WHO IS IT FOR:
To karting drivers aged between 12 and 17 (and their parents) who already race in karts. The Bandini Racing Academy initiative aims to give an opportunity to all those who already race karting locally or nationally, without the support of official teams and who have never participated in international events such as the WSK or the FIA World Championship.
Giving the opportunity to a young driver who is already racing to express himself – for free – on the stage of an international WSK race to make the “leap in quality” which usually allows those who are heavily supported to become a professional driver.
The Bandini Racing Academy created by Lorenzo Ranucci is a talent scouting project which will start in 2021 and is aimed at all the younger individuals who aspire to race in a kart at an international level in the OK and OKJ categories.
But that is not all.
In fact, the best classified at the end of each selection will not only be able to participate in a race on the WSK Promotion circuit, within the Bandini Racing Academy team set up with the support of Kart Republic. They will be also able to experience this at no extra cost! All one needs to pay is the participation to the tests!
The Bandini Racing Academy program will be divided into 5 days of testing on the circuits which are part of the WSK Promotion calendar.
Everything takes place with the support of Kart Republic, the brand founded and led by Dino Chiesa, one of the most successful team managers on the international scene.
WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING
Subscribers will only need the helmet and the suit. All the rest (kart, fuel, tires and assistance) is included in the registration fee!
TRAINING OF EXCELLENCE
During the day, the drivers will be able to benefit from the experience and advice of an official Kart Republic driver who will closely follow the participants even during the collective activities of track walk and on-board video analysis.
Thanks to the presence of telemetry experts, the registered participants will have an extra tool to maximize their performance in view of the grand finale of the day.
At the end of free practice, in fact, it will be the Time Attack session to unquestionably determine the drivers who will be able to take part in a race on a WSK Promotion circuit. Participants will take to the track in groups of 5 and will have 10 minutes to set the best time.
At the end of each day, the first two classified in OK and the first classified in the OKJ will be selected.
