When students participate in the Introduction to Karting course with the Alan Rudolph Racing Academy (ARRA), they will begin in the classroom learning about all of the basics of performance karting. Topics to be covered include:

  • Track etiquette
  • Proper seating 
  • Hand positions
  • Vision
  • Line techniques
  • Proper throttle
  • Braking 

After the classroom portion of the class, racers will be off to the race track starting with a quick overview of the kart and a 'Track Talk' which will familiarize you with the circuit. Then it's time to begin our track sessions!

  • The first track session will be a slalom exercise where we will focus on vision, line, and smoothness of our kart driving. 
  • The next track session we will introduce the track with a lead and follow, where the instructor will show students the proper line around the circuit.  
  • Finally, the course will conclude with open lapping sessions, and will include instruction between each session maximizing your amount of seat time and getting you “Up to Speed.”

The ARRA Introduction to Karting course utilizes the Speedsportz Racing Park's 125cc Rotax TAG karts. Students must be at least 13 years of age to use these karts, as they are able to reach up to 70mph! 

However, younger students can experience performance karting too; contact us for more information about junior karting classes!
