CarKraft relaunched in Northamptonshire
The CarKraft initiative, a safety workshop for drivers of all ages, has re-launched thanks to an injection of funding from Northamptonshire County Council and Northamptonshire Police.
CarKraft, which had been disbanded as a result of Government funding cuts, now boasts a new website. The Prince Michael Award winning scheme offers a mix of workshops, allowing participants to experience driving on simulated, adverse road conditions on a state of the art, purpose built facility at Silverstone. The tutors running the scheme are all qualified motoring professionals with many years’ experience of motor racing and advance driving techniques.
The CarKraft driver improvement scheme was first launched in 2001 and initially targeted pre- and young drivers aged 15 - 24yrs. Since then more than 3,000 people have benefited from the scheme.
The new-look CarKraft has been expanded to include non-drivers aged 15-21 years, and licence holders of all ages from across the UK.
