QMA Karting Academy for children
Qatar Motorsports Academy is born from the need to create a quarry of young promising riders and drivers in Qatar, wherein, it is comprised of 2 distinct sections- the QMA Karting Academy and the QMA Motorcycling Academy.
The QMA Karting Academy is the first of its’ kind in Qatar, with an official launch date in 2022, the idea behind the academy is to nurture the talent of young go kart drivers so that they can become competitive professionals on a national and international level.
QMA Karting Academy has training facilities located inside the Lusail circuit so that our drivers can achieve the best results and experiences from the environment they are exposed to, whether it be on the technical area or on the go karting track.
With our methods of training, the drivers will get to learn go karting from the very beginning, step by step in order to continuously improve their techniques while also learning about all aspects of safety on the track, moreover, they will become more physically fit and develop a well-rounded motorsport mentality.

The QMA Karting Academy will be made up of young drivers between the ages of 5 and 9 years old with a maximum height of 132cm (due to the size of the bambino kart). The training exercises will be done in several stages; First laurel, bronze laurel, silver laurel and gold laurel. All drivers regardless of age or karting experience will start with the first laurel. Each laurel will be assessed accordingly before moving onto the next stage. Each stage is a combination of four main points; Racing driving, Safety and regulations on a circuit, Safety and regulations on the road and Mechanical workshop
The program will also be made up of theoretical classes presented in the driver briefing area. Furthermore, we will add notions of physical preparation and nutrition, thus completing a very high level and well-rounded program.
Classes will be 2 to 3 times per week, dates and times to be confirmed.
