We will be operating a 3 day Driver Development Program at North Star Raceway August 6,7 & 8 (Tuesday – Thursday)
This program will operate 9AM – 4PM daily, with a short break for lunch.

  1. Designed to help new and developing drivers increase their confidence and speed.
  2. Technical driving sessions in class and on the track. Lead follow, proper braking, apex orientation, vision etc….
  3. Technical sessions on karts set-up and maintenance. Get the most out of your chassis and engine.
  4. Jr divers must have adult parental supervision.
  5. You must have your own kart and driving equipment.
  6. Cost is $300.00 for 3 days
  7. Open to all drivers that belong to a Western Canadian Karting club. – no additional non CKRC fees.
  8. Open to both Jr and Sr drivers – Briggs engines.

Due to the speed and age differences we cannot incorporate Bambino (Kid) karts into this program.
This program will include a hands-on technical session for parents conducted by Junior Dad Gil Altamirano. Gil will run through the fundamentals of kart preparation with information that most newcomers to the sport will find very useful.
The most benefit would be for the newer drivers, however there will be much information that will be shared that will certainly benefit more experienced drivers too.
This program is open to licensed drivers from outside Calgary as well. We will operate this program in the counter clockwise direction.
