I always wanted to race go karts, but my family couldn’t afford it when I was a kid and I couldn’t when I became an adult. I’m at a point in my life where I can finally afford to fund my childhood dream of kart racing.
I’m 35. The classes at my local track are 35+ masters for 125cc TaG or 15+ seniors for 4 cycle.
I’ve found a good deal on karts for each option. I know that the 4 cycle is a good option for beginners, but would prefer to go the TaG route if I won’t be going in over my head. I used to ride dirt bikes quite a bit and have raced on a high speed electric indoor kart league. I’m about 195 lbs if that makes much difference on which way to go.
I also have experience working on both 2 stroke and 4 stroke engines so I should be ok there whichever direction I decide to go.
Does anyone have any opinions or insight on where to start?
