We attended during our weekend away we visited here. Being from the UK we didn’t know how professional the setup would be as you hear about these types of businesses that are set up in holiday resorts and safety/hygiene aren’t a priority as long as they are making cash… Luckily, this isn’t one of those places.
We were picked up from our hotel and driven in a bit of a party bus to the circuit. Once there we chose our package, the only slight gripe I would have is the cost of the packages, we opted for the 50€ each package which gave us a 6 minute practice, a 6 minute qualifying and a 10 lap race including a trophy presentation at the end. I would suggest it is probably 10€ too much for what you get. It would perhaps be better if every driver got a free photo rather than being charged extra and/or a drink/sandwich. That being said, it wasn’t massively over priced, and it didn’t ruin the day out, and we didn’t need to get a 10€ taxi either way…
Drinks were very reasonably priced considering where you are. They could quite easily rip you off for 3/4€ for a soft drink, instead you get a decent bottle for €1.80 which you would be happy to pay in any bar along the coast. We didn’t eat but food prices looked reasonable also.
On to the racing, which is where this place really stood out. We made our way in to the briefing room which was very clean and tidy and we were given a locker to put our valuables in, clean balaclavas for hygiene purposes and chose our helmets. We then made our way in to the karts. All of the karts seemed to be maintained to a good standard. The staff make sure you’re safely buckled in and off you go.
To any racing fans, the big screen is a massive plus point. To be flying around the track and see where you are on the leaderboard and your last lap times etc is a massive bonus, the only negative being that if your group is all racing, you don’t get chance to take a photo of it!
The track is well maintained, the surface is good and markings are clearly visible, and the staff go out every few sessions to push the boardings that have been knocked about.
The final part of a great experience was the staff. They were all so massively friendly and welcoming, it was a nice atmosphere to be in.
We will definitely be back next time we’re in Benidorm! Thanks again!
