Hello Everyone my names Konnor, I'm 16 and I'm based in the West Midlands.
I've never raced karts more than the occasional day out with my dad and brother but I've been hooked for months now watching all sorts of racing from F1to karting. I was just wondering how I would get started karting as I know I'm definitely a late starter but I'd love to know if there is any chance of getting into anything competitive in the next couple of years!

Hi Konnor, Its good to hear that you'd like to get into karting. Your best bet it to go along to your local track and get talking to as many people as you can, find out what classes are getting the biggest grids (nothing worse than driving around on your own). As for your age don't worry you've got plenty of years left ahead for racing...I got my first kart when I was 16 and I'm just starting again for the second time round at the ripe old age of 35!! Give us a shout if you've got any more questions. 👍

Always time to get into Karting! I started at 8 and stopped at 16. Now 29 started again!

No matter what your age, if you want to get Karting....get it done!
