We may be biased, but go karting is great fun! We want everyone who steps into a go kart on our track to have an enjoyable and safe experience with us, so we have restrictions about what can and what can’t be worn.
For those who have never been go karting at Rogue Leisure before, here’s what you need to know.
Race suits and helmets
Our equipment hire charge covers the rental of a race suit, helmet, balaclava and gloves. If you have your own racewear, you are very welcome to use it. To ensure safety is maintained, we will check your garments are suitable and meet all safety requirements.
The most important thing to remember is to be comfortable in what you are wearing under a race suit. Jeans or joggers and a t-shirt are ideal as these won’t be restrictive. As our track is indoors, and the race suits are quite thick, it can get warm, so avoid layering.
The type of shoes you wear are important
If your shoes are likely to fall off easily or restrict your use of the go kart pedals, then they are not suitable for go karting and could cause your feet to be injured. We don’t want to stop anyone from enjoying go karting on our track, but if you turn up in heels, any type of sandal or open-toed shoes, then we cannot allow you to step into a kart.
Trainers are perfect.
A few other safety restrictions to think about
- Ensure your hair doesn’t restrict your vision and tie long hair back
- Remove jewellery that could get caught on something, such as earrings, necklaces and bracelets
- Remove scarves and neck ties to ensure they don’t get stuck in the kart
- There’s no fancy dress on the track – we’re happy for you to arrive and leave dressed up, but a race suit must be worn when racing
