Your best bet is to go out to the track when the SoCal Sprinters are there to understand what you need to get started. They have a race there tomorrow, Saturday, July 12. Clubs are the entry level to the sport. There should be at least one or two kart shops there, and racers are always willing to provide their advice to getting started. The Los Angeles Karting Championship races at the CalSpeed Karting Center. That is more of a regional event, bringing in some more teams and more talented drivers. CalSpeed also has a race series in karts very similar to what you find at the indoor track. Their Super Series races tomorrow, Saturday July 12. Check that out. It’s a lot of guys you just love racing and don’t want to bother owning their own stuff.
