Go-Kart, an Italian passion
With the recent success of Ducati Corse in the World Motorcycle category "Moto GP", engines made in Italy have shown, together with the "custom" Ferrari, to be designed to be regarded as leaders around the globe.
Indeed, a bit like in all other areas, the italian manufacturing presents as well as a high quality product also the passion and determination that distinguishes us in achieving excellence and objectives.
In this regard, even in Go-Kart production Italian companies are moving and promoting all over the world, thanks to a great go-kart production using the best engines, components and accessories.
But perhaps this fascinating world of competition with mini-cars, called Kart or Go-Kart, is not well known and less popular because of the two sports quoted above: motorcycle and Formula One.
Indeed, karting is the simplest form of motorsports run with small cars with essential shape: tubular steel frame without suspension, wheels and engine. The sport, just for fun transmitting in goal, was born as a hobby but now is a step "almost mandatory" for those who wish to embark on a career as a professional pilot. Not surprisingly, the latest F1 exited from its "breeding garden" of the go-kart (Schumacher, Senna, Prost, Alonso, just to name a few).
The kart was born in America, as often happens, for economic motivations in 1956 where cars race became increasingly expensive and the number of participants (and especially the audience) was so narrow to seek alternatives. In these terms, the Karting was the dowry of remedy, at least in some respects, this situation by proposing solutions extremely funny but also economic and accessible to all fans of engines.
In Italy the phenomenon develops and explodes in the early '70s where simple manual constructions moved towards specialization of some companies in the production and sales of Go-Kart competition. The first racetracks were born and passion spreads quickly from young to older who do not disdain the emotions that only a sports car like the Go-Kart can feel.
Recently Kart manufacturers have always researched and developed new solutions, improving each component of competition mini-cars with high technology spare parts able to greatly improve the performance and consistency of the same in sports and competition areas.
Finally we have only to indulge in this passion with friends and colleagues in breathtaking races, perhaps without exaggerating for the weak of heart.
