The Glasgow Warriors Visit Larkhall Circuit

Bringing the squad along for some post-lockdown team bonding in 2021, the Glasgow Warriors caught the racing bug after a few laps on our track and have been regular visitors ever since. A competitive bunch that is used to the intensity and exhilaration of being out on the rugby pitch, they are always on the lookout for their next adrenaline-filled team experience and found exactly what they were looking for here at Larkhall Circuit.

We spoke to George Horne and Stafford McDowall about their intense on-track battles.

Previously racing on indoor tracks, scrum-half George Horne quickly realised that outdoor karting is a whole different ball game. Finding it to be a far more realistic representation of the high-speed racing you see on TV, it didn’t take him long to get hooked on the thrill of racing outdoors.

“The speed of the karts makes it a lot more fun and also a lot trickier, as you really need to think about braking zones. The larger track also gives a great mix of technical sectors but also some nice long straights which are great for the lighter guys like myself. I think the higher speed and longer track make it a far more realistic representation of racing like we see on TV, and is a major reason why we’ve been back to Larkhall Circuit so often.”

Always looking forward to their next session out on track, the Glasgow Warriors wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a day out at Larkhall Circuit to anyone looking for a thrilling experience. 

“We’ve all really enjoyed our time spent at the track and would urge anyone looking for their next group activity to try out Larkhall Circuit. I think the first experience of that adrenaline-filled competitive environment got us all pretty much hooked and we’ve been coming back regularly ever since. It’s been a great way to spend time with our teammates out of the rugby environment and it usually becomes the talk of training for the next few days as everyone’s still buzzing.”
