Boys and girls — start your engines

Greenwich residents Christopher Neville and Daniel Manuli recently got their motors running at the Advanced Junior Racing and Junior Racing summer camps, respectively, at Grand Prix New York/Spins Bowl in Mount Kisco, N.Y.

The Advanced Junior Racing Summer Camp program teaches junior drivers the basics of driving and racing. During the week-long racing program, campers work their way through a course curriculum which includes learning how to identify and follow racing lines, kart control, passing and defending.

Campers enjoy five days of high speed wheel-to-wheel instruction and racing, along with other recreational activities including the iRacing Sim Room, bowling and the arcade.

Grand Prix New York’s five day advanced camp is specifically designed for drivers ranging from the ages of seven to 16 with experience in kart racing or other types of driving. Under the guidance and supervision of qualified instructors, participants develop advanced, competitive driving skills like maintaining racing lines, passing exercises and defending their position — techniques geared toward reducing lap times. Participants actually drive and race against each other, acquiring driving techniques and skills and learning practical lessons.

Grand Prix New York also held a five-day Novice Camp, which is specifically designed for drivers ranging from the ages of seven to 16 with little or no experience in karting or driving.

Upon successful completion of the camp week, the junior drivers are qualified to drive in Grand Prix’s Junior Racing Leagues and other competitive junior racing events that will put their skills to the test.
