Nearly every Formula one driver started off racing go karts – who knows, you might be next to live the dream. Kart racing is a great way for juniors to learn the disciplines of motor sport and gain driving experience in a safety-conscious environment.
The Brighton Karting Championship runs throughout the year on a monthly basis. To join the championship each child must be classed as ‘safe to race’ by one of our track managers. We have 2 ways of joining the championship:
- Sign up to our Karting Induction class which consists of 3 hours intense training or
- We can monitor your child over a longer period of time at our ‘Arrive & Drive’ sessions. This option is available for children with previous racing experience.
All Brighton Karting Championship races are held on the full 800m outdoor race circuit. Plenty of viewing areas for parents so you won’t miss any of the action or ‘proud parent’ moments as your child races towards the chequered flag!
The Brighton Karting junior race induction is a great place to start your journey into the racing world. Our qualified instructors will teach each child the mechanics of driving, including how to take turns bend by bend, and overtake with the correct use of drive lines.
In order to gain a Brighton Karting race licence, the children will need to satisfy the instructors that they are ‘safe to race’. Passing a simple but important examination, and having consistent timed laps, are the final steps to completing the induction.
We recommend all children take part in at least one of our Arrive and Drive sessions before taking on the induction.
