The New Racer: Facing The Daunting Transition to Motorsports Competition

All too often, potential kart racers face a challenging proposition when it comes to transforming their passion and interest in motorsport to becoming an active participant as a driver.

From getting up to speed with new mechanical and driving challenges, to facing financial hurdles regarding the commitment it may take to purchase a performance kart and equipment, or even the challenge of becoming a part of the motorsport community, there are multiple hurdles a new racer must face as they transition into karting competition.

Within Colorado, Apex Predator has recognized this challenge, and has taken action to help!

With AP’s tailored karting experience packages, clients can give performance kart driving a try within an environment that brings professional driving instruction and mechanical support to those that need it most–the newcomer.

Program Overview

Each client that participates in the “Try Karting” program is met with a thorough and progressive approach to guiding their transition into kart racing competition. Initially, each client is received with an in-depth consultation regarding their overall sporting goals, aspirations, and prior experience regarding motorsports competition.

Then, drivers are fitted to a professionally-prepared performance kart and subsequently mentored throughout an introductory kart driving experience, which brings them up to speed within a progressive and methodical track day environment.

Because each client’s initial goals, future objectives, and prior performance driving experience is unique, each “Try Karting” experience is truly unique, and tailored! The state of Colorado has 5 performance-karting facilities to choose from depending on the location of the client, all of which are eligible for the “Try Karting” program.
