The light has just turned green. Time to speed off in your kart, a mini Formula 1 car in which you will feel just like our very own Spanish champion, Fernando Alonso.
Strap your helmet on tightly, for bends, chicanes and bridges all wait you. There are cars for the whole family. Different levels of kart ranging from vehicles for the tiniest of tots to those more suited to the experienced driver, competition or even Formula karts which are similar to racing cars and capable of reaching dizzying speeds. So, if a few leisurely laps of one of the many courses to be found throughout the coast are not enough for you, your best bet is to take part in one of the races organised by the Karting Associations and compete against friends or other children of the same age. And a good option for those who do not wish to not drive but are keen to experience that feeling of speed is to hire a two-seater model and hurtle round the track with partner. Twice the fun.
However, all that tension and adrenaline mean that a visit to the pits will be required in the shape of a trip to the cafeteria. We can’t just race around the track all day long. So, a tea-time snack for the little ones and refreshments for the adults are in order. Pit stop over. The right light is about to change.
