Karting is the affordable motor sport!
new to the sport of karting? Are you contemplating joining a club to go
racing? Are you a karter needing a change in direction?
Dave at AKS is more than happy to assist with your initial
start-up pack and progress through the field to reach the podium. This is
something that doesn't happen overnight - like all sports it takes dedication
and practice to get to the front. Remember that most of the drivers you
compete against started out as new karters and many have been racing for some
years to gain the skill and techniques that only comes with experience.
Karting is very much like learning to ride a bicycle. At
first we get assistance and instruction, usually from parents, as we try to
master the art of balancing on two wheels. After some time we are able to stay
upright unassisted, but during this initial period there are many incidents
until this skill is mastered. After 6 - 12 months we learn how to really handle
the bicycle to the point where the bicycle becomes part of us. We can now even
ride on one wheel instead of two!
Learning to drive a race kart is very similar the kart is a
technical piece of machinery it does take time to master not only how to drive
it fast around the track, but also how to set it up so that it can be driven
fast. The learning of race skills and craft is very important and takes time
to master. We cannot all end up driving V8 Supercars or Formula Ones even
though we might love to, but we can all achieve personal goals and have fun
enjoying the sport of karting. When the fun goes out of any sport it is time to
reassess. Karting is a fun sport in which the whole family can get involved.
The initial steps into the karting arena can be a little
daunting. What to do? What to buy? What is needed? What is essential now?
What can wait until later? AKS can take a lot of the worry out of the questions
and assist in making your move into karting easy and cost efficient.
The three main components to success are the kart set up,
the motor and the capabilities of the driver.
