The Experience named as finalist in Scottish Charity Awards - Kibble: Specialist services & support for young people facing adversity
Posted: May 1, 2017

Scotland’s only electric go-karting arena is in the running for a prestigious national award for its accessible karting and charitable programmes. Since opening in 2014, the leisure venue has been offering both mainstream and accessible motor sport at its Hillington Park arena.

The Experience has been shortlisted in the ‘Pioneering Project’ for its disabled access karting programme.  The programme allows people with limited mobility, learning difficulties, and others who have traditionally been excluded from motor sports the chance to take part through the use of specially designed karts.

All karts are driven by a dedicated Crew member, and enhanced toilet facilities, changing rooms and hoist help support and maximise the opportunities for people to enjoy the sport.

Lynsey McLean, General Manager at The Experience, said:

“It is a great privilege to be shortlisted for this national award. Now we need people to show their support and vote for us online.

“We work really hard as a team to make sure our visitors get the best service possible. Whether they are here to enjoy the electric go-karting, get something to eat at in the Academy Restaurant or attending a conference, our staff are the key to our success.”

The winners will be announced at a glamour awards ceremony in the EICC, Edinburgh on Thursday 22 June.
