Hello all.

I've joined I suppose prematurely (as my Son is only 3) as I'm wondering about the likes of Bambino karting etc. As mentioned he's only 3 and currently, we just drive around cones we put in car parks on his Riiroo Max drifts battery kart with a boot full of spare batteries.

My main question is if 6 and competing in bambinos, is it a friendly atmosphere of very competitive and bitchy?

I suppose it's a daft question as they're so young but just wondered if it's a friendly hobby to make friends and have fun?

He is a competitive little lad well as much as a 3-year-old can be and he'll love it I expect but it's a question that's lingered around my head the last few weeks so i thought I'd ask.

I hope you're all well and keeping safe

Regards
Marty

This is a very good question! And it is nice to see that you are considering it from such an early age. Most places can accommodate younger drivers on a smaller track for the fun of it.

But on your question, what I think will make most difference is how you approach it. If you greet and talk to others with a smile, you'll get it back and have loads of fun!

There maybe times when competition is close and fierce, but if you have build your relationship with others on the basis of respect and friendship, should be even greater fun!

Most people are happy to chat and help, when it comes to it, and relations quickly develop.

Good luck!

Exactly this! 👌 🏁

At Bayford (And I'm sure other tracks too!) you'll find most of the kids have a kick about and play etc between racing with eachother. Mums and Dads are usually all to happy to help each other out on the tools etc too. A smile and a wave here and there and a nose in somebody elses pit bay is always welcome 99% of the time.

Don't be fooled it's got a competitive nature to it also, but it's not a race unless everybody makes it out on the track and back in one piece ay? All good sportsmenship most of the time! 😁 👌
