Karting is considered by many to be the purest form of motor sports.  A competition level go Kart is made up of only a small number of components that effect overall performance.  This keeps competitors on an equal level, generating close wheel to wheel racing and places the emphasis on driving skill. Kart racing is for all ages. Whether you are 5 or 85, there are classes of Karting for every age group.

Your first step should be to visit your local track. Be sure to get pit passes so you can be where the action is.  Get a good look at the various types of karts up close. Meet and visit with the owners, drivers and track officials. You will find that are very friendly and are eager to help those interested in getting involved in this great sport. At the HOT Kart Club, we have classes competing in all age groups, from age 5 and up on our 3/8 mile, 6 turn, sprint asphalt course.

Karting is an incredibly fun, family oriented sport. Before you know it, you’ll have an extended family at the track or in the circuit you choose.  The majorities of the members in your club or circuit are incredibly helpful, and are more than willing to help new karters with tips and mechanical help.

All tracks and clubs have regulations in regards to various types of Kart classes and required safety.  Before purchasing your equipment, we recommend that you contact a local club official about these regulations. Junior classes are structured by age, which have rules to control the performance and speeds they generate.  Safety gear requirements include a full face Snell approved helmet, and abrasive resistant jacket or suit, gloves, gloves and a neck collar.  Chest protectors are required for drivers 12 years of age and younger.
