An indoor karting centre in Northampton is expanding this year by opening a new radio control circuit, indoor crazy golf and a children’s race track.

Northampton Indoor Karting in St James has revealed its plans for the year, which include building on its success in targeting businesses and schools, as well as raising money for charity.

The centre has a race track for indoor karts, which reach average speeds of about 28mph.

A spokesman for the centre said: “Throughout the past 12 months, we have made exceptional efforts in attending schools and colleges for workshop presentations.

“We have also launched a new corporate range of activities for businesses who want hands-on, action-packed entertainment for their team and guests.

“This summer will see the addition of a radio control circuit, indoor crazy golf course and the installation of a new outdoor facility that can accommodate a children’s race track, archery range or a number of inflatable attractions,” he added.

Thousands of pounds have also been raised for charity through the different packages that are offered to fund-raisers.

“The relaunch of our charity 50:50 format and introduction of our new Formula 1 simulators helped the Lisa Kent Trust raise more than £3,500 for the development of new schools in Gambia.

“£1,000 of this was donated by Northampton Indoor Karting as part of the race package, the rest raised via the new addition and our new ‘Race Directors £££ Raising Menu’,” the spokeman added.

General manager Shane Daly said: “We have extended our range of activities because we recognise that businesses and customers in general want more out of their track day experience.

“By creating multi-activity we can not only provide a one-stop solution for businesses and corporate days out, but we can offer more for schools, family fun days and to motorsport fans all round.”
