Getting into karting as an adult pretty much starts the same way as it does for all ages – the first step is to get down to your local track and have a go. The professional staff at all our tracks will talk you through everything you need to know, including how to drive a go kart as well as some handy racing tips.

How to get into go kart racing

In search of a new hobby? Think go karting might be for you but not sure where to start? Fear not, getting into go karting couldn’t be simpler with us. Here we explain everything you need to know to hone those skills needed to become the next best racing champion. If you’re a thrill-seeker, a competitive sportsperson, or simply want to try out something new, grab a helmet and let’s go!

For the young ones

If your children have expressed an interest in karting, there are plenty of options available to help them take things to the next level. But first, you can try out a Family Track Day and see if they like it – this will also help you get to know our safety procedures and put your mind at ease.

We cater for children aged eight and up who are more than welcome to come down to one of our tracks and try their hand at this thrilling sport in the safety of one of our Cadet Karts.

We have Family Experiences or Junior Track Days specifically designed so that you can either compete as a whole gang, or the kids can have competitions against their mates. Before anyone gets in a kart though, our professional team will run a safety briefing, making sure everyone knows the rules of racing. Plus, our teams are always available to make sure everyone has the assistance and advice they need.

You’ll get all the equipment you need provided, such as helmets and overalls, but you’ll need to make sure you have a balaclava if you’re borrowing one of our helmets – you can get disposable ones for N$....

As a safety note, to kart with us children must be aged eight or over, and have an inside leg measurement of at least 25 inches.

Once you’re sure the kids in your crew have found their karting legs, you can book karting lessons.

Academy members will then put their skills to the test, under the watchful eyes of our top instructors, who’ll help them practice, hone their technique and, ultimately, succeed!

Our Cadet Academy is a great way to boost kids’ confidence on the tracks, and get some really useful advice while they’re at it!
