REGULAR SCHOOL PROGRAMS//

PROGRAM ONE// Intro To Karting
Never been involved in karting? Want to give it a try? Try our Intro-To-Karting course. This is a three-hour school including classroom instruction, safety briefing and plenty of track time in one of our racing karts. Intro-to-karting sessions can be private or with groups and we will utilize either our 9.0 HP powered ROCK KARTS or 125cc water-cooled ROTAX-powered racing karts, depending on your experience and comfort level. All ages are welcome!

PROGRAM TWO// Intermediate Karting Classes*
Are you ready to take the next step? Our intermediate course is available as a private or semi-private class and brings you up to the next level in karting. We use real racing karts and more intense instruction for both the driver and basics of the kart itself. Course lengths vary. We teach to the level to challenge each student .

PROGRAM THREE// Advanced Karting Classes*
The Advanced Karting class puts you behind the wheel of one of several high-performance racing karts. Available in half-day or full-day time blocks, MRP gives you the chance to hone your skills in the 29hp Rotax Max kart, a push-button start race kart or the powerful 2-speed DD2 Rotax Shifter (if available), the ultimate racing machine.  The course includes in-depth instruction, kart rental & safety equipment.

*THESE CLASSES MAY BE TAKEN USING YOUR OWN RACING EQUIPMENT.
