only $350 per student (discounted to $275/participants for groups of 2+), you can learn the ropes of endurance kart
racing. We offer multiple Race Schools on the East Coast this year.
Many of the karting tracks are located at international race tracks
and are highly-revered in the racing world. You’ll make personal
history on tracks that have launched the careers of international
limit each race school to 30 students, which provides a low
student-instructor ratio. We designed our instruction method with the
student in mind in order to provide the highest-quality and most
enjoyable learning experience possible. Our instructors provide
individual instruction and useful feedback to students to ensure that
each student masters each skill set.
combine classroom and hands-on learning to give you the best practical
approach to race car driving. Since our emphasis is on track
time, each student receives at least 1-1/2 hours behind the wheel. You
learn new racing techniques in stages so you won’t feel overwhelmed
having to learn too much at once. You share camaraderie with your
fellow students as you develop a working knowledge of karting in about
six hours. You will experience a wide array of thrills, including
planning strategy, racing wheel-to-wheel at 45 mph, and hopefully, being
part of a winning team.
Regardless of your motivation, when you participate in an Endurance
Karting Race School, you leave having experienced something that
impacted your life on so many levels. Join us at a Race School and see
how we “Take Fun Seriously!”
Endurance Karting Race School covers a number of racing techniques.
Here is just a taste of what you can learn:
This is a classroom lesson that provides an overall orientation, an
introduction to karts and the meaning of the racing flags.
Lead-Follow with Instructors:
You will drive at a slow, constant speed while you get familiar with the
kart. You will learn the proper race line, turn-in point, apex and exit
Kart Control: Experiencing the limits of the karts by driving into a curve faster than the tires can handle. Learn how to counter steer to correct the “oversteer condition” created by the excessive speed. Once control is obtained you will use proper braking to stop the kart for individual feedback from an instructor. And you don’t have to pay for the tires if you spin.
You will drive closely with an instructor or a fellow student at a
medium, constant speed.
You will drive at a medium-2-high speed as the instructor demonstrates the correct racing line. Supervised passing will be
permitted on the straight aways.
Track Walk: You will review the racing line from an out-of-kart track
perspective and discuss the fine points of reading track surface,
correct corner entry implications and incorrect corner entry
ramifications. Lunch is also served at this time (we provide lunch and drink).
High Speed Sessions: These are longer, full speed (or the speed you are comfortable with) sessions. Included are
driver changes and individual practice sessions. Instructors will
illustrate the “trouble corners” and provide individual feedback. The
instructor will emphasize correct racing line, turn in, braking and
acceleration points, and open passing.
Putting it all together! A fun finish to a great day!
Schedule: Registration opens at 7:30 am, with Introductions starting at 8:30 am. Schooly typically finishes around 2:15, but my go until 3:00 pm depending on total number of students. The format of the day is as described above.
