Do you like the exhilaration of speed and competition? You’ve come to the right place. Because here, you can find out about the way most, if not all, of the world’s professional race car drivers started out in the field and earned the reputations that allow them to compete in some of the world’s biggest auto racing events: a sport and recreational activity known as “karting,” or “go-karting.”
Named after a special kind of race vehicle—the kart, also known as the go-kart—karting is an activity that can be enjoyed in and of itself, as well as used as the perfect training for making it into professional car races. On this site, you can easily familiarize yourself with the exciting activity of karting, learn about different types of karts and the advantages and disadvantages of each type, find out who’s in charge of organizing the most high-profile karting races and events worldwide, and even learn about the next level of racing: auto races, and their various kinds (NASCAR, Formula One, etc.)
Finally, you’ll also find some general resources for both karting fans and car race enthusiasts and race car collectors, such as links to popular magazines, more informative websites, and the major players and national and international associations in charge of organizing and conducting karting and auto races worldwide. We hope that whether you’re brand new to karting, kart racing, and auto races, or already have some experience and interest in these fields, you’ll find something of educational and entertainment value by browsing through the additional pages above!
