With valentine’s day just around the corner, it’s that time of year again where couples all around the UK come together to show their love, affection and appreciation for each other.

But aren’t we all bored of the lovey-dovey candlelit dinners that we feel obliged to book each year? Have we not got sick of the flowers, chocolates, love hearts and teddy bears? How about doing something different to the norm, something a little more extreme, something awesome? How about taking your partner on a date to the longest go karting track in the UK?

Former TOWIE star Ricky Rayment thought it’d be a good idea for a date; and he was right.

On the 26th January, Ricky took Nancy May Turner (Ex on the Beach Star) to Capital Karts for an action packed first date. The reality TV duo got dressed up in full racing gear and helmets and enjoyed the afternoon racing each other around our 1050m track.

The pair seemed to have a really great time on the track as well as spending some time together off the track in-between laps. Ricky took the race win but Nancy doesn’t seem to want to admit it, maybe next time!

Ricky isn’t having any of it though. Not too competitive are they!?

If you and your partner fancy trying something new, something a little wild and exciting then we highly recommend giving us a call. You’ll both love it.

Single? Perhaps you’ve not been struck by cupids’ arrow just yet. Not to worry, forget about dates and think about your mates. There’s nothing better than an action packed day out with your friends to take you away from the loved up couples.
