This course is a pre-requisite for any drivers between the ages of 10-14 (minimum age is 10 years old) who wish to participate in the Arrive and Drive Sessions.

Young racers achieving a lap time of 90 seconds or faster during the academy will be granted an age exemption to participate in the Arrive and Drive sessions (with a parent present).
