Pedal karts

Pedal karting in Essex

Ride our pedal-powered go-karts around the specially designed street circuit and race track. These robust karts are suitable for ages 7 to adult and are equipped with forward and reverse gears and brakes.

A series of exercises will teach the basic rules of the road and driving etiquette. Riders will also practice a range of manoeuvres which will help develop coordination and spatial awareness. This can be followed by competitive racing around the oval track.

Although young people often appear outwardly confident, constantly taking and publishing photos of themselves, this confidence is often missing from their academic work. Accepting that perfection cannot always be achieved is a hindrance in the progression of many young people’s academic performance. By taking an attitude of perseverance towards the Essex Outdoors activities, our customers are able to develop their levels of confidence.

Everyone at some point has struggled with concentration. Being able to focus and concentrate on the task in hand is an important skill set that needs to be nurtured and is not just decided by your genes. Irrespective of your ability to concentrate, participating in an Essex Outdoors residential trip can improve young people’s level of concentration; with the most striking levels of improvement often being seen in the young people who have struggled the most.
