What is Karting?

Karting, called Go-Kart or Kart, is a track racing event with small rear-engined, four-wheeled cars. Karting is where motorsport starts, it is considered as the little brother of track races. Karting is exploding in popularity everywhere around the world and represents one of the best forms of amateur racing to become involved in. Karting, besides being a nice hobby, is also a good base for other motorsports. Many rally and formula drivers started with karting. Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton are good examples.
