GO KART RACING CHALLENGE!
A program for experienced returning Camp Motorsports campers, ages 11-17, which includes competitive go-kart racing! Campers must have attended at least TWO prior weeks at Camp Motorsport. No exceptions will be made for those coming from other racing/driving programs
For returning campers who would like to participate in wheel-to-wheel competitive go-kart racing while attending camp. Although, traditionally, Camp Motorsport is a non-competitive environment, we do recognize the value of challenging ones skills against others as an instructional tool. In keeping with the camps operational philosophy, we do not endorse a win-at-all-costs philosophy, and racing activities will be conducted in a manner which promotes the self-esteem of each participant, ensures emotional security, and empowers campers to achieve their goals. As with all of our programs, campers will continue to be encouraged to improve their driving skills and judge their performance on their own progress, in addition to comparing their skills to others in competitive activities.
Total seat time is the same as all other programs, with each camper driving a minimum of two behind-the-wheel sessions every day- one session in the off-road dirt karts and one session of go-karting. Go karting will include competitive wheel-to-wheel racing, in addition to instructional behind the wheel time. This program also includes all of the regular camp activities, such as daily swimming, paintball, Motorsports-related Science, Technology, Engineering & Math, and general recreational activities.
