Ottawa Stop Added to Cross-Canada Drivers' Safety Education Tour for Kids (CNW Group/Toyota Canada Inc.)

kartSTART is a fun and exciting way for kids to establish a solid foundation for safe and responsible driving habits well before they're old enough to get their driver's license.

Led by retired professional race car driver Russ Bond and funded by Toyota, the kartSTART program is a truly unique half-day course that gives kids between 10 and 16 years old the opportunity to learn some driving skills and vehicle safety fundamentals using a car just their size – a go-kart!

Photo and interview opportunities (with instructors and participants) will be available. Media can also try it out for themselves!

WHEN

New to this year's program is a professionally-designed go-kart made accessible for kids with physical disabilities so that they can drive, too. The accessible go-kart looks the same as the other karts, but with hand-controlled throttle and braking incorporated into the design of the steering wheel.

kartSTART presented by Toyota would like to invite you to come and check out the program, and test drive our new accessible go-kart!
