The Daniel Ricciardo Young Driver Academy is run at every round of our race series on a Saturday morning, and costs £125.00 per driver and runs in modules over a 2 hour session. We provide a demo Daniel Ricciardo Young Driver Academy DRS62 kart plus driver helmet and suit and gloves if required.
At this point young drivers do not have to be registered in the Series to try out the Daniel Ricciardo Young Driver Academy.
Its is important that young drivers have tried indoor fun go karting or outdoor fun go karting before coming to the Daniel Ricciardo Young Driver Academy as the DRS karts are racing karts and are much faster !
We will be announcing some Officially Affiliated Daniel Ricciardo Young Driver Academy indoor go karting circuits through the second part of 2019, where young drivers can get some initial go karting driving experience before attending to the Daniel Ricciardo Young Driver Academy!
The Daniel Ricciardo Young Driver Academy is a perfect way for young drivers from 7 years ( in the year of their 8th birthday) to 13 years ( *minimum driver height 1m 25cms and minimum driver weight with helmet and suit of 25kgs) to come and try out the Ricciardo kart DRS62 for the first time under supervision of our Official DRS driver coaches without you having to actually purchase a kart at this point.
The sessions start with a classroom safety briefing for our young drivers before moving on track in a car as passengers with an instructor to show the pit lane exit and entrance, racing lines and braking points. The idea is to give our young drivers the confidence to go out on to an outdoor racing circuit for the first time.
With the Daniel Ricciardo Young Driver Academy a positive first driving experience is our primary goal for all our young drivers.
The Daniel Ricciardo Young Driver Academy uses a system of cones around the circuit to signify and guide young drivers on their braking points, as well as cone gated entry points to each corner to teach the racing line and correct corner apexes.
The Daniel Ricciardo Young Driver Academy awards certificates to all young drivers who complete our Academy and is a memorable experience!
At this point parents / guardians have to purchase a young drivers very own DRS62 Ricciardo kart. Once purchased a young driver must complete and pass the Daniel Ricciardo Series Driver evaluation test in order to register as a member and enter an Official race of the Daniel Ricciardo Series.
