stag go karting
send us our requirements and we'll build the ultimate stag!
prepare to party!
Perhaps one of the greatest boys sports ever, it combines speed, power, bravery, dexterity, individual skill and the chance to establish some stag weekend credibility with your fellow racers!
what is it?
At the risk of stating the obvious, it’s the closest you can get to mini motor racing, and it’s certainly a stag weekend banker
. All proper go karting takes place on dedicated, quality tracks which will vary in size, width, length, style and features. There’s also the big difference between outdoor and indoor, the outdoor tracks generally being longer and more seasonally affected. However you should try the track in Vilnius
in winter with a little snow and ice – that’s a lot of fun!
After the track it’s about the karts, these again will vary with each track on speed and engine capacity, most tracks opt for single engine go karts while some occasionally have twin engine beasts that can push the speed up a little. The number of karts out on track at any one time will vary with each track, according to the size of the track and safety. The standard of karting is high throughout Europe
so it’s rare to get a poor track. What’s important is giving it the right amount of time and getting the stag weekend slots right, the way to do that is to give us enough notice and make the optimum selections for you. We’ll have thrill seeking groups out karting most weekends of the year.
who can go kart?
Almost anybody. In some cases height and weight restrictions may apply. So if any of the lads in the stag party are likely to stretch the scales let us know. Obviously the heavier guys are likely to go slower, but if they’re too heavy they may not get out of the blocks at all! If anyone in the stag party is above 18 stone it’s worth checking! Similarly because of the low centre of gravity of the go karts being too tall can potentially be a hazard, so if you have anyone in the stag party who is very tall let us know. Other standard restrictions as you would expect canbe down to age (eg to young) or health (if in doubt always check with a doctor), and of course you have to be sober!
where can we go karting?
, the UK
and of course the USA
. Ireland has several great tracks while the UK is littered with them. Most capital cities in Europe have a couple but the trick is to know which ones and what slots are best, that’s where StagWeb’s connections and expertise are second to none at putting on the optimum stag go karting session.
what’s the standard go karting equipment?
Typically you’ll be issued with:
- a go kart (shared)
Variations will apply with different go kart tracks.
how long does a go karting session take?
In our experience this all depends on your group size and it’s all about getting the best quality event for you so we’ll tailor it to suit you best. Traditionally a 60 minute track slot is the most popular but for larger groups, time allowing, we extend this by 30 minute increments. We have prepared go karting tracks for clients for hours, half-days, full days and even stag nights – where the go karting is complemented by catering and some post-karting beers! Add another 15-20 minutes for pre-start check in / change and introduction and half-an-hour either side for transport and for most stag groups you will be looking at between 2.5 and 3 hours.
how do I plan a go karting session for a stag party?
That’s the easiest of the lot, let us know. Our advice – book early to get the best slots. Don’t start too early if you’re going to have a big night the night before, late morning is usually a winner. If you’re only doing karting it doesn’t matter what time you do it but remember you can’t drink beforehand, you have to be sober otherwise the track will not let you race and it will be too late to cancel. On the other hand go karting makes for a great combination activity, e.g. a stag day combining go karting with paintball
or clay shooting is very hard to beat and excellent value. And lastly, don’t forget the transfers to and from the karting – if you need these we can easily make it all part of a hassle free, highly enjoyable stag weekend
