Which is the fastest go kart?
When you think about karting, you think about going fast; racing, speeding round corners and ultimately beating your mates! There are several manufacturers out there who make go-karts and have been doing so far years, enabling you to drive comfortably and confidently all the while feeling like you’re flying.
Different karts are good for different reasons, different ages and in different categories, for example drivers aged between 11-17 Tonykart, Compkart/Fullerton and Mad Croc are among the most popular chassis in the UK and particularly the Compkart/Fullerton as it is said to be slightly easier to drive than the others. In the senior category, British champions Danny Keirle and Kartmasters winner Ben Barnicoat both achieved their championships on the Fullerton (also branded as Compkart).
In short circuit gearbox karting, which has a slightly more niche market but often recognised as the closest you can get to F1 levels of performance Sodikarts always rise to the top. Sodikart have never shied away from pushing the envelope and being innovative with their design and concepts, and they always deliver in this category – which is why we use them!
And they’re not just any karts, they are the fastest indoor karts in the UK!
The Sodi SR-5 karts feature 270cc Honda Engines and include a new adjustable pedal system as well as front and rear headlights! They also provide extra comfort, as the new pedals can be adjusted by you, the driver and mean that you can adjust them to adapt to your height, leg length and feet size. Your legs will also be protected with the new integral floor covering. Not only this but you’ll be able to adjust your seat, allowing your driving position to be improved – which we all know, is paramount for peak performance on the track!
At Absolutely Karting, we are serious about providing you with the best possible experience on the track. To do this, we always make sure our karts and track are in tip-top condition by keeping on top of maintenance and wear and tear, but every now and again we also like to treat ourselves and our customers to some new kit, so this month, we’re really excited to introduce to you, our brand-spanking new karts!!!
