Karting is a sport, few know about, but is one of the most exciting and safe motorsports for kids ages 5-14. Karting is considered by many racers to be “the purest form of motorsports”. Many professional race car drivers in Indy, Formula 1, and Nascar, started (and still continue) to race karts.
*Note: these go karts are not your typical amusement park, boardwalk type bumper cars, but actual, precision competition go karts built for youngsters. Instruction and driving are provided in a safe, fun, environment.Through KidzSpeed Academy, student drivers and parents alike will experience the “in’s” and “out’s” of racing and everything that comes along with it. Safety, fun, driver comfort and building a strong foundation to share with family are the focus of this program. Both classroom and on track techniques are designed to accommodate first time drivers.
