Junior Race School – For Beginners and Novices,

If you’re a novice driver, learn how to drive fast and race hard in a safe and controlled environment with our experienced karters at Junior Race School.

We have a wealth of experience in the world of motorsport, with many of our staff having raced and won championships themselves! Now we want to share our expertise with you!


Junior Race School is held on the second Monday of the month (and if fully booked the following Wednesday as extra capacity!) with signing on at 6:00pm  and should finish at around 8:30pm. Price for the event is £20* which makes Junior Race School one of our best value events.

For every event, we split all drivers into groups depending on their currently ability where they have three sessions of 7 minutes to try and develop their skills.

Before anyone starts to drive, we will walk the track with the drivers, looking at each corner and how to approach it. Our team will give each group top tips and advice inbetween sessions on what they need to do to drive better. We have a great success rate of over 80% of driver making notable improvements and setting personal best laptimes each race school!

Race School is the first step on our ladder of junior events. Once a driver achieves a lap time of 19.5 seconds or faster we would invite them to progress to the next stage which is Junior Kart Club and eventually the Mr Karting Sprint Series!
