Training is essential for any child who wants to race karts safely and successfully. The Kart School will give your youngster a good start in the competitive world of motorsport.

Racing line, braking point, turning in, hitting the apex and getting the power down at the optimum point. These are the techniques that every successful driver needs to know. Awareness in traffic, knowing overtaking opportunities and passing successfully are other techniques that are covered by Kart Training.

Structured tuition is offered and is personalised for each driver. A 160cc kart, helmet, race suit, gloves, neck collar, and rib protector are all provided, as is the use of the National Circuit.
