The motivation for the course is to provide the following:
Most top class racing drivers began their careers in Karts and learnt their fundamental skills in these machines. What most people overlook is that many continue to train in Karts even when competing in the top echelons of the sport. In his successful quest to win the 2016 F1 World Championship, Nico Rosberg went back to Karts as part of his training and said, 'This year (2016), I did a lot of go-karting which I hadn't done in the past because we don't drive much in F1, practising that skill has really helped me '. Seven time F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher never stopped racing Karts alongside his F1 commitments. The great Ayrton Senna said, 'I started racing go-karts. And I love Karts. It's the most breathtaking sport in the world. More than F1, indeed, I used to like it the most'.
Not only is it the ideal environment in which to hone your driving techniques, but it is also huge fun and a physical challenge, top class Kart racers are all very fit and tough.
You will drive Tonykart Rotax Max Race or IAME X30 karts. These are all professionally prepared by us, in excellent condition and fast! These amazing machines can pull just under 3g through a corner and have 75% more power than a normal corporate kart.
We have a long and rich heritage in Karting, our company MD Ed Moore raced karts very successfully, worked as a professional in the industry and went back to Karting recently and won a British championship, his right hand man in the Stay Sharp program Richard Williams raced and won in Karts at British Championship level and has raced internationally in sportscars for many years. Karting is the purest form of motorsport, you will find our enthusiasm for these events infectious and it will drive you on to become a better driver. Our team are experienced at international level and have worked with novices to F1 drivers in their careers, they can quickly assess your strengths and weaknesses and politely focus on the key areas to help you progress. All of the equipment is owned and maintained by us so you know exactly what you will get providing consistency over multiple sessions and assured quality.
To provide well prepared equipment, be honest and polite with our coaching, but also direct and to the point. Bear in mind there isn't a lot we haven't seen before, every driver is different, the learning curve varies driver to driver, our aim is for you to improve in a sensible and logical way. Too many coaches try to impress by over complicating things, our way is to make things simple and not overload with too much information in one go, plus we will steer you in a way that means you can start analysing your own driving, you need to think for yourself too!
We strive to provide great products at realistic prices. We love coaching and Karting so much that if we could do it for free we would! We charge sensible fees bearing in mind the high level of attention you will receive.
All consumable parts, good used race tyres, fuel, circuit testing fee (note the events will be held on open test days) and a professional driver coach to guide you. After your session a de-brief and then a detailed, confidential driving assessment emailed to you (this will be an accurate analysis of where you are now and areas to keep focusing on).
Food, racewear (we can probably provide this if requested in advance), accident damage to the equipment (this would be charged at the price of any components damaged and £40 + VAT per hour to complete repairs).
