    I’m sure we have some karters on here, and I wanted to ask you guys a few questions. It’ll be like a Karting Info questionnaire, Just fill in the blanks. I’ll do mine:

    When did you start Karting? Late 2010, about October
    How old are you? 14 (Birthday November 21, so almost 15 :)
    Where do you Race? I raced at three tracks so far, PBIR, Homestead, Miller Motorsports Park
    What Chassis do you use? CRG Black Star
    What Engine do you use? Rotax Jr./Sr. (Rebuilt by Legree)
    Sponsors? My dads architecture company, and…. yeah thats it
    Your best finish? 1st at local race in Palm Beach (Mixed Class Race, won overall in a Jr.)
    What are your future plans? We have a Porsche 944 Cup car that I will race next year, and after that I’m hoping to get into some kind of open wheeled racing, like Indy.

    Thats it, If you want to share anymore info, go ahead.

    When did you start Karting? Second week of January in 2009. I organised a karting competition with some fellow bloggers in Birmingham. It was so cold the heater froze. Came 7th… …out of 7.
    How old are you? Mid-20s
    Where do you Race? My bases are the Kurburgring in Sutton-in-Ashfield (11th fastest woman at the moment) and Elk Racing at Newark. I’ve raced at Teamworks in Birmingham and driven at Amen Corner.
    What Chassis do you use? Whatever’s at the track – I’m very much an arrive-and-drive racer.
    What Engine do you use? Ditto.
    Sponsors? None
    Your best finish? 7th. Out of 7. (I’ve also managed 22nd… …out of 22).
    What are your future plans? Get more practise in, and set up some more blogger karting races when the economy picks up.

    My brother races, and he’s a cadet, so I thought I’d give it a go too considering we’d be at the track every meeting, and my friend from school is Welsh Champion of the class.

    When did you start Karting? March 2011
    How old are you? 18
    Where do you Race? Llandow Kart Club, Dunkeswell Kart Club.
    What Chassis do you use? 7Kart MKII
    What Engine do you use? Pair of Honda GX160′s ;)
    Sponsors? Sponsors karting in the UK? Its unusual to find a sponsor that isn’t a family deal!
    Your best finish? 3rd in a 4 hour race, could have done better but we entered for fun and did an extra stop, at Sprint racing my best is 4th.
    What are your future plans? Haven’t got any! I’m only doing it for a bit of fun!

    Ok, I will start to participate in some Pro-Kart races. But the races are waaayyy too expensive, and so far in 2011 only two or three races have been done.

    Well first off, where are you from? How old are you and what exactly are you looking to get into? Theres a lot of different classes and many different engines, many of them being age specific. Also, every country has its own series, some have a bigger attendance than others. I’ll be glad to help you out!
