Practice 

It is a good idea to get in some practice laps before going to your first race meeting.  Most Clubs tracks are availablePractice Licence cover.jpg during the week and on weekends for casual hire to Club members.  Some tracks have restrictions on the hours that the track is available so contact your local club first for details. Club contact details are available on the Clubs page or by following a link directly to a Clubs website from the Links page.

There may be a small charge for the use of the track and you should always have another person with you who is capable of driving a motor vehicle should any accident occur.  All the required safety equipment must be worn and all rules need to be followed and the Clubs indemnity form should also be signed before practicing.

For most practice activity a Practice Licence is required.

EXCEPTIONS:

Formal Club Have A Go Days under the control of affiliated Clubs where the appropriate Have A Go Indemnity has been completed by the driver/guardian.
Have A Go Experiences under the control of authorised members of the karting trade where the appropriate Have A Go Experience Indemnity has been completed by the driver/guardian and the driver details collected for KartSport New Zealand records.

A person may drive in Practice/Testing (ref Q5) ONLY in a class of kart specified for their age group (ref D1.2).
