A group of sixteen teenagers arrived at MMC this past week for the first of four Teen Motorsports Camps. The campers joined us from as far away as France, Wyoming, and Florida for four days of non-stop motorsports action. Intro to Driving offer campers basic driving skills before teaching them car control and skills to become a safer, more competent driver.
The teens, ages 13-17, checked in on Sunday afternoon where they were greeted by MMC instructors who fitted them in helmets, race suits and vehicles, allowing them to hit the ground running on Monday morning.
Campers, most with no driving experience, began their motorsports experience on the karting track to familiarize them with operating pedals, braking, and steering before taking the karts onto a wet skid pad for some car control practice. On the main track, campers got behind the wheel of BMWs and MINIs for lead follow exercises and in-car instruction on a variety of track configurations. The campers completed several autocross exercises, as well, to hone their car control skills.
On the last day of camp, the teens headed across Cantrell to try out the cross karts before heading back to the karting track for an endurance race. A closing ceremony took place with campers’ families present where awards and trophies were given out.
Campers spent the evenings at The Kartrite Hotel and & Indoor Waterpark where they enjoyed water rides, bowling, laser tag, arcades, great meals, and, of course, the camaraderie that comes along with the camp experience.
Another session of Intro to Motorsports is taking place this week, followed by next week’s Performance Driving and Competition Camps.
