Awesome family fun on the drift carts at Velocity Carts. Everyone on the carts loved it, good instructions and a good area for those who just wanted to watch. Highly recommended family activity.

Thanks for writing a review and it was great to see your extended family enjoying some blokart action. I love the "fun, safe and environmentally friendly" comment and can see that popping up on some marketing material! Thanks for your wonderful endorsement. See you again....More
