On arrival at an off road dirt buggy site, all drivers will receive equipment and a full and thorough safety briefing. You will be instructed on how the grass karts work and how to stop them. Clear instructions for the rules of the dirt track and what the different colored flags signify.

Many of the buggy tracks will have different formats, a timed trial with one buggy starting before another – similar to a cat and mouse chase. Other off road tracks will start in a line, whilst others will have a staggered start.

Off Road Kart Racing
A common question we are always asked will be, can we have the entire group on the track at one time – without exception no! Most tracks will have 2 dune buggies on a track at any one time; some will then introduce more depending on the group’s dynamics. A few sites will have up to six on a track but these are few and far between.
Your health and safety is paramount, an off road mud buggy has open wheels, i.e., the wheels are not guarded like a go kart, without careful driving will cause the buggies to literally bounce in all directions. Of course you are in a full safety roll cage but always remember motor sport is dangerous.
