Hire Karts

Ellough Park Race Circuit offer the latest hire karts currently available in the UK.

The SODI GT5 GPL is certainly the most successful and effective rental kart on the market for both indoor and outdoor Karting. A new design of understated and rare elegance, reliability guaranteed by technical solutions tested on tracks all over the world, and ideal ergonomics and weight distribution give the SODI GT5 GPL a unique competitive edge.
