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

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.

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
