Track Days

Does your child want to be the next Lewis Hamilton, Sebastien Vettel or Danica Patrick? Maybe they’re wanting to follow a career as a motorsport engineer or technician?

Whatever their future ambitions may be, at Midland Karting we are working on nurturing the next generation of motorsport enthusiasts, fans and experts.

Our Track Day events build on our years of experience in delivering tuition sessions to children aged 8-16 years of age.

We don’t just give them a helmet and a ‘racing line’ to follow. Our sessions provide expert guidance on important aspects such as good ‘race craft’ and the theory of motor racing.

After a period of classroom-based learning, drivers will head out onto the circuit to put it all into practice under the watchful eye of our tutors. Drivers will be given one-to-one trackside guidance and feedback throughout, before heading out onto the circuit for one final time – a race against their fellow students, to see who’s learnt the most and who’s the quickest.

The typical itinerary for the morning is as follows:

09:15 – Arrival

Drivers arrive with parents/guardians. Outstanding balances are paid, disclaimer forms are completed and signed by parents/guardians.

09:30 – INTRODUCTIONS

Drivers are escorted to briefing room where Instructors will be introduced. During this time, each driver will watch our Health and Safety briefing video and kitted out with appropriate racewear for the day.

10:00 – RACE CRAFT

Learn the fundamentals of motorsport – including vehicle control, flags and signals, braking, accelerating, cornering and – most importantly, for some – overtaking.

11:00 – TRACK PRACTICE

Skills learnt in the classroom are brought out onto the circuit for the first time. Individual feedback from the instructors will be provided to each driver to ensure maximum knowledge is obtained

11:30 – RACE

The theory and lessons learnt in practice are brought into a fun-but-competitive race, with post-race podium celebration.

12:15 – LUNCH

Enjoy a hot lunch with refreshing drink to quench the thirst of an action-packed morning.

12:30 – DEPARTURE

Parents/Guardians return to collect the drivers
