    Kart racing or karting is a variant of motorsport road racing with small, open-wheel, four-wheeled vehicles called karts, go-karts, or gearbox/shifter karts depending on the design. They are usually raced on scaled-down circuits. Karting is commonly perceived as the stepping stone to the higher ranks of motorsports, for example Ginetta Juniors, FIA Formula 4, FIA Formula 3, FIA Formula 2 and FIA Formula 1, with former F1 champions such as Sebastian Vettel, Nico Rosberg, Ayrton Senna, Lewis Hamilton and Michael Schumacher beginning their careers in karting. Karts vary widely in speed and some (known as Superkarts) can reach speeds exceeding , while recreational go-karts intended for the general public may be limited to lower speeds.

Go-karts come in all shapes and forms, from motorless models to high-powered racing machines. Some, such as Superkarts, are able to beat racing cars or motorcycles on long circuits. Gravity racers, usually referred to as Soap Box Derby carts, are the simplest type of go-karts. They are propelled by gravity, with some races taking place down a single hill. Many recreational karts can be powered by four-stroke engines or electric motors, while racing karts use a two-stroke or, rarely, higher powered four-stroke engines. Most of them are single seater but some recreational models can accommodate a passenger. In some countries, go-karts can be licensed for use on public roads often referred to as street tracks. Typically there are some restrictions, e.g. in the European Union a go-kart on the road needs head light (high/low beam), tail lights, a horn and indicators, and their power must not exceed .

  • Off road go-kart

    Riding a go-kartOff Road Karting uses a four-wheeled powered vehicle designed for off road use as opposed to the longer established activities of racing go-karts used for racing on a paved road circuit. Off road karting is now a well established and popular activity with a burgeoning range of vehicles, options and adherents. Just as the automobile is undergoing evolutionary changes, noticeably in the field of "off road" use, the smaller recreational vehicles called "go-karts" have spawned a new generation of vehicle for off road use. The origins of using a go-kart sized vehicle for off road use undoubtedly had many stages of development and claimants whose homemade vehicles were "the first" off road go-karts. However, as concerns manufactured products it seems the first was from Honda who released in 1977 a vehicle they called the Odyssey, essentially an "off road" go-kart with a 250 cc two stroke engine, single seat, and a CVT automatic transmission. The main differences to the traditional racing go-kart were a bigger size of tires (giving greater ground clearance and off road traction) and a roll cage.
