Introduction -

The driver must be fully instructed & familiarised with the gokart & the terrain, & supervised at all times by a responsible adult or suitably trained instructor.

The terrain must be carefully chosen so as not to cause any possible risk to the driver or others.

The wheels of the kart must not leave contact with the ground or the gokart be put in the situation where there is any possibility of the gokart rolling over. Avoid tight turns.

The top speed of the gokart must be governed to the terrain, age & ability of the driver.


This is recommended to be less than 30mph.

DO NOT OPERATE THE GOKART WITH LONG HAIR, LOOSE CLOTHING, SCARVES ETC.

The driver must fit the gokart properly within the protection of the frame & must be able to operate the controls fully, without hindrance.

The driver should be fitted properly within the seat harness & the wrist retainer straps must be used whilst the gokart is in operation.

It is good practice whilst operating off road vehicles to have ready access to a suitable fire extinguisher, first aid & reliable communication.

Suitable protective clothing such as padded overalls, sturdy foot wear, gloves & an approved helmet with eye protection must be worn at all times.

The gokart is not designed to tow or carry passengers.


Gokarts must not be run together.
