Go karts are a popular and affordable way for average people to get a realistic taste of motor racing. From small electric karts that are fun to drive to high-powered machines that are built for speed and off-road racing, there is a go kart that is perfect for anyone who wants to get into this exciting sport.
Electric Go Karts
Electric go karts are a fun way to introduce children to the sport of karting. This style of go kart is not as fast as the more powerful petrol-driven models, but it is much easier to maintain, and refuelling is a simple matter of plugging into a standard power outlet to recharge the battery. Many electric go karts have been modelled to resemble popular cars and are great fun for kids to drive but can be expensive. Buying a used electric go kart is an affordable way to get the kids their first kart.
Most electric or racing go karts require a paved surface or a track to drive on, but there are also off-road go karts that have been built to drive over almost any sort of terrain. These robust machines usually have roll cages to protect the driver and are often powered by lawn mower or motorcycle engines. Many of the spare parts such as tyres are available along with new and used machines at affordable prices.
Racing Go Karts
Serious go kart enthusiasts drive petrol-driven racing karts that have been designed for speed on the track. Many of the world's recognised automotive companies such as Honda and Yamaha manufacture high-quality machines for the race track that utilise similar technology to that used in Formula 1 race cars and can produce speeds in excess of 100 kph. There are many secondhand racing karts for sale across South Africa that make getting into this popular sport more accessible for beginners.
Go karts are a very popular, family-oriented pastime around the world and an easily accessible way to get involved in motor racing. Along with the karts and all of the accessories that you need to get into the sport, there are also go kart tracks across South Africa where you can either drive your own kart or hire one for the day.
