Allowing newcomers the opportunity to start karting in a professional environment, our dedicated instructors boast a wealth of knowledge and the key assets to ensure every child learns the fundamentals of driving with safety in mind!

Arrive & drive hire sessions on our junior race track is often the first step for many…

But what next?

Established in 2007, Rye House’s very own Karting London has been the only dedicated club in London that offers the stepping stone into “owner driver” racing for children 5 years+. Having proved ourselves with staggering results, we are proud to have played our part in creating numerous club, British and European champions and even a World Champion!


With over 20 years experience in the industry, we understand that taking the leap & purchasing your child his/her own race kart can be a challenging decision to make.

K1 Stars offers the perfect solution!!

In association with Rye House Kart Raceway & Rye House Karting London, K1 is now OPEN to register your interest!!

The 5 week K1 course is set out to combat the saying; “is it a five minute wonder?” which can sometimes deter parents from purchasing their own equipment.

Unveiling a fleet of brand new race spec Bambino karts, the model is simple; Under the full supervision of our professional race coaches, children are able to experience the real deal in a fully equipped racing machine!

Priced at £499, the team will customise the kart to ensure every Star is fitted suitably and comfortably prior to the start of the course.

The spectrum of ability at such a young age is vast. However, we are confident that our training techniques and methods will build a strong foundation to kick start our members path into the world of motor sport!

How the course unfolds…

Week 1: The excitement of getting behind the wheel for the very first time can often become an overwhelming situation for anyone to deal with, especially at such a young age! The main focus on week 1 will be to ensure each driver is confident with the simple (but vital) elements of controlling the vehicle. Foot work and technique will be the primary focus to enable drivers to lap in a safe & controlled manner by themselves without the aid of his/her instructor.

Week 2: Having recapped what was learnt in week 1, it is important to understand the challenges of spatial awareness. The ability to steer around obstacles and stop within dedicated zones will educate drivers whilst keeping it fun and entertaining!!

Week 3: Drivers will be passenger to the coach in a side by side kart to demonstrate each drill at pace in order for Stars to imitate! The emphasis on accelerating to full speed but also hard braking will install confidence in the capabilities of the vehicle. Remember, the karts we’ll be using are geared up to compete!

Week 4: After a short but formative summary of what we’ve learnt so far, a group test session will commence. Coaches will be on hand to assist (by way of following) and advance each drivers capabilities! The team will also cover kart and driver data!

Week 5: Race Day!! The team will imitate a time trial race event for all K1 members! Light hearted and most of all FUN, each driver will be presented with a K1 awards presentation… We are all winners!! To conclude the course, not only will our members be certificated novice drivers but parents will also be given the opportunity to purchase a kart with a £499 discount should they wish to pursue meaning:
