Cadet Kart Academy
The SCK Cadet Academy curriculum has been carefully designed by circuit director and driver champion George Lovell.
Our cadet karting academy is perfect as an introduction into the world of Karting, and is ideal for young drivers looking to take their 1st steps in the sport. For the drivers that do not progress in Karting they are sure to have a fantastic time.
The academy stretches over three weeks with emphasis on driver progression.
Kart, Suit & Helmet Fitting
Motorsport Terminology (drivers need to understand race talk when we are training them, this is a short classroom sessions designed to give drivers the understanding of specific racing phrases)
Track Walk (A key part to any race session is a track walk. Here we discuss breaking points, acceleration points & and other notable track specifics)
Acceleration & Braking (A fundamental part of driving fast is getting the basics correct. We start with getting the power down and getting the kart stopped)
Slaloms & Speed test (here we get the kart moving around. The perfect situation to add some steering input and get a feel for what the kart can do)
Timed Session (We finish week one with a timed session that starts behind your instructor)
Racing Lines & Breaking zones (We start week two with a short classroom session on race lines and breaking points around the SCK circuit)
Follow sessions (Let's put those classroom sessions into practice with a instructor led session)
Independent sessions (Cone work is next where you drive the circuit with cones to guide your lines and breaking points)
Independent sessions (More track time without the help of the cone markers)
Week Three - Race Day
Practrice (Two practice sessions to recap on week 1 & week 2.
Qualifying (A time trial to set a grid starting position for a race)
Race (A race to finish the course with medals awarded to all drivers for successful completion of the SCK Cadet Kart academy)
