Go Karting in Milton Keynes

A track intertwined with British Racing Heritage

The 1,360 metre outdoor track was originally designed by British Formula One World Champion legend James Hunt, and the venue spent its first years of operation as the James Hunt Racing Centre. Before it was famous for go-karting, the track originally hosted a fleet of ‘Sunset Formula Cars’ from 1990.

Daytona Motorsport acquired the track in 1996, and it has since been the UK’s leading go-karting track for racing, corporate events, birthday parties, championships, stag and hen dos, junior racing and more. Daytona’s ‘International Circuit‘ in Milton Keynes is widely considered one of the UK’s most challenging racing tracks, is suitable for ages fourteen and over comprises of eleven corners, and consists of hairpins, chicanes and an uphill straight.

We built the 375m ‘North Circuit’ in 2003, a bespoke junior karting track for ages 6-15 years old, expertly designed to be challenging, with some technical corners but is also the perfect environment to learn and improve technique before graduating onto our International Circuit.
