WHEN DOES RACE ACADEMY RUN?
Race Academy sessions take place weekly on Sundays and Mondays at times convenient to family life and inline with after school club times. Attending weekly will provide the quickest path to progression and enable your child to form friendships with other like minded karters. However, you only pay for sessions you attend so missing a week or two is never a problem.

KARTING TUITION THAT’S TAILORED TO YOU
Every child learns to kart at a different pace and every family has different priorities to juggle, that’s why we offer a fully flexible karting tuition programme. With no long term commitment or contract, you decide how frequently you come to Race Academy, it could twice a week, once a week or even once a month.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FORM THE TUITION?
All karters will begin Race Academy as a Beginner. It is here we focus on the theory behind performance driving, the essentials of kart and track safety, track rules and the all important racing line. Every session will last approx 90 mins with 30 mins on track and 60 mins off track to include additional coaching, feedback and rest time.
Once the basics are mastered, it’s on to the Intermediate level. Here we broaden karters skills on track, increasing speed and race craft. Karters will be able to start evaluating their own driving, building on their learnings and putting in to practice overtaking and defensive strategies.
On achievement of the Intermediate licence, instructors will sign karters off as Advanced. The tuition in the Advanced level focusses on competitive karting, tactical manoeuvres, racing strategy, race starts and gets karters thoroughly prepared for competing in events. Karters with an Advanced licence are eligible to enter Race Academy League tournaments and the British Indoor Karting Championships.
