Garden Karting is an open-air karting circuit in a privileged wooded setting in the heart of the Périgord. It offers an activity in the Dordogne that is both sporty and open-air and accessible to all ages. The site, welcoming and nestled in an exceptional green environment, promises a memorable afternoon of relaxation with family or friends only 45 minutes from our 4-star Dordogne campsite.
The karting circuit is designed to provide the best driving sensations. It is effectively sheltered from crosswinds by the vegetation along the runway. Versatile, it adapts to different levels of practice and offers a wide variety of maneuvers for beginners or advanced. With a length of 900 meters, it alternates between unevenness, chicanes, sprint lines and hairpin bends. This large karting track allows the organization of individual or relay races, and challenges for up to 40 drivers. The automatic timing system invites each driver to go beyond his limits by confronting the difficulties of the track. The 3 best times will be on the podium! Adrenalin and thrills guaranteed!
Karting is a leisure activity but also a mechanical sport that can be dangerous if the safety rules are not respected. For this purpose, Garden Karting has a fleet of karts for adults and karts for children. The adult karts are equipped with a 4-stroke Honda GX 270 cm³ engine with a power of 9 hp, and an 11-liter tank. The children’s karts have a 4-stroke Honda GX 160 cm³ engine with 4.5 hp and a 3-liter tank. They have the particularity of being equipped with an adjustable bucket seat and an adjustable column. Both adult and children’s go-karts feature the same quality construction, including a shaft cover and engine cover designed to protect the driver from all hot parts of the machine for safe riding.
In autumn, winter and spring, the Garden Karting opens on weekends, school vacations and during the week on reservation.
