Every petrol head dreams of leading the charge to the finish line during an intense, high octane race that will push them beyond their limits. Now, it is time to make your wildest auto dreams come true, as Karting Guide asks you to strap in and prepare for the ride of your life at Lichfield! Based on the site of a former airfield, our mammoth 450m circuit contains extra grippy tarmac- which means you won't need to worry about skidding when racing past your rivals and speeding round tight bends and hairpins. This is the ultimate racing experience. You would be a fool to miss out on it, so why not come visit us now?

Facilities on offer include parking, refreshments, toilets, spectator area, vending machines, catering and much more besides. It's no wonder that we are considered one of the best circuits in the region.

The Track

Across 450 metres of track, Karting Guide's Lichfield location undoubtedly delivers the thrills every petrol head urgently needs! Our two outdoor circuits are designed to push all drivers, both new and experienced, further beyond their limits than they ever thought they could go. With fast straights, sharp corners and heart pounding hairpins, these aren't for the faint of heart. Compete on either our "Family" or "International" circuit, and show us what you're made of on our 200cc Biz Karts or new fleet of adult Sodi race karts, which will hurtle you at top speeds to the finish line. Can you handle the fast and furious action?

Our outdoor location comes with spectator areas and car parking facilities. Light refreshments are available on the day.
