Karting: Karting is an extremely popular form of competitive racing - many professional race car drivers began their career in karting and even still compete in this challenging form of racing today. The Karts are Bowman Race Karts and feature tubular chrome-moly chassis with a Kelgate self adjusting hydraulic disk brake, alloy wheels and slick racing tires. The karts are powered by Honda's state of the art GX200 engine. The engine is unrestricted which allows this 200cc four cycle motor to rev up to a quick 5,500rpm. The karts achieve speeds of 30-35 mph and at just an inch off the ground most drivers experience the sensation of driving up to 70mph.
