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.

"Dirt Track" racing is also called "Speedway", "Dirt Oval" or just "Circle Track". Check with your local track or kart shop where this form of karting is practiced. Some parts of the US and Canada only offer Sprint, while others primarily have Oval racing. Each form of karting demands its own chassis, engines, tires and safety equipment.

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR ”I recall three young gentlemen at Ascot Park in Gardena, California, who seemed to be struggling with their setup. This was when my first book on karting came out in 1984. The trio bought one of the books and the next race their lap times dropped dramatically. Tony Pedregon came to me and said: 'We did not even know what stagger was'.”

 A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR, JEAN GENIBREL

 My karting and racing experience spans nearly four decades. As a professional journalist, racer, and author I have remained focused on the procedures a new karter must go through to ease his way into the sport. Using the information in my books will take a new karter from the first buy at the kart shop, or on the internet, to the front row in a fraction of the time others have taken. In 'KARTING! A Complete Introduction' I offer never before available information for the prospective Karter in a well-paced learning curve. The book is the singular source for karting information to guide the new or prospective kart racer through all the buying decisions and to get him to his first race ready to go. From choosing the karting class, the division, the kart chassis and go kart engine type, to finding the correct safety equipment such as karting gloves, suits, and helmets, it is all there
