Hello fellow go-karters!
Maybe it's a bit of an odd topic, but I'm actually really interesting what will come out of this. Personally, I l like the concept of hire go-karts a lot since I can easily drive with my mates who don't own a go-kart and race with the same quality. However, I think there is a lot of progress that can be made in this branch. For example, the long waiting periods in between the sessions and sometimes the go-karts are just completely unequal. What do you guys think? (I apologize for any spelling mistakes since I'm not a native but hopefully, you guys get what I mean).
Yes feel your frustration which is why i purchased my own kart and started racing in 125's at stony creek (non ka affiliated). I still race hire karts on a fairly regular basis.
An improvement would be more hire kart racing leagues. i cant see the arrive and drive format significantly changing as it's probably a good earner for the track owner on weekends.
If you live in Victoria there are a multitude of hire karting 'championships' that have started up thanks to passionate racers who have a budget of $1000 a year and dont want to deal with owning their own kart.
