How does the Racing Line Trophy Challenge Work? What is it?
Racing Line
On Circuit 112, the racing line changes depending on the car you choose. Some corners you hit a different apex than others and lines can change. We know all of these for each of our cars and of course will show you the best to take.
Starting with a score of 80 (maximum achievable) we will deduct 10 points for each deviation.
Proper track technique is tested here, are you shuffling your hands and the wheel or holding a solid grip with spaced hands?
Great steering can gain you up to 5 points towards your final score.
Controlling your speed through braking is a huge part of track driving. Reaching threshold, trailbraking, locking up, feathering or being jerky can all affect your score here.
Optimum braking can gain you up to 5 points towards your final score.
A heavy right foot won’t earn you any favours here. The correct input, neatly at the right times providing great acceleration and control where necessary wins the day. Upset the weight transfer, loss of grip and under/oversteer affects your score.
Top Throttle control can earn you up to 5 points towards your final score.
 Not an overall reflective score, but a measure of how you collaboratively utilised all your skills on circuit will earn you the best score in Technique. Precision, distance from apexes, hitting cones, fluid weight transition for optimum grip…
Your Technique can earn you up to 5 points towards your final score.
How does the Drift Trophy Challenge Work? What is it?

Corners Drifted

The Memphis Circuit (our drift track) allows for 4 graded corners per lap.
You will be drifting a total of 8 corners.
A corner will be logged as a success if over 70% of that corner was drifted.
You start at 80 points (maximum achievable) and we take off 5 points for each corner that wasn’t over 70% drifted.

Linking Drifts

Smoothly linking drifts throughout your 2 laps can earn you up to 5 points towards your final score.

Clipping Points

A good line, touching apexes our outside clipping points on the track can earn you up to 5 points towards your final score.

Driver Control

Good throttle control, not locking brakes up, steering inputs, hand positioning and smooth movements can earn you up to 5 points towards your final score.

Drifting Technique

Reacting with required inputs (eg: extending drifts by use of handbrake or feint) or performing a perfectly executed drift without reaction required, entering drifts at the correct speed and with great execution can earn you up to 5 points towards your final score.


Total Score

The total score will be given to you out of 100 by your instructor, on a card, at the end of your experience.
This score is not negotiable.

So what happens when I’ve done the Trophy Challenge and got my score?

1. Show off what you’ve got.

2. Prove how good you are by comparing your score against not only your peers,
but our instructors and our resident karting champion

3. Get in next to your instructor, score them!


Engage in fun rivalry and collab with other influencers
to see who can earn the best score.

Create a huge amount of unique content on site, meeting other people, checking out cars and having a great social time in a unique setting.
