  • 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.

In 2005 the founder of the company, Mr. Antonio Zamperla, became the first Italian to be inducted into the IAAPA Hall of Fame by virtue of his significant contribution to the entire industry, joining other pioneers such as Walt Disney, George Ferris and Walter Knott.
