Formula Fats FestivalCalling all petrol heads, speed freaks and adrenaline junkies! Milton Keynes’ premier indoor karting track Formula Fast is excited to announce the first ever Formula Fast Festival to celebrate its second birthday in the city, taking place on 2 August from 11:30am.

The action-packed day has everything for fast-paced summer holiday fun, with special offers on karting sessions, multiplayer driving simulators, outdoor games and much more!

For the day of the Festival only, Formula Fast is offering 20 minute karting sessions for a discounted rate of £20. Get the need for speed and race around the 500 metre track at up to 50mph, screeching around the 12 technical corners to get your name on the top of the leaderboard!

Local celebrity Bailey McConnell has already been down to the track and set an impressive lap time of 34.898 seconds. He is now challenging fans to #BeatBailey for the chance to win a free family karting session - don’t forget to tweet your time with the hashtag #BeatBailey and tag @BaileyMac02 and @FormulaFast!

The team have also partnered with SimplyRace to provide amazing multiplayer driving simulators free of charge. Racers can experience world famous tracks with 3 panoramic screens for a fully immersive experience. Choose from a variety of vehicles, including a Lamborghini Gallardo or Formula One racing car, and feel the bumps of the track and the rumble of the engine with a high tech force feedback steering wheel.

There will also be plenty more activities and outdoor games, so remember to take a pit stop and refuel with the delicious hog roast and perfect pizzas on sale throughout the day.

Co-Owner Phil Stanley said “We are very excited about the Formula Fast Festival. We’re marking our second year in MK and want lots of people to enjoy the celebrations, so whether you are a seasoned fan or just want a day out with a difference, come down and see what the buzz is all about. It’s set to be a great event for all the family.”
