What’s the main thing you need help with to get you started.
Hello - thank you for having me as I am new here! I am looking to get into karting. The main thing I need help with is finding the right karting place. I am looking for a place that offers instruction/training on racing karts. I would also like a place that runs faster karts 60-70mph etc. because I would eventually want to progress to those. I first thought of COTA (wouldn’t mind the 1.5 he drive to COTA as I frequent Austin - if they had a great program.m and I like the facilities there, but I read a post here stating that they canceled their advanced program before it really even started and only do arrive and drive. I found a place online that seems to run faster karts but it’s in Dallas (5hrs away) and that wouldn’t work as I want to go 3-5x per week.
The goal would be to progress to driving the faster karts etc and then hopefully find some competitive racing that would work with my schedule. I would eventually like to race cars on track. I am completely new to track - I have done a track day on a motorcycle, but only one. I did find help is appreciated thank you.
