The GYG Karting facility is unquestionably one of the finest outdoor go karting circuits in the country, with two layouts available to utilise so that all levels of enthusiasm and skill can be accommodated. There are also two levels of go-kart available to use – single and twin engine vehicles, the latter of which are only really usable by the most experienced and confident driver.
The longer circuit is part of the official National Karting Championship Calendar which is contested by the F1 superstars of tomorrow. It is where the likes of Lewis Hamilton cut their teeth prior to breaking through to the big time. It comprises a mix of long straight, tight turns and high speed corners to really challenge even the best of them.
Championship events from the circuit are regularly broadcast on Sky Sports and S4C, as well as being exciting to attend first hand if you fancy a trip up to the circuit to see how the best in the business negotiate this notorious circuit themselves. It could help to provide some good pointers before you take to the track for yourself!
The next spectator event at the circuit takes place on the weekend of the 14th/15th/16th April when the Dragon Kart Club turns up. Arrive and drive will not be available on this weekend on account of this, but we’d highly recommend a trip up if you happen to be in the area and want to behold a spectacular championship event filled with young stars who are keen to make an impression.
In Summer 2016, we headed up to the GYG karting circuit to sample the karts and circuit for ourselves. The guys on-site were incredibly friendly and made us feel very, very welcome. The fine selection of food and refreshments in the spectacular on-site complex just added to the overall experience, with those not keen to get behind the wheel for themselves able to take advantage of a viewing area which provides great picture opportunities overlooking the circuit as well as the breathtaking countryside surrounding the Cerrigydrudion area.
You can catch a glimpse of what the arrive and drive experience consists of below in our video featuring the highlights of our experience at the GYG circuit on that day:
