their engines ready for their next race.
Owner Driver Test Sessions for karts are generally available whenever we are open. Each month we set aside certain Sundays to allow for a full day of testing for Cadets (min age 8 years), Juniors, Seniors and Pro-Karts. Pre-booking is essential to guarantee a place and payments can be made by either calling 0121 327 7700 or by using our online booking page.
These Open Practice days typically run from 10am - 5pm in the Summer, include an hour lunch break with gates opening around 9am. Our Owner Driver track days are flexible in terms of how each session runs to accommodate different kart classes and the number of attendees in each to allow maximum track time rotated in 15 minute sessions and will rarely be interupted by corporate bookings.
The cost is £50 per kart including one driver (10% discount when booked in advance). Additional drivers charged at £10 each.
All karts must conform to the safety standards set out by the NKA and you are expected to wear a race suit, full face helmet, gloves, balaclava and suitable footwear. It is your responsibility to ensure your kart is safe and nothing could fall off that would injure someone. Dangerous or unsafe driving will result in you being asked to leave.
Cadet and Junior drivers must be pre-booked and will need to show evidence of their competence to drive before being allowed on circuit (this can either be a current MSA license, proof of testing / racing at another circuit or having attended one of our special mid-week assessment sessions).
Unfortunately, we are unable to run Bambino, Shifter / Gearbox or Classic karts in these Open Practice sessions, however, with the exception of Bambinos, you may be able to book these types of kart into one of our mid-week sessions. Please contact us for more information.

On top of our regular monthly Owner Driver Test Sessions, we are also offering mid-week testing to small groups of single kart classes during our normal opening hours, providing there are no private bookings already in place, for all different kart types with the exception of Bambinos. Weekday testing is available at £30 for up to 2 hours of track use.
Owner Driver track time will commence at either your agreed booking time or when you first go on track (whichever is earliest), any time spent off track thereafter will still be classed as your session time. Your session may be paused and you will be asked to come off track in the event of any Hire Kart customers arriving at the circuit.
This offer also extends to certain Sundays, please call 0121 327 7700 to discuss availability.
