Junior Karting for 8-15 year olds
Young Drivers at Daytona
Kart racing is the best and safest way for young people to learn the disciplines of motorsport. In fact, you will find that most successful racing drivers today began their careers in this exciting field. Daytona Tamworth offers the Indy and Club Circuits as dedicated Junior Circuits which enable aspiring racers to learn the craft in a safe, yet challenging, environment.
Daytona offers drivers aged 6-7 years with the opportunity to experience the thrill of controlling a race kart in a safe, closely managed environment. Daytona Bambino 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.
Daytona’s Bambino Induction Training sets young drivers on the right track in a carefully supervised safe environment. Beginning with basic kart controls – throttle and accelerator, the induction builds their confidence and competence through cornering, overtaking, recognising flags and awareness. With 45 minutes on track training, the induction is the perfect start for the young racer and culminates with drivers enjoying laps in readiness to progress to Bambino Arrive&Drive.
Bambino Induction Graduates can enjoy Arrive&Drive sessions on the purpose built North Circuit. Bambino Arrive&Drive is available at weekends and also during school holidays.
Age range 8 to 15 years – minimum height 125cms (4 feet 1 inch).
All children must be accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult at all times.
These timed practice sessions for juniors are typically scheduled during school holidays and at weekends.
Daytona Tamworth offers Exclusive circuit hire for Birthday Celebrations, with a minimum age of 8 years and no maximum age, parents and older siblings can join in too. Once the drivers have registered and signed in, they are issued race suits before going through to the safety briefing – a thorough explanation of track safety and flags, and kart control. Each driver is then issued their helmet and race gloves and taken to the safety of the pit lane, where they receive individual briefing on the controls. After a final safety check in which the children must demonstrate their understanding and ability to operate the karts, it’s then out onto track to enjoy their Exclusive Track session. Our Party packages offer a host of superb extras too to really make it a day to remember!

Junior Race School
Daytona Tamworth gets young racers off on the right foot with a specially-developed Race School for drivers aged 8 to 15 years. Youngsters are taken step by step through all aspects of racing to equip them with the right techniques and an understanding of the sport. Race School includes classroom theory and lots of track tuition, and racing. Junior Race School is conveniently scheduled during the school holidays so places are in demand making pre-booking essential. On successfully completing Race School, Junior drivers are then eligible to join InKart, Daytona’s prestigious annual Championship scheduled every month.
