Ricciardo’s Racers is designed for children aged 12–17, learning the basics of motorsport and building their skills through fun exercises in provided cars.

The exercises are designed for small groups to ensure that every child gets a chance to learn new skills from our expert instructors in a safe environment. After they have mastered the basics of car control, they will be ready to progress to participate in club level events. 

Ricciardo’s Racers Junior Drive Days are set up to cater to all skill levels, with individual instruction tailored to a participant's driving experience.

State Government Kids Voucher programs assist children and young people with the costs of participation in sport and active recreation activities. Please refer to the FAQ section at the bottom of this page for more information.
