How fast can you go? We're about to find out with this adrenaline fuelled birthday activity in Barcelona. Forfeits for the slowest could add to the mix.
Your group will be picked up outside your hotel and taken to a large 600m Barcelona Outdoor Go Karting track, about 30 kilometres outside Barcelona. The journey actually takes you past the Circuito de Catalunya Formula One track to get you in the mood.
Once there, you will be racing twice, 7/8 circuits a race. The main objective is to get the fastest lap time (a bit like Formula 1 qualifying), so remember your car number when you get the timesheet at the end.
In between the Go Karting races, you can sip a beer on the terrace and heckle the guy with the slowest lap time. Whoever gets the fastest lap time can spray their celebratory beer on the winner's podium - a good photo opportunity.
Previous groups have said that the karts are faster than any they have tried back home. Also, they have a novel way of getting you started, as there is no ignition on the karts - you are push started from behind.
When you go Go-Karting during the weekend is up to you, as flight times vary between groups, we operate a flexible timetable to suit you.
Add on nightclub entrance, free when booked with accommodation.

Pick up/drop off is from your accommodation or another convenient meeting point in central Barcelona. The karting track is a 45 minute drive outside Barcelona.
Please ask for the price for 3 races instead of 2. In August, it is usually too hot for outdoor karting. We recommend you check out one of our water based activities. Why not try our private yacht charter, sailing cruise, or jet skiing adventure?
