It's not exactly Formula 1 but get behind the wheel of a go-kart and you'll certainly feel like you're ready to give Lewis Hamilton a run for his money. Go-karting is one of those sports that turns perfectly rational, relaxed human beings into speed-hungry, stop-at-nothing (apart from when the marshals tell you to!) people who want to WIN! The buzz of racing your buddies as you hurtle round a circuit beset by tricky corners and tight bends is fantastic fun. Revolution Karting in the East End is the only outdoor course in London and boasts 650 metres of track and has karts that reach a very nippy 50 mph. They also offer a good choice of different packages. You can jump in a kart and individually race, gather a group of mates and compete in a Mini Grand Prix or challenge your colleagues as part of their organised corporate events. The circuit is floodlit and open till late, making for a speedy alternative to after-work drinking. Incidentally, stay off the beers if you want to get on the track at all.
