Victory Lane’s Karting Camp is a week long (Monday-Friday) fun-filled experience for racers 8-15 years of age. The camp is led by our Youth Program’s Staff. The basis of the camp is to let kids have fun and race go-karts. Our staff has each day structured to include driving, instruction, games (adult tricycle races, ping-pong, relay races), lunch and then more racing. Some of the racing lessons learned will be the racing line, passing, and the mental side of racing. This is a great value with a lot of seat time.
