  • WANT TO BUILD YOUR OWN WOODEN GO-KART?

    We have seen from your feedback on Facebook that a lot of you look back with nostalgia at a time when you built your own wooden go-kart and the fun that you had doing it.  That's music to our ears because we have similar memories and that's what led to Christopher and me starting ATK.  Sadly times have changed and scavenging on the local dump for Silver Cross pram wheels is simply not possible, so launching the ATK was our way of offering today's children a chance to share in the fun that we had at their age. However some of you would still...

  • LOVED BY US.........

    Here at ATK Towers we come across a lot of companies and their products, some of which we think are brilliant.  So we've decided that it would be good to share these with you and have introduced a "Loved by us......" collection. Over the coming months we will be building a catalogue of businesses that we hope will be of interest to you.  We've started off with Go-Kart Party who organise children's parties; Tidy Books who make the most amazing bookcases for children; Feral, who make the perfect helmet for your children to wear on their ATK and Little Big Sports who supply a...

  • SO WHAT IS A RUN-FLAT TYRE?

    We are gradually changing our wheels over to being fitted with run-flat tyres.  So what is a run-flat tyre? In simple terms it's a wheel fitted with a proper canvas re-inforced rubber tyre (similar to the ones fitted to your car) but, instead of having an inflatable inner tube, it has a high-density foam insert:  So why are we doing this?  Because it gives you all of the advantages of a pnuematic tyre wheel with none of the hassles of keeping it blown up or dealing with punctures.  But don't confuse these wheels with the wheels on a lot of buggies.  They...

  • RICHMOND HILL SCHOOL - WACKY RACES

    Richmond Hill Primary School in Leeds have just completed the most amazing project.  The School purchased 20 ATK Wooden Go-Kart Starts from us, gave one to each class who were then challenged to "pimp" them, then put together a video showing what they had done.  They then had to perform several different tasks with their karts and the best performer was awarded the top prize.  Their efforts were stunning! Here are just a few of their videos:

  • TELL US WHAT YOU THINK

    For those of you who have bought your ATK on Amazon, you've always been able to rate both our karts and our service and many of you have done so.  We're proud to have a 5 star rating for both!  So we thought that we should give those of you who purchased from our ATK website the same opportunity and, as from this weekend, you can now do so.   All you have to do is go to the relevant product page and click on the "write a review" link and the rest is easy.  So please tell us what...
