To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many off-road leisure facilities are available for the use of mini moto users for recreational purposes. (139676)

I have been asked to reply.

It is impossible to quantify the number of off-road leisure facilities available for use by mini-bikes in the UK. Anecdotal evidence indicates that a number of commercial kart tracks (there are around 100 such tracks in the UK) are offering their facilities for such use. However safety concerns mean the Auto-Cycle Union (ACU)—the national governing body for motorcycle sport—will not licence such tracks and therefore ascertaining how many offer such services is simply not possible.
