April 2016 sees Scotkart celebrating 25 years of indoor karting in Scotland. Brothers Duncan and Stewart Matthews created the first permanent indoor karting circuit in Scotland at the Cambuslang location. The karting experience still trades today as one of the most popular and longest running indoor karting circuits in the U.K.
The Matthews put their success down to constant investment and innovation in the business over the years, and hopefully a great customer karting experience, which keeps customers coming back.
Many members of the team at Cambuslang have been with the company for many years, ensuring that customers enjoy a safe and exciting visit, with great service. This has been recognised by VisitScotland who have recently reawarded the centre a coveted 5 Star Activity Centre rating.
Scotkart Indoor Karting leads the way in karting innovation in Scotland, and has been imitated many times, but we keep working hard to ensure the original is still the best place for karting in Scotland.
Amongst the innovations:
First electronic timing in Scotland ( we now use Clubspeed software with exclusive Tag Heuer hardware from the Formula 1 sponsor).
First flyover in Scotland, and still the largest.
Working closely with Biz karts to produce what we feel is the best handling kart on the market ( we are sticking with petrol karts at the moment as battery powered electric karts are just too heavy to be any fun to drive, and having to replace the toxic batteries regularly is not very green ).
First all weather tactical laser tag arena in Scotland, which makes Scotkart the perfect choice for an action packed multi-activity day.
We look forward to welcoming you to ScotKart during our anniversary year for the best hi-octane kart experience in Scotland. Check out our Special Offer page for all the latest karting deals for groups and individuals.
