Lydd Kart Circuit

Established in 1993, Lydd Kart Circuit is the fastest for Go Karting in Kent and one of the fastest in the Country. The 1040 meter track is very popular with drivers, whether they be Owner/Drivers racing their own karts or Arrive & Drive adult customers using our Hire Karts. The current layout has existed since an extension was added in 1996, while our Junior Circuit measures approx. 500m and is ideal for Kids and for Birthday Parties.

The owner, James Clarke, took control of the Circuit in February 2011 and is investing in his vision of the future of Lydd as a Karting venue.

James was a very successful racer here at Lydd, while his son, Cameron, currently races Senior Rotax with Team Clarke Karts.

James is very passionate about Lydd and Karting, so the Circuit is in safe hands, and the improvements to the whole venue will continue to be ‘work in progress’. A new storage building for the Hire Kart fleet has been completed, creating a much better base to work from, while the next phase of James’ original plan to resurface the track, has now been done, and we are very excited.

We run an Independent Race Meeting on the 2nd Sunday of each month, providing Owner/Drivers with the chance to go Club Racing once a month in a friendly family atmosphere. These meetings cater for kids from 5 years old (in Bambino karts) and then range through various Cadet classes to Junior Subaru, Mini Max, Junior Max, ProKarts, Rotax Max & Rotax Max 177 .
