This is a completely bonkers driving activity that is definitely not for the Penelope Pitstops among you! For hens that fancy some complete motorsport madness these babies will bring you some very alternative manoeuvres. Still very safe, with a roll cage, low chassis and wide axel structure, the Powerturn Buggies are rather more primitive in their steering design than karts with a steering wheel but the principle and results are ingenious. Think Mad Max meets Whacky Races, where two of you (though you can go it alone) are in a vehicle which is directed by you each pulling a lever instead of a steering wheel, which power two engines and there are no pedals either, though what you will need is great communication between you; yes generally a lot of yelling and dictatorial expletives! What this achieves is amazing on-the-spot spins and brilliant wheelies at a low speed but with a high adrenalin rush.
If you do go solo the pace is a little quicker and you’ll be flying around at up to 30mph – not sounding fast enough? Well trust us, these are often speedier round the track than conventionally steered vehicles, with far greater movement, acceleration and cornering abilities. Handbrake turns have nothing on this and that out-of-control feeling soon becomes addictive….what do you mean that’s normal?!
