ProtoGP Racing offers progression into highly competitive championship kart racing for participants who’ve completed our ProtoGP Schools Kart Challenge in schools.
Starting in October 2016, our ProtoGP Racing team will compete against 27 other school teams in the National Schools Karting Championships or NatSKA at major racetracks throughout the year leading up to the prestigious National Finals next summer. We need your help to raise minimum of £5000 to pay for equipment, help with travel costs and race entry fees. Please donate here.
NatSKA has been the home of schools and youth group karting for over 4o years, with the principal aim of making motorsport affordable and accessible to schoolchildren, whilst maintaining a high level of competition.
The race meetings are run by NatSKA under the authority of the Motor Sports Association (MSA) who are responsible for all motor sport in the UK including British Touring Cars, Formula 3, Formula Renault and all motorcycle racing including the Moto GP British Grand Prix.
Karting as a school activity covers a wide range of educational, academic, technological, social and sporting subjects. It is effective in improving attainment, achievement and ambition for all children, including those who need additional support in their learning. Pupils are often motivated to attempt work previously considered to be too advanced or technically difficult, and their teachers can often control and channel this to good effect. Indeed, the practical aspects of designing and building a kart are just as important as the enjoyment of driving.
