Safety first

Today’s vehicles can reach very high speeds. Therefore, it is not advisable to take a go-kart race as just another game. You have to have fun, of course, but not at the cost of anything.

Therefore, it is essential to think about safety: having a helmet, helmet cover, overalls, neck and rib protectors, gloves and boots for driving is something that will make the difference between professional companies and circuits that are not up to the task.

Circuit rules
