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 track rules!
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 the K1 team will continue to offer official test sessions (usually twice per week) to enable all K1 Stars the opportunity to advance their skills!
Anything else?: Of course there is… the fun never stops!!!
