Kid Kart

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.

No wheel-to-wheel racing takes place but lapping sessions provide the concepts of braking points, lines, handling, etc.

 

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.

> Basic driving skills 6:15 – dusk.

 

Try-A-Kid Kart Introductory Sessions

> 1 Wednesday evening per month (May – September) weather permitting

> $150 per night includes 1-on-1 instruction, GX35 Kid Kart and all Safety Gear

> Run by Kid Kart parents

> Opportunities for Kid Kart / Formula Kid Kart practice sessions for members.

 

Race weekends, Kid Karters have access to the track during the lunch break.

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.

> Each parent must volunteer to run one rental night.
