Friendly and competitive racing at one of Wales' highest quality Karting circuits
The only fully floodlit outdoor Karting circuit in Wales. Llandow Kart circuit is a 1050 meter adrenalin rush. With 9 corners and some fast straights, Llandow will provide excitement for the beginner while testing more experienced drivers and providing some excellent wheel to wheel racing.
An historic race venue, situated on the old World War II airfield in South East Wales. Post war, Llandow was once ranked along side the likes of the legendary Brooklands race circuit near Waybridge. Its history can be traced back almost 50 years to the very beginnings of Karting in Wales. Links with the Cardiff Kart Club, the St Athan Kart Club and Karting at the disused RAF Llandow can be found in the memoirs of Harry and Evelyn Maund and others.
Modern Racing in Wales
Modernised for the new millennium, Llandow is one of this country's newest and fastest growing kart racing tracks. Recently surfaced in part with high traction, quick draining, porous tarmac and technical to drive, the track demands compromises for most corners, making a good kart set-up critical to a quick lap time.
Llandow also has a race school. If you're just getting in to karting and want to improve your technique and lap times our experienced kart drivers can help. From the basics through to more advanced you will be taught by expert karting drivers and will learn a lot, just what you need to get started!
