THE owners of Weston’s Grand Pier are launching a junior karting school.

Children aged eight to 15 who enrol will be taken through beginner, intermediate and advanced driver training.

Lessons can now be booked on either Saturday or Sunday mornings from 9.30-10.30am.

Each child will be issued with their own driving licence, which charts their progression through the school and includes ‘endorsements’ for bad driving. They will be trained in safety, control and race technique.

The racing school will also be staging its own championship held over a series of rounds for drivers who have completed the advanced training course.

It will be launched on February 5 and the price is £25 per lesson or courses of three lessons can be purchased for £60. For more details log on to
