Go-Kart Safety Tips
The thrill seekers who attest to go-karting’s exhilarating and life-affirming qualities can only do so because they’ve lived to share their experiences. If you hope to live to tell your grandchild’s grandchild about the thrill of karting, please follow these helpful tips from Zen and the Art of Go-Kart Maintenance:
- All drivers must be at least 54” tall and have a tensile strength of 371 megapascals.
- When stacking a go-kart on top of a faster go-kart, make sure to use both hands.
- If the engine makes a strange noise, tell it to stop. If it ignores you, adopt a more threatening tone.
- Wear a helmet. If you don’t own a helmet, try Rent-a-Center. Ask for Gordon.
- Remember to take your allergy medicine.
