There are some questions that sooner or later every kart driver asks himself/herself. If the answers given to you (or that you've tried to imagine) don't convince you 100%, don't worry, we'll come to your rescue. We have grouped together some of the questions that torment the minds of many karting fans and addressed them to super experts in the sector such as Dino Chiesa (founder and owner of the Kart Republic brand), the R&D department of Birel Art and Marcello Somera (international technical commissioner of ACI Sport and FIA Karting). Here are the questions they answered:





1. ARE KART ENGINES MOUNTED ON THE RIGHT BECAUSE IT IS MORE AERODYNAMIC?

2. IS THE MAXIMUM LIMIT FOR THE DIAMETER OF THE TUBES OF A KART CHASSIS 32 MM?

3. ARE KART WHEELS SMALLER TO BE MORE AERODYNAMIC?

4. GEAR SHIFT AT THE STEERING WHEEL IN KARTS IS PROHIBITED BY THE FIA KARTING REGULATIONS

5. RACING KARTS DO NOT HAVE SEAT BELTS BECAUSE THEY WOULD BE DANGEROUS

6. WE WILL SOON SEE KARTS WITH SUSPENSION
