Professional Instructors

Our programs are designed and operated by passionate professionals with decades of experience racing, coaching and developing young drivers.  Our Lead Instructor, Craig has coached hundreds of racing drivers ranging from raw beginners all the way to regional and national champions who went on to become professional racing drivers!   Our team will ensure that your little racer becomes a safer, better educated driver, gets quicker around the racetrack, and learns a few valuable life skills along the way. 

Best experience our kids have ever had!! Craig is an amazing instructor and Rose was absolutely fabulous. A must do when in the Okanagan. Will be doing again next time we are back. These are real fast Go-Karts…not the typical ones you see at your usual go kart tracks!!!

BEGGINER to EXPERT

Our Camps are divided in to Beginner and Advanced groups to ensure that every driver is engaged at all times, but not in over their heads.  We believe that individual attention is critical to driver development.

TAILORED 

Programs will be progressive but flexible.   We will address every driver at their own level and offer challenges that are suitable, regardless of experience, or how many camp days they have attended.

RELEVANT

Our goal is that each participant improves not only their driving skills, race-craft and speed, but also life skills like sportsmanship, commitment, problem solving, teamwork and communication.
