Where do you race, is it just in Wales or do you race around the country? Lets us know how you get on.


Thanks, just my dad & I! I race in the British Superkart Championship so all around the UK, though i'd like to do some European rounds too if I could afford it.

Not yet, its first shakedown unfortunately will be on Friday, the day before my first race weekend, fingers crossed!

Here you go Latebraker. Sorry its taken so long but here are the action shots you wanted:



















In answer to your question; Throttle control is of HUGE importance given the power they produce, but obviously its not as critical as a bike. You dont really get much wheelspin in highspeed corners, but more just hard acceleration out of slower corners.
