What is Kart RacingKart racing is one of the fastest growing forms of motorsports in the U.S. and extremely popular around the world. You can begin racing at age 5 and continue well into retirement. Many participate out of enjoyment while others use it as a stepping stone into a professional racing career. Most current Formula 1 drivers and many Nascar drivers started with racing karts, and many still use them for training during off season. Kart racing is relatively affordable and allows for more seat time than any other racing vehicle. Due to the wide array of classes available it is easy to find something that will fit your budget.Kart Racing is a great family sport that everyone can get involved with. Some families have multiple drivers which can include, dad, mom, grandpa, etc. But whether you are driving, assisting, or a spectator you won t be disappointed. It s a great way to spend the weekend with the family. It teaches good sportsmanship, mechanical know how, mental strength, and offers fun physical activity. And keep in mind you don t have to race to enjoy karting. Many kart owners just show up to open track days to beat their time, burn off a little steam, tinker with equipment, and get some physical activity.
What does it takeOne consideration before buying is seeing if your local track offers arrive and drive sessions. These are typically much slower karts but it will get your feet wet. A relatively modest budget can get you started, but the initial investment is up to you. As a beginner, a used kart in good condition (no more than 5 years) is an option worth consideration. A used kart can run between $1,500 to $7,000. For club membership and race fees, you should consider another few hundred dollars per year. Most local tracks require a racing jacket or suit, a helmet, and gloves at minimum. You can expect to spend $400 and up for safety gear. Expect around maybe $500 to $2,000 more for spare parts, extra tires, and professional engine maintenance for a season. Of course those costs can get more expensive in some classes of karting. As a beginner, these amounts should be sufficient. You should also compare prices and options available for a new set-up.Transporting a kart can be done in the back of a pick-up, a small trailer, or the back of a van. We have also seen them in the back of larger SUV s, station wagons, and even strapped to roofs. For working area a small shed or garage will work well. Karts can be stored vertical against a wall if you are constrained for storage leaving a foot print of about 26 x56 . A small set of metric tools will also help you get started on the right foot. See the Recommended Equipment tab for a list of equipment you may want to get started.

Buying Used Karts As a kart shop assisting many customers with used karts we want to advise you to be very careful when buying one. Buying a used kart may seem affordable at first but fixing it up can be very expensive. Keep in mind that most racing organizations have class rules and you want to make sure what your buying is legal. As technology changes so do motors and specs. Brakes also require maintenance even while not in use (brake fluid, brake seals, etc.)do wear. Whether you buy used or new we want to assist you in your karting venture. We don't want the new karter to get frustrated and give up before they even start.
