What is Go Karting?

Go karting is the sport of driving go karts. Go karts are fundamentally a small-scale four-wheeled vehicle, not too dissimilar from a car. In fact, go karts share many of the same characteristics of a car including: a steering wheel, tires, brakes, an engine/motor, and gas/brake pedals. 

The major difference with go karts is that they’re usually stripped down to just those major parts without all the luxuries that your road car has. So you often won’t see things like suspension, plush seating, a stereo, and so on.

What Does a Go Kart Look Like?

Go karts can come in all shapes and (small) sizes. Some are made to look like smaller versions of road-going cars, while others look like miniature race cars. Above you see a picture of what an adult go kart looks like at Adventure Park. 

The go kart is low to the ground and features small wheels/tires, a steering wheel, throttle and brake pedal, seat, and a roll hoop for safety. 

Go karts tend to be substantially lighter and have a shorter wheelbase than your average car. This means they can accelerate quickly and are much easier to drive. As a result, they’re also a lot more fun to drive than most cars!
