What Can I Expect

This is your chance to go wheel-to-wheel extreme dodgem racing on the oval circuit in Birmingham in professionally prepared 1200cc saloon stock cars. With real life commentators, race marshals, pace cars and trophies for the winners, it really is grown up dodgem cars!

You will receive professional driving and safety tuition (as well as a few Dick Dastardly style racing tips) from the resident racing drivers and officials. Once you have been issued with overalls and a safety helmet, you will be introduced to the cars. They're equipped with a strengthening roll cage and steel bumpers all round, allowing you to race safely whilst taking the odd knock.

A three lap driving practice session will enable you to test the handling and grip levels of the car, as you drive round the 400 metre asphalt oval. Then it's time to test your skill and nerve as you take part in the first of two point scoring heats each lasting eight laps. Up to ten cars will race at once, with each driver battling to get to the front of the pack and take the chequered flag using fair means or foul.

Based on the points you score in the heats, the steward of the course will then place you into a Feature Final where you will pit your skills against drivers of a similar ability in an electrifying eight lap final challenge to determine the trophy winners.

All drivers taking part in these thrilling extreme dodgem races in Birmingham receive a personalised souvenir programme as a memento of their day, but will you be good enough to take home a winners trophy?

Very enjoyable, thought it was professionally organized and the whole family enjoyed watching. The people running the event were all very friendly. My only gripe was that the CD player did not work in my car!!!! Great fun....

Huge fun in spite of the appalling weather, sheeting down with rain all day. Made it even more fun with slippery track. Very well organised. I hope that health & safety do not ruin this brilliant event. Everyone should try this once in their life.
