we are racers


The GKL community is a fantastic environment for young drivers to begin their motorsport journey. Our friendly team are always on hand to provide reassuring, personalized and data-driven driver feedback.

Our bespoke karts are developed and rigorously tested to ensure equal performance. Drivers succeed based on their talent, not on how much they spend on their equipment.


Our racers come from all backgrounds. We’re proud to have 22% (twice the industry average) female drivers and we welcome every young racer with open arms.

In 2022, we partnered with Award winning actor, producer, director, and musician Idris Elba to launch SpeedAcademy, a program to find, nurture and develop future racing talent from communities currently under represented in the world of motorsport.


When Rosie was 6, she wanted to try karting. We stumbled upon GKL, which had training sessions perfect for beginners.

They supplied everything and the karts' speed was adjustable for safety, making Rosie feel confident. She loved it and couldn't wait to go back.

Now at 7, she knows becoming a top racer might be tough, but she's curious about motorsport's engineering side.

As a family, buying a kart isn't feasible for us. But GKL offers a cost-effective and eco-friendly way to get into karting. It's been an ideal introduction to the sport for Rosie, whether she pursues it as a hobby or more seriously.

The training and races at GKL are top-notch, and the staff are really supportive. Plus, the atmosphere is always friendly. It’s a great community where everyone enjoys the racing.

All the best from the May Family.
