Our track is inspected by the N.K.A on a regular basis and all documentation is available upon request.
Rye House is an outdoor experience. We run in most weather conditions, with exception of extreme weathers such as ice & snow. Our race directors will assess weather conditions frequently each day and if the track is deemed unsafe, drivers will be contacted to reschedule.
We recommend bringing a change of clothes for all events, even in the more favourable conditions.

Rye House boasts a range of great hospitality services:
- Our diner – serving hot & cold food and beverages, including their licenced bar! We advise hydration and light snacks prior to our events as you may risk nausea over-consuming prior to your drive. Alcohol cannot be consumed prior to any driving or activity here at Rye House.
- Private meeting rooms bookable at request.
- Toilets & shower facilities. Guests using our showers will be required to bring their own towels and toiletries.
All our karts are highly adjustable, so we can accommodate people of all shapes and sizes.
- Bambino (5+) 106cm
- Cadet (6+) 128cm
- Junior (8+) 133cm
- Adult (16+) 152cm
Maximum requirements are harder to provide as driver build may vary and comfort may decrease above a general range.
Typically, on our Junior track, a driver at 128cm will have outgrown the ability to drive a Bambino.
Junior karts can accommodate drivers 6ft+ however around this height comfort may decrease.
Adult karts can accommodate drivers up to approximately 6’8 however around this height comfort may decrease.
Maximum weight is usually not prioritised over driver height and shape as this typically determines a driver’s ability to use our karts over the weight figure itself. If you are unsure, please contact us via phone/email and we can discuss your options, we can even arrange you to come down before booking an event for a fitting.
