Remember Sportsmanship

[Please scroll down to read "news" applicable for our Rookie and Junior drivers.]

Getting your child into karting is a very positive experience for all the family. Both girls and boys race at Jenna Kart Club and enjoy it equally. 
 
Karting provides an opportunity for our kids to develop values of good sportsmanship, fairness, self improvement and a sense of achievement, whilst also aiding physical, social and emotional skills.
 
Learning to drive under race conditions teaches our children important skills that will benefit them when they transfer that knowledge in preparation for dealing with drivers on our roads. 
 
All this is done in a safe environment, where we also care about making sure you and your child/ren get to have plenty of fun!!

Our young drivers join up between the ages of 7 years and 14 years to start in the Rookie class.

Even Junior drivers start in the Rookie class and after the first meeting may elect to race with the Junior field with parental and Club permission. This occurrence usually only applies to young drivers with previous racing experience who can show they are competitive with the other Juniors. They compete from the rear of field in the Junior class for a minimum of three race meetings.

The major difference between Rookies and Juniors is the restrictor plate, which as its name implies, restricts the motor in power. The plate (with a 13mm maximum diameter hole) must be in place between the header and motor at all race meetings. Rookies (only) are permitted to run a clutch to ensure they complete as much time on the track as possible.

It is encouraged to keep new drivers in the Rookie class for as long as they need where they can learn important driving skills and become competitive in a safe division.

To develop the driving skills of our young karters, we ensure they get plenty of track time. Our kids can't learn unless they're out on the track driving!

We promote the highest ideals of sportsmanship and fairness, thereby cultivating strength of character, self discipline and responsibility.

 

Objectives:
To provide quality opportunities for Juniors to participate in motorsport.
To provide a safe, enjoyable environment where Juniors can participate without prejudice.
To encourage skill development, fun and learning together.
To develop values of fairness, self improvement and achievement.
