Get Your Kid Racing in our Junior League on Tuesday!
With 18-year-old Colton Herta becoming the youngest IndyCar winner in history last weekend, we’re reminded on how important it is to start racing at a young age if you want to stand a chance against the world’s best.
That’s why it’s great that we host Junior League at every location in the country. Junior League is the easiest and most affordable way for you to get your kid racing in a competitive wheel-to-wheel indoor karting championship and our third round is next Tuesday evening, April 2!
Why Junior League?
K1 Speed breaks down the intimidation factor of getting into competitive racing. Prior to this league, you typically had to buy your own go-kart, pay for all the spare parts, maintenance, driver equipment, and track fees just to see if your child was any good at the track against other kids. Not anymore.
All you have to do at K1 Speed is pay the registration cost of $40, and your child will be provided with a helmet rental, headsock, a 12-lap qualifier and 12-lap race for position.
Though two rounds have already occurred, it’s still not too late to score massive points in the remaining 8 events. And at the end of the championship always gets awesome prizes and awards!
It doesn’t get any easier than this to provide your child with the fundamentals of racing from an early age. Just ask Patrick Long, an accomplished racing driver and official factory driver for Porsche:
“I only wish I had the access to indoor karting as an aspiring driver – that is an amazing resource, because a lot of people don’t have the finances or the space or the resources – trucks and trailers, and mechanics, and chains, and sprockets – so that is an amazing resource to learn racecraft, to learn the physical and mental demands of how tough it actually is. And laps. Seat time is a term I knew from a very young age. Utilize that opportunity, be thankful for it, because it wasn’t around 20 years ago in the US. It was in Europe!”
