Karting TrackIf you fancy a bit of a thrill then head to Karting Finestrat - located just behind Carrefour Hyper-market and the La Marina Shopping Centre in Benidorm.
Set up on the mountain side with beautiful views over Benidorm, the 1km asphalted track is designed with plenty of bends and curves to test your skill behind the wheel....and there is also a separate specially designed children's circuit .

Boys racingIn 2011 they even filmed part of an episode of the ITV hit comedy series "Benidorm" here - series 4 episode 3. Madge was challenged to a 10 lap race around the track by mafia boss "Mr Pink", played by Melvyn Hayes - probably most remembered for his role as Gunner Gloria in "It Ain´t Half Hot Mum". Here a group of stags are wearing their pink t-shirts!

lads ready to raceIt is a fantastic group activity - especially popular with stag groups but hens also give the chaps a run for their money! When you arrive you have to sign a disclaimer and then go down to the track to pick out a helmet. We advise that you take your valuables out of shorts and leave them with either one of your group that aren't karting or put into a bag and leave behind the bar as things tend to go flying around the track as you swing around the bends.

You are given safety instructions on how to drive the kart before whizzing off, so don´t worry if you have never driven one before! In fact, you do not even need to have a driving license to be able to have a go! Start slow - you have a 10 minute warm up session but remember which number car you get in as the times are recorded by car number.

winners podiumAfter the warm up laps you have a break and they print off the times - then line you up accordingly at the start line ... which is why you need to remember which car you were in! At the end there is the podium presentation, with the winner feeling like a Formula 1 winner, spraying a bottle of bubbly over the runners up.

group enjoying lunchThere is a bar and restaurant with views across the track if you are just watching your other half, where you can enjoy a drink or even have some lunch afterwards.... if your stomach can take it after all that adrenalin rushing through your body!


multi limoBut the best bit is that they also offer FREE transportation from the Benidorm area for groups - imagine being picked up from your hotel or apartment in a blacked out stretch limo! We can arrange it all for you...
 
Also, for groups over 15 then the stag, hen or birthday boy/girl get to go for FREE if you book our special reader offer - see details below.

News Snippets

  • Olive Oil +

    Prices of olive oil are expected to rocket as crops in Italy and Greece have been hit by bad weather. In some areas harvests are down by 60% and subsequently, wholesale prices have doubled from €3,000 to €6,000 a ton! But the saving grace may be Spain, where they had a bumper olive harvest...
  • That's crackers! +

    The Royal Mint are launching a gift range which will include 58 select items, one of which is a 'gold' six pack of Christmas crackers costing £5,000! But obviously for that price you are getting slightly more than a paper hat and plastic spinning top - you may be lucky to pull open a 1oz gold bar, 24 carat bullion coin or even an 18 carat gold diamond necklace!
  • End of the road +

    The last Ford Mondeo is expected to roll off the production line by 2020. The popular family car was launched in 1993 and was the epitome of the middle classes - with nearly 130K sold in the first year. Last year only 55K were sold across the whole of Europe hence the decision to stop production. But Ford takes the top slot for the UK's best selling car - with the Fiesta and in 4th place, the Focus model.
  • DIY closures +

    DIY store Homebase is set to close approximately 60 stores over the next few weeks, threatening more than 1,000 jobs. The chain currently has 250 UK stores, employing around 12,000 staff.
  • Chewing gum +

    A estimated £60 million a year is spent cleaning chewing gum off pavements - a startling amount. More than 100,000 tons are consumed every year, but many have no idea that it contains plastic. Now supermarket chain Iceland have developed a a new product called 'Simply Gum' - which is made from a sap called chicle, extracted from a tree native to Central America.
  • Powder ban +

    The Government are considering restricting air passengers on carrying powders in hand luggage under a new security clampdown. Baby powder, cosmetics and coffee may be limited to no more than 12 ounces. Australia, New Zealand and America have already introduced the restrictions.
