It teaches the meaning of sportsmanship, fair play by following rules, how to be a good winner or a gracious loser.
It develops coordination, and a sense of timing and independent thinking.
It teaches self-reliance. Once a green flag has dropped, they are on their own.
The spirit of competition also comes along here. They learn to drive hard, but that rules must be observed. Rule infractions may result in disqualification.
Development of knowledge and an appreciation for mechanical devices.
It teaches safe driving skills that are carried on in their teen years on the road. Very few people develop the skill that these children acquire. We believe this level of skill is valuable when they become adult drivers. They learn that there is a place to race an automobile- which is NOT on the public highway systems where so many young adult drivers lose their lives.
It develops a sense of responsibility. Alertness and concern for the safety of others is acquired.
It gives drivers a well-earned right and a sense of pride and accomplishment. They stand taller and are more confident after becoming a proficient Quarter Midget Driver.
