People of all ages can enjoy the sport with children as young as seven competing behind the wheel. Karting teaches these children, both boys and girls, basic driving skills well before they are able to obtain their road licence. Many people purely associate karting with young drivers, but adults are also very active in karting. Karting is competitive, but it is also fun and family orientated, with involvement in the sport both on and off the track giving it a strong feeling of community.
It teaches driving skills and also offers people an opportunity to gain a career in motorsport, all in a safe and organised environment. Kart meetings take place at circuits across Australia every weekend at four levels – Club, Regional, State or National.
