Tyke Racing the Ultimate Karting Experience
What is it?
Tyke Racing is bringing all the excitement and adrenaline of go-karting to Barnsley for the first time ever!
We have the latest generation of high-powered adult and kids’ electric karts, which are every bit as exhilarating as petrol-powered ones - with none of the noise or nasty smells.
We’ve created a purpose-built raceway complete with hospitality, conference and spectator viewing areas.
Our fleet of British-built EcoVolt karts is powered by high-tech Lithium batteries giving quick, smooth acceleration that can leave petrol-powered karts standing.
When is it?
Tyke Racing is open Tuesday to Sunday closed on Mondays except for bank holidays and by appointment - see opening times here and drivers can simply book in, turn up, jump in the driving seat and head out onto the track for the ride of their lives.
