is the worlds most affordable form of motorsport and is popular with young drivers as well as adults.
Males and Females of all ages can enjoy this sport with children as young as 7 years old competing behind the wheel. Karting teaches these children basic driving skills well before they are able to obtain their road licence, which in turn makes them much safer and advanced drivers when it becomes time for them to start using our public roads.
