0 – 100 in 3 seconds, speeds of 260km/h and an adrenaline rush that will leave you breathless and shaking, this is 250 Superkart Racing. Unfortunately it is the most under published form of motor sport in South Africa.
250 Superkart racing has been taking place at our South African circuits for more than 30 years. With grown men squeezing their bodies into a kart that is no more than an inch off the surface of the track, climbing out with sore ribs and no wonder why. Speeds in excess of 200 km/h and braking as late as possible, g-forces that can only be described as out of this world. What could be better?
With a power to weight ration up there with the Formula 1’s and the Indy cars, 250 Karting has been the starting point of a few of the current Formula 1 drivers racing careers. These pocket rockets have been clocked at 292km/h at the old A1 ring in Austria.
