Getting started without go karting

1 comment

Hey Zach, you said 99% of racers get started in go karting. I was wondering about the other 1% and how they get started. Are there other ways to gain popularity without getting involved in the go kart world?

That other 1% are absurdly wealthy kids who can afford to pay their way straight to cars.


I recommend that all beginners start with karting because it is the cheapest and simplest way to start. The advantage in starting in karts is that if you are good, car teams will give you better deals when you are ready to move up to cars. On the other hand, another advantage is that if you are not good you will have paid much less to find that out in karting than you would have if you paid to jump straight to cars.
