The similarity between amusement park go-karts and purpose built racing karts is about the same as the Chevy or Ford sitting in your garage and the stock cars raced in NASCAR. Dollar for dollar, pound for pound, karting is one of the best performance/thrill values in motorsports. Karting offers something for every wannabe racer. From entry level lower horsepower to high performance karts capable of 0 – 60 times in less than 4 seconds and generating close to 2 G’s of cornering force. Kart racing is the fastest growing form of adult motorsports.
Using rigid suspensions, a solid rear axle and no power steering, driving or racing a kart hard and fast is one of the most physically demanding forms of 4-wheel motorsports. Racing on road course tracks ranging from a ½ mile to a mile in length, speeds can exceed 80 mph and drivers experience the thrill of real wheel to wheel and nose to tail racing with their backsides an inch off the ground. Kart racing can be found across the country from local club level groups to regional and national traveling series.
If you agree that growing up is optional and you’re not ready to retire to the couch and the remote, then you should look into karting.
