25 thoughts on “The Cost Of Karting (engine & framework)”
@startingkarting Im 20 yrs old and want to get into motorsport but have 0 experience what so ever. Im located in South Netherlands (go Super Max lol) and really want to give karting a go. Do i need my own kart, is it possible to rent, what are all the accessories i need to buy? Love the vids, cheers !
Ok pal so having no experience is no problem. Everyone starts somewhere. You can do both in the Netherlands. It depends on your budget pal. The bad thing for you is that the Netherlands hasn’t got a huge choice of kart tracks, the good thing is that the Netherlands quite small. I kind of run over the accessories towards the end of this vid. Though it does need updating I’ve been thinkin about doin a part 2. Thanks for the comment
@Simulation Station I just seen u did a vid a while ago on renting and owning karts. I’ll start with renting than potentially buying later on. Very helpful stuff m8. And as for the tracks, its not a prob taking a day trip to SPA
@Maxx Boban Don’t drive rentals too much, as its a lot more expensive than driving own kart. I owned a 14hp adult beginner level kart that cost me €20/hour to drive, while rental karts that are 2-3 times slower cost €20/10min. If you buy even a used kart & decide to quit, it will still have reasonable resale value.
@Str8representing beats EXACTLY. I don’t know why people are suggesting renting a kart. Where I am, you have to pay about $20+ just for 10 min of racing!!!! I would rather buy a used kart
Buying is usually not the problem, the running costs are.
You said birel wrong 😭😭😭
Did I haha how do you pronounce it?
Or race a Briggs lo206 🙂
I got my full setup used and ready to race at $1500
Otk class means original tony kart 😉
How in the world do these carts weigh 3-5 thousand pounds?
No they cost that much. I think the chassis and engine will weigh around 80kg but that’s a guess
@Simulation Station they all have to weigh a certain limit with the engine driver and kart
is it ok for a 12 year old to race in in honda gx160 in a top kart chassis
This video is very misleading.
If you want to drive as a hobbyist, you can get a used budget kart for €1-3k & its running costs can be manageable.
If you want to race, then buying a €5-10k kart is only the start of your expenses, not where they end. 1 season of competitive racing will be measured in tens of thousands €.
I’m sorry pal but I’m not misleading anyone here. The karts mentioned here in the video are all brand new. If you want a cheap second hand kart it will cost you much less. In the video I mention each kart class and show you each website I’m getting the information from so I’m not misleading anyone in the slightest brother
@Simulation Station Sorry, misleading isnt the best word to describe what I meant. But there’s so much more to karting costs than just engine & chassis store prices. Just this doesn’t really tell the story, or help much a newcomer
@Str8representing beats Yeah there’s no mention of tyres, fuel, entry fees or repairs
I currently hold the lap record at my local track and I regularly get top times on tracks I’ve never driven before but without any competition experience I can’t get in a team and at 17 I unfortunately can’t exactly afford my own kart without somehow getting a sponsor.
My money hurts
Would it be cheaper for me if I waited to buy a real car and race it at a raceway that is the same distance from my house?
The proximity of a track near you will effect your overall cost in travel and a convenience factor , along with your cost of a kart and everything associated with it .
The closest track for me is an hour away . The cost to rent a go kart there is much cheaper without all the headaches and expense .
Recently brought a 2016 otk tony kart chassis for £350 everything’s straight and perfect but engines costing a fortune getting a nextkarting rotax evo max to go in it and there not cheap 😂
I wanna start racing, I don’t have a kart and I have little to no information on how to actually start
