Summer 2015 sees our second anniversary in Milton Keynes, and it’s been a fantastic two years. I’m thrilled to say that Formula Fast is going from strength to strength, and even more thrilled to announce that we are still adding improvements to an already fantastic, award-winning experience.Read More›
Go ahead. Ask any keen karter their biggest gripe when rental kart racing, and you’re bound to get the same answer from the majority of your survey:
Personally, these are my favourite two words – it’s something we really pride ourselves on at Formula Fast, and it’s one of the reasons we are picked as the host venue for events like the BRKC (British Rental Karting Championship).Read More›

The sun is out, the thermal underwear has been put back into hibernation and the Formula 1 season has started.
This can only mean one thing – summer is on the way.
For most would-be drivers who are thinking of booking a karting event at this time of year, there is a choice to be made between going outdoors or indoors.Read More›
The Easter Holidays are just around the corner, and if you’re one of the many parents looking desperately for activities to keep the kids occupied over the next few weeks, help is at hand.
Formula Fast offer a range of speed-related activities for kids aged 8-14, whatever their prior experience in a kart. Parents can even join in the fun for a family session, although don’t be surprised if your youngster is showing you a thing-or-two after a few laps!

I took some holiday this February during a rare ‘quiet time’ at Formula Fast. Having been flat out since opening, we haven’t had much of a chance to rest, so not long after we’d finished hosting our first ever British Championship, I grabbed the opportunity to accept an invitation from our former owner-turned-Toro Rosso Chief Race Engineer Phil Charles, to spend a week with his family in Faenza in Italy.Read More›
I get so excited for Christmas… Mainly because the words “Christmas Karting” is a fantastically crisp example of alliteration and I’ll find every excuse to use it in some Xmas based promotion…

With Halloween closing in fast, it only felt appropriate that Emma & Alex tackle a pumpkin for the front reception desk…
So if you find yourself down at the track (which we hope you do) expect to be greeted by a spooky face… or maybe you’ll be greeted by Paul the Pumpkin instead!

If you’ve driven the track recently, you’ll know that the overall pace has shot up over the past few weeks – dishing out 33 and 34 second lap times to all accustomed drivers. Don’t believe me? Then come and have a drive…
As well as lap records, we’ve got a lot coming up over the the next couple of months – firstly, if you’d driven the Banbury track, you’ll remember the track-side TV – an effective way to show you live laptimes, or if you’re me, how quickly the guy behind is catching you up. Either way, it’s something you can expect to return at the new circuit very soon – perfect for our unlimited karting sessions.Read More›
