There are some risks associated with any type of motorsports, however karting has a good safety record due to the diligence of the people involved
with the sport.
The organizations have done a good job in implementing rules to protect
sprint karts have FIA crash test bodywork that is designed to absorb impacts
enduro karts are required to have dual braking systems
oval karts have bodywork designed to protect the drivers feet.
These are just three examples out of hundreds to protect the drivers and crews
at the race track.
In addition all karts are inspected before the race to be sure they are race ready.
Racers must have proper safety equipment including:
|Driving suit or jacket
You will be asked to sign a waiver of liability when registering.
Familiarize yourself with the insurance coverage the track provides, as some
local tracks might not have insurance. Anyone entering the pit area must purchase a pit
pass to gain admittance.
You must attend the driver's meeting before the race begins. Be sure to
pay attention to the starter's instructions and what each flag means. Most of
all remember to have fun!
