I think I’ve caught the karting bug but the problem is… I’m in a karting wasteland in Albuquerque New Mexico. There’s a decent indoor karting place in town, they run Sodi brand rental karts but as for dedicated outdoor sprint kart type tracks, it appears the only other place in town went out of business a couple years ago. However we do have the Sandia motor speedway which you can do track days at and they will allow karts on their road coarse so I could practice if I bought one.
Anyway, I’ve been lurking and absorbing the advice that one should purchase a kart brand that is supported in the area but if there isn’t really a place in town that does so… I’m not sure where to go from there. I could try to get a sodi and see if the indoor karting place might help me with maintenance? Anyone from the New Mexico Albuquerque area or semi-near (ie Colorado Texas or Arizona) have any thoughts on how to go about it? It looks like the closest place that sells/services karts to me is Colorado Springs area which is a 5 hour drive.
