'KARTING A COMPLETE INTRODUCTION'
A Book by Multiple Award Winning Author Jean Genibrel
For the Expecting Karter and Novice
THE NEW APPROACH TO ENTERING KART RACING
Make your karting experience rewarding and long lasting.
Nothing is "secret" in racing. There are only some things you do not know and need to learn. This could take years. "Karting a Complete Introduction" details all the information a prospective or new karter needs to know to start in go kart racing.
THIS KARTING BOOK HOLDS NOTHING BACK! IT OFFERS THE GREATEST AMOUNT OF PRACTICAL INFORMATION EVER ASSEMBLED ON KARTING AND GO KART RACING TO HELP THE PROSPECTIVE KARTER ENTER KARTING EASILY AND ECONOMICALLY WITH THE MOST VALUABLE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT AVAILABLE-KNOWLEDGE
HOW DO I GET INTO KARTING? Chapters include all the answers a novice or prospective Karter could have: What kind of equipment do I need? The book includes a complete list of all the parts, spares, tools, etc that you will need for your first outing.
WHERE can I race my go-kart? The book includes a list of tracks and Internet links for where to go kart racing legally and safely.
With WHOM should I race my go-kart? Clubs all over the US and CANADA hold weekly events in Sprint, Dirt Oval, and Paved Oval track karting. Others are into Vintage Karting and some like Road Racing. Keep in mind that each one of those forms of karting requires its own equipment and tires. The book helps you choose a class to fit your budget, your age, experience, and aspirations.
WHAT kinds of engines are used in karting? The most common four-strokes include Briggs & Stratton and Honda go-kart engines. The two strokes (often called two-cycles) include primarily the Yamaha KT100 with a clutch and a “Can” for exhaust and the Rotax. The Shifter engines include primarily the Honda five-speed. There is also the “TAG” classes and engines that again require specific engines and clutch types. Again, you do not want to show up at a Sprint race with an Oval track chassis and engine or arrive at an oval race with a Shifter Kart.
WHY do you want to race go karts? Answering this question and others will place the rest of the equation in perspective. Reading the book will set you on the path to success by being prepared and ready with all the stuff you need to go karting.
THE MOST VALUABLE PORTION OF THE BOOK RESTS ON THE LISTS OF EVERYTHING YOU WILL NEED BEFORE YOU GO KARTING SO YOU CAN FOCUS ON YOUR FIRST RACE. Just take the list to your kart shop or online store.
