Karting Finestrat is one of the most popular attractions for those who come here for weekend celebrations - in between the drinking and sunbathing. Located on the mountain side behind the La Marina shopping centre it is certainly the place to head for thrill seekers and adrenalin junkies.
The 1 km track has plenty of hairpin bends to test your skill behind the wheel, with everyone becoming an imaginary Lewis Hamilton as they hit the asphalt.
It is extremely popular with party groups – especially stag and hen parties… yes the girls like it almost as much as the boys!
It is great fun racing against your friends – you get a trial period to familiarize yourself with the car and track which is timed to work out the starting line-up for the race which follows. After a break, which you do need, everyone gets back into their cars and are positioned on the track –remember to check the number of the car you are in.
Each car has a sensor enabling the times to be automatically recorded… so no cheating! Once you have passed the chequered flag you return to the ‘pit’ and wait for the results. They even have a winners podium, where the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners take their positions, with each given a bottle of bubbly – which is often sprayed onto the opponents as per Formula 1.
Afterwards, you can have a drink, snack or even lunch in the newly refurbished restaurant – where they have have a fantastic bbq with an assortment of Spanish meats.There is also a children's area with an astroturf football pitch, inflatables and a bouncy castle - plus arcade games and even a bucking bronco!
