In this program, your child will be introduced to basic safety knowledge, kart overview, intro to driving around a cone course, then lead follow on the race track beginner loop, and then open lapping on the same loop.
Kids wear shorts and a short sleeve shirt. We will provide racing suits, helmets, and gloves. The kids need to wear tennis shoes, NOT opened toe shoes. A change of clothes might be wise as they will get sweaty. Also, if you and the kids are staying for the pool time, bring a bathing suit for you and the child. Also, we encourage you to take lots of pictures!
Kart ready to race, helmet, racing suit, gloves, basic snacks, and water.
The program is approximately 2.5 hours long and costs $149.95. This program is designed to give back to the young generation and is not one we make a profit on even when fully booked. We do this to help these children and provide them with an entry point into motorsports.
It is located at the Pro-Kart Track at Atlanta Motorsports Park, 20 Duck Thurmond Road, Dawsonville, GA 30534. 678-381-8527. Once you arrive at the gate, you will check in a waiver. Please note, only the parent or legal guardian can sign a waiver. (If you are bringing a child that you are not the legal guardian you will need the parents to sign and notarize the waiver located here (https://atlantamotorsportspark.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Minor-Waiver-Notary.pdf ) From the gate, go straight to the racing kart track, ask the guard how to get there. Directions from the gate: turn immediately right after the gate, the road will dead end, follow it to the left. Make your next left BEFORE the guardrail and follow the access road along the car race track to the kart track. Park at the lower parking lot (Paddock) You will see a tent set up next to the race track fence line. This will be your registration point and check-in. The entire program will happen in this area, as well as the lower part of the race track.
We will run the program in light rain situations. Please call no later than 3 hours before if rain is in the forecast to check if the program is still running. We will reschedule and not refund the fee for the program because the rain is too heavy.
DO NOT BE LATE. Use Waze to ensure being on time and build in an extra 30 to 45 minutes. WE ARE ON A TIGHT SCHEDULE AND WILL START THE PROGRAM WITHOUT YOU. WE MOVE FROM MODULE TO MODULE QUICKLY AND THE STAFF FOLLOWS SO THEY WILL MISS THE FUNDAMENTALS THEY NEED TO DRIVE. If you are late, we will do our best to get you caught up. If more than 30 minutes late, you must reschedule and there will be a $75.00 charge for rescheduling. We have limited spots, and this program is a loss leader for us so there is no profit even when fully booked. This is our commitment to the younger generation and growing them. If running late: Please call 678-381-8526, ask for the kart track, and tell them the registrars name and what time you will be there or if you need to reschedule, ask them to radio the program lead to get a pulse on the timing.
