From time to time we can dream of sitting behind the wheel of a large shining racecar. Speed down the long stretches and hurl the car into the bends. But the dream falls apart as we remember that we are not millionaires, and hardly good enough drivers either.
Well, we better give a little extra on the highway instead, when we think the police are out of view. A poor satisfaction I know, and not suitable for shaking the speed itch out of the right foot. It might even be dangerous.
But there are remedies for that speed itch. If you can rustle up about 600$, are over 18 and have got a drivers license you can race. you can go go-cart racing. A type of racing that surely will becomme more and more popular as the years pass.
As the go-cart sport reached this country a couple of years ago, a lot of people shook their head at this strange little racer. But a few enthusiast kept the sport alive and soon a lot of others followed, and now everyone want to give it a try.
So alright, it may look like an old iron bed with cartwheel wheels and as there are no suspensions it is like riding an ironing board. And although there is nothing close to a body, it is still a racer.
The speed isn’t much to brag about, but the acceleration is lightning quick. Races are being held both locally and internationally, real races where only the best man wins.
As with most popular things the co-cart sport has developed in strides. so in spite of the fact that it is a young sport one can race in many different classes
It was Racing Car Club that introduced the sport in Scandinavia and they are putting down a lot of hard work to make the sport grow.
Should you still be in doubt about whether formel-K race is a real race, we can tall you that the king of motor sports him self, Sterling Moss, have tried it and he did like it.
