Junior Sprockets

The Junior Sprockets program is a participation initiative developed by Karting Australia that provides participants aged between 6 & 12 years of age with the opportunity to experience the thrill and excitement of driving an authentic racing kart in a safe and controlled environment. Under the expert tuition of Troy Hunt and the instructors from the Topgun Driver Training Academy, each participant will progress through a series of activity stations where they will learn the basics of karting.

At the completion of the 2 hour intensive program, each child will be presented with a gift bag containing an array of merchandise including information on how to ‘Get Started in Karting’ along with a free 12 month Karting Australia practice licence to assist them with the transition into competitive karting.  To register for an upcoming Junior Sprockets Program please click on the links below.
