“Well of course a lot of us on the forum are armchair experts. If it costs $225,000/yr to race a go-kart how many can afford to race? ”
The true answer is, “Not many of us.” But, most dont run a full throttle National level schedule. They pepper in a few big races here and there. I can expect to spend in the $100k-$150k range if we hold to our planned schedule. It is tough because we are in AZ where we only have one big race this year that isnt Rotax. I have been told that bandoleros are less expensive as well as some full size cars. However, my kid has no ambitions to be a race car driver. He likes hanging out with his buddies racing go karts… So, what is a guy to do?
