I’m sure there is plenty advice to be had but I realize this forum is American based, so I was wondering if there are any Australian members on this forum who could offer me some advice/assistance in getting started karting in Australia.
Otherwise any advice is welcome! Here is a little bit of information if its helpful for anyone.
I am 15 years old (turning 16 in November). I was thinking of joining the (Beginner) KA4 Senior class and getting myself the appropriate kart, I was wondering what my best option would be (IAME KA100 Reedjet or Yamaha KT100J / new or second hand etc.). I have driven go karts on just a couple of occasions but I am quite competent with learning to control speed, acceleration and breaking when in a new kart. I am very competitive and confident at the wheel, but safety is always my priority. Any direction as to where to purchase a kart or what to look for when buying a kart would be awesome – this is same for protective equipment
(Keep in mind I don’t have an amazing budget but I do understand karting is an expensive sport.)
Thanks for any assistance at all!
