Our Mission:

Our mission is to promote the sport of karting and to be a resource of karting information for those looking to Get Started.  We focus on karting news and information from the Northeast which we consider to be Illinois to Tennessee to North Carolina to Maine. 

We believe that if the event promoters and series owners work together, it will allow for a more successful racing experience for everyone involved.

Get Started:

How do I get started in Karting?
FIRST. I would recommend you go down to one of your local events to see exactly what go kart racing is all about. Meet the people who run the event. They will be able to give you some great information on how to get started. Talk with some of the competitors to get their perspective on the sport. It is a family oriented sport that is a great way to spend the day together.
 
SECOND. Make sure you meet with the vendors. They will be your best resource to help you get the equipment you will need to start racing. You will need a go kart, driver safety equipment (see the list below) and a way to get back and forth to the track. Some people have trailers, while other use a pickup truck or small van.
 
THIRD. Figure out what class you will be competing in. Competition classes are based on age and engine type. The younger drivers have less options than the adult drivers. It really comes down to how much of a racing budget you have. In most cases, the bigger your budget, the faster you will be able to go. See the list of classes below.
