Buggies are recreational vehicles that consist of 4 large wheels designed to travel over all types of terrain. They are relatively light and the power to weight ratio increases engine power considerably. The open frame is called a sandrail or tube-frame.
You can think of a buggy as a larger, off-road go-kart. They are easy to drive and tend to be automatic, which means that you can enjoy buggy racing without holding a current British driving license.
There are many buggy opportunities throughout the UK and we believe you should take the chance to experience some high speed action within a safe and controlled environment. Most buggies are powered by a 250 - 400cc Honda engine and they really are an amazing type of racing vehicle. Get your adrenalin pumping!
You may also hear buggies being referred to as dirt buggies because you will finish up covered in mud and soaked through. You are likely to embark on a demanding dirt track that includes water crossings and muddy ditches. It will all depend on the particular company you choose to visit and their facilities.
It is important that you are instructed on safety and driving techniques before your actual session begins. You should also be issued with the appropriate safety equipment, which includes:
- Crash helmet
- Waterproof overalls
We also advise you to wear appropriate, comfortable footwear that you don´t mind getting dirty and wet.
Buggy racing is ideal for:
- Corporate events
- Hen & stag parties
Alternatively, you can enjoy this exhilarating activity individually.
