An aspect to which kart drivers sometimes do not pay the necessary attention, but which, on the other hand, is fundamentally importance in the management of their days on the track, is kart cleanliness. Having shiny fairings will not be enough to make you earn tenths of a second on the track but cleaning your kart with care and attention will allow you to keep it in excellent general condition for longer, like when you bought it, and not only that. Cleaning the kart is a moment of analysis and general inspection of the kart to check that it is still in good condition and that no bolts are coming undone or dangerous cracks are being generated on the chassis, for example.

We have already indicated how to "Clean your kart after a shift on the track in the rain”: this time, however, we show you the "typical" equipment you need to keep your kart in order after every shift on the track and after every day spent on the circuit.


Whether you are cleaning, dismantling or reassembling parts of the kart, it is essential to protect the main tool of all human beings: your hands.
Specifically, cleaning the kart involves the use of chemicals, both solvents and lubricants, designed to treat surfaces and materials that are very different from leather. This is why, as well as to avoid cuts or injuries, it is essential to wear the right gloves when you are at work. In this sense, nitrile is a material that gives gloves high standards in terms of resistance, elasticity and sensitivity, allowing even people who are allergic to latex to be able to work without problems.
Whether you opt for disposable gloves or more durable items, it is essential to find out if the materials the product is made of are resistant to chemicals and ensure the right sensitivity.
Given the cost of the gloves, we advise you to try on different models and then choose the one that best suits your needs and size.
In addition to gloves, for maximum safety, our advice is to also think about purchasing protective eyewear and, when handling solvents, FFP2 masks.
