Summer Camp - 2018
Nitro-Kart is all about the kids. Driver development. Training. Teamwork. We don't just talk about it, we actually practice what we preach. 2016 saw a handful of Nitro drivers undergo driver training with Nick Tucker. These drivers have seen incredible improvements in racecraft, strategy, driving, stamina, and ultimately in race results, landing on many national podiums well ahead of their peers.
2017 was our first kart camp, and the drivers that attended made the most of their training, boasting huge results nationwide for the remainder of the 2017 season and into the 2018 season. This includes an Iame World Championship by Brent Crews!
There is often a big disconnect between coaches and drivers in regards to training. It is difficult to articulate complicated racing techniques to young drivers from highly experienced adult drivers. Nick has completely refined this process and has added an "on track" element that combines drills with multiple youth drivers along with adult coaches on the track at the same time. Racing situations can be simulated over and over, whether it be starts, passes, defensive strategies, drafting techniques and more. The racecraft developed using Nick's program is something that would take 500 races to accomplish. These drills are not done until your child gets it right, they are done over and over until your child can't get it wrong.
Our Summer camp is truly unique. There is nothing else like it in youth motorsports. It is intense. Your driver will be pushed beyond their comfort level to build confidence on the track. There will be group drills on track where your driver will have specific goals to achieve amid a pack of hungry racers. There will also be one on one drills with fellow drivers and/or adult coaches on karts to perfect certain techniques. This will all happen in a controlled environment with safety as our #1 priority. The repetitive nature of this training will help your driver to learn new things, perfect skills, gain aggression, and improve on track in a short amount of time.
Each day will be filled with trackside coaching, group drills on track without adult coaches, group sessions on track with adult coaches, one on one sessions with coaches as needed, and seminars with nutritional experts and trainers. Your driver will be exposed to many new things, including the important of diet and exercise. It doesn't stop there. We will also have sessions throughout the day for the parents. These sessions will mainly focus on advanced chassis tuning techniques, maintenance, and engine tuning. Everyone will stay busy at Nitro Camp!
