Beginner Drivers

All drivers under 8 years of age require to be assessed by an ARKS Instructor prior to being allowed access to the race circuit. An approved list will be maintained showing those who have attained the required standard.

All equipment including personal equipment must meet MSA safety requirements.

Beginner drivers for the first few visits to WSKC may be run in separate group sessions by class or MSA box structure, until such times as it is felt they can safely practice in their normal class session. This decision will be made by the senior marshal who will also have the authority to remove drivers from normal sessions and return them to beginner sessions if it felt they pose a possible safety issue.

These sessions will be limited to 5 minutes when practice requirements are busy.

All drivers must run black Novice plates with white numbers to the front and rear until they have obtained required signatures to upgrade to Full National B Licence.

All drivers must have passed an ARKS test before being allowed to practice on race weekend practice days.

Although we allow most types of class to practice at WSKC, not every Cadet, Junior and Senior classes race here. We strongly recommend that those intending to practice and race at our club choose a well supported kart class to join.
