It’s often described as a stepping stone for kids working they’re way up to auto racing. Although that’s true a large percentage of karters are adults with no intention of moving on to auto racing. You can get into it for a few thousand dollars in a 4 cycle class or spend 10 of thousands on a shifter. No matter which way you go or progress to one thing holds true. It’s easy to get into and easy to do but it’s un believably hard to do really well. It’s the never ending quest for the perfect line, a really good time, a well executed smooth pass or a podium finish that keeps most people in it knowing they will never be completely satisfied with they’re own ability.
