Discover Your Drive Days will be delivered by skilled TeamSport Chief Instructors, trained by Motorsport UK, the national governing body for motorsport in the UK.  The day aims to leave girls feeling confident in a kart and wanting to continue. Girls need no previous experience of karting or motorsport to participate and will be supported by TeamSport Chief Instructors throughout the day.

Discover Your Drive Karting UK was launched in 2023 across six initial TeamSport venues. Its goal is to support girls to compete is a grassroots level of karting competition and, eventually, consider a place in the British Indoor Karting Championships in Winter 2024. The first year of the programme saw a 265% increase in females participating in the Championships.

If any girls show potential talent after the initial Discover Your Drive Day, they will be invited to learn more about the Discover Your Drive Race Academy, a series of five progressive instructor-led sessions. Building on the foundations of the Discover Your Drive Day, these five coached sessions will equip the girls with the skill and techniques necessary to compete in a junior level of karting.
