Start Kart Racing

If you want to start kart racing for the first time the best approach is to have a go at a Karting Blast. That’s where, after a quick safety run through by our instructors, you drive a SODI kart on the Three Sisters circuit for 20 minutes. It’s not a race, so there’s no pressure. It’s simply a great way to test the water and see if you like it.

If you decide karting is something you want to pursue, or maybe you already have plans to start kart racing and become the next Jenson Button or Lewis Hamilton, then you’ll need a licence to race.

The ARKS licence (Association of Racing Karts Schools) is a Motor Sport Association (MSA) recognised and approved licence which allows the holder to race in MSA approved Race Meetings.

The ARKS test is undertaken by an approved MSA instructor, who can also give 1-to-1 tuition prior to taking the test. The course and test is run at Three Sisters circuit, overseen by the local MSA licenced instructor Sam Pollitt.
