2018 Kid Kart Program (Preliminary)

Post by Hillbilly » Fri Apr 20, 2018 10:37 am

At long last, I have put together the 2018 Kid Kart Program (some of the dates may be subject to change).

What is Kid Kart?
Kid Kart is a safe, non-competitive introduction to karting for 5 - 11 year old kids. Instruction is provided; the program teaches kids how to navigate the track safely, the racing line is introduced, and kart control is emphasized.
• 3 Monday evenings per month (May – September) weather permitting.
• Karts on track from 5:00PM – 6:00PM.
• 15 minute track sessions (Kid Kart / Formula Kid Kart Alternate)
• BBQ supper break / discussion / track setup.
• Corner drills, braking, coaching 6:15 – dusk.
• Try-A-Kid Kart Introductory Sessions – 1 - 2 Wednesday evenings per month (May – August) weather permitting
o $105 per night includes 1-on-1 instruction, GX35 Kid Kart and all Safety Gear
o Run by Kid Kart parents
o Opportunities for Kid Kart / Formula Kid Kart practice sessions for members.
• Race weekends, Kid Karters have access to the track during the lunch break.

What’s new for 2018?
• Mandatory Neck Protection
• Kids up to 11 can take part in Formula Kid Kart as an alternative to racing.
• Parent involvement at Kid Kart Try-A-Kart is mandatory – there will be a schedule.
o Each parent must volunteer to run one rental night.
o Each parent must volunteer to assist at one rental night.
o Running / Assisting on a rental night takes priority over getting your kid into his kart.
• The last night of the year will be run as a Time Attack.

2 Classes of Kid Karters:

• Any child 5 – 7 year old can take part in this tried and true run group.
• Kid Kart chassis with a Honda GX35 or GX35 clone 4 stroke engine.
