The F Series is a great regional series but I wouldn’t start there. That series is for the experienced racer not someone new to the sport. You can search for tracks in your area here: https://www.kartpulse.com/tracksandseries/map Oakland Valley Race Park (www.ovrp.net) is one track/club to look at. Go check out the racing at your local track. I would start with club racing a Briggs and Stratton LO206. The 206 is cheap to own and operate so you can focus on learning to drive.
I will definitely check out OVRP… I was unaware there were so many tracks nearby.
As far as the LO206 goes, what is the most popular chassis this is used with? Or does it vary?
Where do I look for Karts? It seems like RacingJunk has quite a few listed, or are there other retails that typically deal with used karts?
