“Worth every cent, every bit  of the day was beneficial in some way or another”
- past graduate of the course.

Get ahead of of the pack, sign up now for one of Kartsport’s official “Explore and Learn” ACADEMY driver development courses. Only New Zealand’s very best coaches have been selected, all carry championship status, all have competed at the highest level nationally and many excelled in the heat of international challenges. The coaching team is ready to share their skills and passion with you and your crew.

Open to current Kartsport members the “Stage One” level Explore and Learn one day courses are aimed at relatively new members of all classes who have entered a minimum of 5 meetings and are looking to take that next step up in terms of setup and driver knowledge. A crewmember is encouraged to accompany the driver and for those under 18 this is mandatory. The crew will be encouraged to take an active part in the training day especially with regards to kart preparation and set up procedures. Space is limited so enrol now.

Here's what past graduates of the courses have said:

“The coaches were knowledgeable and really supportive, they found time to give everyone personal attention. The blend of theory and track time was spot on”

“I know that I'll be faster because I've attended this course”

“I have learnt as much if not more than my driver”

"I was in the group with Tony Chambers and at the end of the day took 0.6 seconds off my best time around the track"

“Worth every cent, every bit of the day was beneficial in some way or another”
