Going Racing A New Karters Handbook (Shown)

Read everything!

There is a wide variety of publications available for new racers today. No matter what "type" of karting you wish to get involved with, there are books, magazines and videos that can help to quickly get you competitive.

Visit your local karting tracks, check out what type of karting is popular in your area. Ask questions! Karters are friendly and most are more than willing to help new racers. At some point each of them were "new karters" themselves...

Practice, practice, practice!

Just like any sport, practice is one of the key essentials to success. Practicing in a noncompetitive environment is vital to learning the ins and outs of racing. Many local tracks set aside several days a week for practice times. The best way to find this out is to call your local Motorsports Center or track.

Be Safe

Any form of racing has risks associated with it. The organizational bodies lay out track rules to protect racers, but it is important to know about any local differences, So ask!

Be sure you always wear the proper safety equipment, including a suit or approved jacket, an approved helmet, driving gloves, and a neck brace. Make sure that your local track has a satisfactory insurance policy! Also, be sure to race only on sanctioned tracks at sanctioned events!


Family Affair

The whole family is involved in karting. Kids, mom, dad, grandma, grampa. There's a class and division out there to fit everyone who wants to race, help or just support "their" racer!

Have Fun

The bottom line in motorsports is the enjoyment of racing. Following safety rules, keeping your cool, and enjoying the adrenaline of racing, are the steps to a safe and fun-filled career in racing.
