Discovery of Torreilles karting
You are no doubt familiar with video game karting, but have you ever tried to make it life-size? During a camping holiday in Torreilles, with family or friends, test your endurance during a session at open-air karting in Torreilles, in the Pyrénées-Orientales.
Karting, a real fun sport
In 1956, an American mechanic built a machine with a lawnmower engine: the first kart had just been invented. Today, karting is the ideal activity to fill up on thrills and learn about motorsport. Accessible to the whole family and whatever its size, it can be practiced alone or in a group by doing a frantic race with family, couple or friends.
No bodywork, no gearbox, just worry about one thing: get around the circuit as fast as possible, skilfully negotiating each tight bend or you risk biting the dust. The kart should be suitable for the height of the person sitting in it, who should wear a helmet for protection.
Karting de Torreilles: a leisure activity suitable for children
At Mas Dels Capellans, near the Mediterranean, the Torreilles karting track is accessible to everyone all year round. For each age and each track, its adapted kart. Children from 3 years old will start in electric kart on a 200-meter track. The 120 cc petrol kart is made for 7-9 year olds and the 270 cc kart for 9-14 year olds. The two-seater kart is intended for children from 5 years old, for an introduction to driving with an experienced instructor. The adult kart is for 14 years old and over.
To teach your children to anticipate the trajectory and to brake at the right time, the flight school provides instruction by a state-certified flight instructor on the 4 circuits available. The training is available to 7-16 year olds every Wednesday (excluding school holidays).
A thrilling activity
Adult kart races are subject to electronic timing. The modular track is FFSA category 1 approved, from 587 meters to 481 meters with 4 technical tracks for beginners as well as for more experienced pilots. Get behind the wheel and negotiate hairpin turns for exhilarating sensations of speed and blast the stopwatch. After your race against the clock, come and quench your thirst on the terrace of the club house.
For a bachelor party or a bachelorette party, come and do some tests to experience the thrills, to do a runway baptism to make a child’s dream of the future groom come true.
