SUPER KARTS AUSTRALIA
Superkarting is an exhilarating and high performance form of motor racing. Ayrton Senna responded when asked about his most satisfying races “it was in karting, and it was pure driving,..pure racing”.
Likened to a miniature Formula1 or a GP Bike with four wheels, the Superkart is not a hybrid of racing car and go-kart, it is a purpose-built race vehicle in its own right. With average power to weight ratio of 2.9, Superkarts hold outright lap records at many race tracks world-wide. Superkarting is a high performance, affordable motor sport. Sensation to cost is second to no other form of motor racing.
With classes for 6 speed 250cc, 125cc GP motorcycle engines, and RM125cc non-gearbox, most fitted with 4 wheel disk brakes, full bodywork with rear wing - Superkarting is not an entry to motor sport, it is a progression to a more dynamic and affordable form of motor sport for many sprint karters, motorbike and car racers.
With a low centre of gravity and high power to weight, superkarts are responsive to small adjustments. One thing that makes the racing experience so exciting is that you feel like you're part of the superkart. Superkart races are held at the premier motorsport circuits throughout Australia as well as in Europe,the UK and North America. Age and gender are no barrier in superkart racing - aspiring young talented drivers hone their long circuit and gear changing skills here, and superkarting often has fathers and sons racing together.
