Our kart school program emphasizes that karting should be both fun and challenging for racers of any level. Kart school instructors lead students between classroom lessons and hands-on driving instruction. Students can learn to apply what they have learned in the classroom to the track immediately, creating an ideal learning environment.
Early on in the day, kart school students are introduced to the basics of karting competition. The workshop begins with an early morning orientation. Kart school instructors then familiarize students with the mechanics and design of the karts they will use in karting competition. The group is then brought to the classroom to learn the meaning of each racing flag, and basic karting rules.
Following the first classroom instruction, kart school students are brought to the track and get behind the wheel for the first time. Staying at a slow, constant speed, the group becomes familiar with the kart, and learns the proper line of driving.
Kart school instructors then teach the group to become comfortable with braking. Each student practices to control the kart while braking during turns. After braking instruction, kart school students are brought up to a slightly higher speed, and begin to practice passing on straight-aways.
Again, kart school students learn to adjust to a slightly higher driving speed, and practice controlling the kart with other racers close by. Instructors also begin to emphasize staying in correct racing line at higher speed, points of braking and acceleration, and open passing.
As the day winds down, kart school instructors take students on a walk of the track to review correct racing line and discuss ways of reading the track surface. Kart school students then pair up for longer, high speed sessions, and to practice correct driving changes. Instructors also work individually with each student on difficult turning corners.
The kart school day ends with drivers teaming up to experience LeMans Start for the first time. Students also learn to change drivers during competition, and practice the lessons learned during kart school in a real-time racing situation.
