    Survivor guide: Go-karting

    Survivor guide: Go-karting

    Go-karting with friends and family can provide hours of exciting and energy-filled afternoons. It is a popular exercise for birthday parties, stag dos and general days out with friends.

    But if safety practices are not adhered to when driving a go-kart, these occasions can be marred by serious personal injury. All go-karting companies are responsible for ensuring your experience is as safe and enjoyable as possible, otherwise they may be liable to pay compensation.

    What can I do to reduce the risk of suffering slips, trips and falls while go-karting?

    • Always wear a helmet to protect yourself from head injury should your go-kart flip over.
    • Wear a seatbelt at all times. Due to the speed at which some go-karts can travel, serious personal injury could be suffered if you were to be involved in a go-karting accident without wearing a seatbelt.
    • Do not have any loose clothing that could be caught up in the go-kart’s engine or wheel shaft.
    • Always ensure you are accompanied by a go-kart expert and you are always in the company of adults.
