Ice Karting Is A Real Thing And It's All I Want To Do Right Now

I have one problem in my life (and ONLY one problem, don't talk about the Other Thing), and that is that I both don't have an ice-racing race car, nor do I live near an ice racing track, and also, it is winter. But I just heard about ice karting, and now it is all I want to do forever and ever into eternity. » 2/03/15 12:40pm 2/03/15 12:40pm

Kart Racing In The Rain Is Drifting Insanity At Its Finest

It's hard enough to keep a regular car pointed in the right direction on track in the rain. What about a tiny little go-kart with dinky wheels, no suspension, and your butt mere inches off the ground? Oh, yes. This is nuts. » 12/12/14 10:20pm 12/12/14 10:20pm

ChumpCar Does Qualifying In Go-Karts To See Who's Really The Fastest

Sub-$500 endurance racecars aren't really set up to lay down a blisteringly quick qualifying lap time without leaving the track in a catastrophic cloud of oil smoke. So, ChumpCar let its Central Region Chumpionship participants qualify on the go-kart track instead. » 11/04/14 7:15pm 11/04/14 7:15pm

This Is What Happens When About 83,000 Go Karts Crash Into Each Other

Combine a wet tight track with a ton of competitive kart racers and this is what you get: A track blocking crash of approximately 83,000 or so go karts. » 7/22/14 12:52pm 7/22/14 12:52pm

Loon Hulks Out At Go Kart Track, Flips Kart On Guy, Starts Brawl

This is Crossroads Speedway, a karting track in, surprise, Florida. Or maybe Oklahoma? It doesn't really matter. What matters is that wherever it is, a pocket of raw chaos just collided with it, causing near record-levels of apeshit as a guy flips a kart with a driver in it, and starts a huge melée. » 6/06/14 2:42am 6/06/14 2:42am

The (Very) Short List of Potential American Drivers for Gene Haas in…

An American F1 team! Or the next best thing; a rich American with FIA permission to field an F1 team. USF1 taught us those are not the same thing, but if successful Haas Formula will need a pair of (hopefully American) drivers. Like NASA, the F1 skillset required to ride the rocket is extremely specific, leaving… » 4/13/14 5:15pm 4/13/14 5:15pm

Karting Through The Streets Of The Isle Of Man Is Just Nuts

Racing anything down public streets is nuts. No guardrails, no runoff areas, no nothing. Doing it in 250cc SuperKarts, with no safety cages and no seatbelts, is even crazier. Doing all that on the Isle of Man in the rain, then, must be the peak of fun. » 3/28/14 1:00pm 3/28/14 1:00pm

CCC Manhattan 2013 Round-Up

It's been a good year at Classic Car Club Manhattan. A healthy dose of racing, in many different flavors, kept us on our toes during the summer months. While off-track we were busy driving the GT40 through tunnels, exploring the countryside in search of the ever-elusive 'perfect road', and destroying jbh's GoPros. » 12/08/13 5:26pm 12/08/13 5:26pm

All I Want To Do Is Go Russian Ice Shifter Karting

I don't know how I'm going to get myself to Rezh, in the plains of central Russia, but that's where they held this go kart race on ice, and that's the only place I want to be this winter. » 11/12/13 1:00pm 11/12/13 1:00pm

Here Is The Ultimate Go Kart Drift Session

Here's what you have: A shifter kart. A bunch of GoPros. A pro driver. An empty race track. An old set of tires. What do you do? You drift like mad. » 10/02/13 2:07pm 10/02/13 2:07pm

Kreating an Obsession Through Karting? I hope so.

I never bought comic books. I wasn't too much into Cowyboys and Indians, though I did have horses and was a pretty good rider. I didn't play football. But I scraped every nickel I had together to buy the latest Car and Driver, Road and Track, and other car magazines. I'm not sure why, my Dad liked cars, but it drove… » 8/04/13 7:01pm 8/04/13 7:01pm

Why You Should Go Karting This Weekend

Full disclosure: we attended the "Lime Rock Park Mini-ALMS Northeast Grand Prix" at On Track Karting in Brookfield, CT last week. It was an event setup to promote the upcoming American Le Mans Series race at Lime Rock Park this weekend, which you all should attend (as if you have something better to do than BBQ,… » 7/05/13 1:57pm 7/05/13 1:57pm

Who doesn't like go-karting? Heartless, soulless monsters, that's who. And that's not us. So we want your help in identifying the best karting tracks across the USA. Know of any unusually fast karts? Amazing turns? Snack bars that serve beer in a mug made of pizza? Now's your chance to tell the world. » 4/26/13 5:45pm 4/26/13 5:45pm

How Dare Audi Not Let Journalists Win Their Go Kart Race

At the Detroit Auto Show and other shows like it, automakers tend to invite journalists to over-the-top dinners and events so they can schmooze and build relationships. Sometimes there are bands, other times celebrities, and there is always excellent food. Automakers have pampered us for so long that it is now… » 1/17/13 3:00pm 1/17/13 3:00pm

Dirt Tracking Kart Upshifts At Full Oppo

Shifter karts on racing slicks are meant for tight, twisty, and certainly paved tracks. One hoon we know from dirt tracking a Camaro took some karts offroad with spectacular results. » 8/16/12 1:00pm 8/16/12 1:00pm

Watch A Go Kart Racer Hit The Pavement At 70 MPH

Karting is the purest form of motorsports that you can participate in today. There is no ABS, no traction control, and no power steering. Instead, there is a seat (without a seat belt), a small motor to your right, and a helmet on your head. » 7/25/12 9:30am 7/25/12 9:30am
