COMPKART University set to grow Karting with an educational approach

Erie, PA, January 23, 2019 – COMPKART is pleased to relaunch its karting University program aimed toward the growth of the sport. With a fixed curriculum as well as a strong partner program throughout the COMPKART resale network the program will be available in multiple locations in 2019 and beyond. First introduced to karting in 2013 under parent company J3 Competition, the program was active in 2014 on a partial basis thus leading to the full relaunch in 2019 and onward.

“As we work to re-strengthen and empower not only the existing market which is extremely important, we are heavily focusing on investing knowledge to the new consumer base which is equally as important as we work forward to stabilize and create growth in the sport. The re-introduction of our University program has been on the task list for the past couple years and the timing of this relaunch is simply right and something the market is asking for.” — Management

The University program was first introduced under a three day format that provided on track training as well as fitness instruction, off track data analysis not to mention technical insights to the drivers and participants. The new revised structure has a scalable multi-pronged approached that is offered in a step by step concept allowing for a more detailed educational approach. The optioned menu provides everything from introductory courses focused on safety and the basics of driving while also being accompanied by a set of accelerated courses. The accelerated course work provides a deeper level of driving techniques as well as understanding vehicle dynamics of a common day racing kart alongside race management.

“The on track ‘lead-follow’ and driving nonstop has its place, however our experiences prove that knowledge and a full understanding of competition is far more resourceful to learn prior to actual track time and competition. For a lasting and exponential growth experience the educational fundamentals are really critical to not only enjoy the sport as a hobby, but equally if participants aspire to be make Motorsports a profession” – Management
