These karts were recently featured in a ‘Top Gear' magazine article written by Jeremy Clarkson. This sums up his impression and is a direct quote from the article: ‘Without wishing to sound completely spoiled, I've got a Ferrari in the garage and yet, give me the choice this afternoon of going for a blast in that, or going for a spin on the Hoover-powered bedspring and there's no contest. The BoCart wins every time.'
An initial driver briefing is followed by a couple of laps following a pace vehicle to give the drivers a feel for the course. The group is then split into groups (ideally 4 groups of 4, but obviously this depends on numbers), who will then compete against each other in a full on 1 hour endurance race. The aim of the event is for each team to accrue as many laps as possible within the 1 hour time frame. Each group will be in charge of how they handle driver changeovers (which is where the tactics come in). Generally your arms will feel like they are about to drop off after about 4-5 laps!
13hp Honda GX390 4-stroke engine, rear suspension, oil clutch, disc brakes, ATV type tyres, and a 3-point safety harness.
- The activity will last approximately 1¼ - 1½ hours
- If the conditions are too wet to run the event at an enjoyable level it will be swapped for quad biking.
Located on 150 acres of undulating woodlands, this top quality paintball site has over 10 different game zones. Transform from mild mannered gent into a cold-blooded mercenary as you track your mates down and attempt to defeat them with a hail of savagely aimed pellets.
Groups will begin their session by getting kitted up in full camouflage gear and given a full site safety briefing. After the formalities are out of the way, it’s off into the danger zone to begin your ruthless rampage.
The playing zones on offer are truly outstanding and comprise of villages, bridges, castles, bunkers and a Wild West zone that features a church, saloon and undertakers! A selection of different games will be played throughout the session - approximately 8-10 games for a full day and 5-6 for a half day. Some of the sessions include:
Bridge over the River Kwai:
You have a multitude of options open to you on this one. Do you go over the high bridge or the low bridge? Through the pillbox or the spider tunnels? Only your cunning will see you through safely!
Storm the Fort:
All you have to do is collect the pieces of a 32 foot square jigsaw puzzle. The problem? The parts are scattered around the outside walls of a 3 storey castle manned by your opponents! Assemble the puzzle in the quickest time and walk off the field as victor!
Close Quarter Combat Battlefield:
Ever been to a paintball site where there was nowhere to hide? That certainly won’t be a problem here: there are so many places for people to hide that it can take a what seems like a lifetime to weed out the opposition! Participants will defend their own bunker and attempt to catch the opposition’s flag before they have their own flag taken!
A tricky 4 acre maze where you can see the opposition but can’t actually get to them! As a team you have to find your way in, capture the flag and find your way back out unharmed.
150 two ton bales block your path. There are 32 tags: one in each stack of bales. All you have to do is gain position of each bale stack, plant your team tag to claim position and then hold out until the final whistle blows!
Throw yourself into some authentic warfare action as you make your way over the 2000 sand bags that form this low level playing zone. Your heart will be pounding as you wait for the command to go over the top and face your enemy; can you handle the pressure?
Jungle Village Assault:
Put yourself in the thick of the action as you find yourself in a village with 30 plus buildings and a four room main hall in the centre. All you have to do is find the movement sensitive ammo box and take it to the enemy’s base... but don't forget, if you trigger the mercury switch, the siren will sound and you are on your way to watch from the elimination zone!
