Bambino & Junior Karting
Young Drivers at Daytona
Kart racing is the best and safest way for young people to learn the disciplines of motorsport. The most successful racing drivers all began their careers in this exciting field. The North Circuit at Daytona Milton Keynes is specifically-designed for children whilst more experienced Junior Drivers can progress to our National Circuit. All children must be accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult at all times.
Daytona offers drivers aged 6-7 years with the opportunity to experience the thrill of controlling a race go-kart in a safe, closely managed environment. Daytona Bambino go-karts are strictly governed for younger drivers. All sessions begin with a comprehensive safety briefing, and we provide specially developed crash helmets and race suits.
Mandatory Bambino Training
Daytona’s Bambino Induction Training sets young drivers on the right track in a carefully supervised safe environment. Beginning with the basics – throttle braking and cornering – Training Module One builds confidence and competence in kart control. Module Two builds on this knowledge with cornering technique, overtaking, the flag system and awareness. Each Module is 20 minutes of on-track training making Daytona’s Bambino Induction for the young racer. After graduating through the Training Modules, Bambino Drivers are in ready to progress to Bambino Practice.
Bambino Graduates can enjoy Practice sessions on the purpose built North Circuit – available at weekends and also during school holidays.
Bambino Advanced Practice
Advanced Bambino Graduates can enjoy Practice sessions with other more advanced Bambino drivers so they keep improving – available at weekends and also during school holidays.
For drivers aged 8-15 years there’s no better place than Daytona. Our Junior karts are perfect for younger drivers with 2 sizes and adjustable seats and pedals. All sessions begin with a comprehensive safety briefing, and we provide specially developed crash helmets and race suits.
