Hello, fellow go-karting fans! My name is Gerrit and I am a huge fan of motorsports, particularly go-karting! I enjoy go-karting on weekends or whenever I find the time. Welcome to GoKartGuide!

More About Me!

Why do I like go-karts? We’ll there are too many reasons, but I’ll cover most of them! Firstly, there is no other motorsport that lets you race so openly, close to the ground, and at high speeds. While go-karts are simple in design, they deliver a unique racing experience that no other motorsport has matched. 

Secondly, they come in all shapes and sizes – from off-road go-karts and oval karts, to drift and drag racing karts. There are eclectic and also gas-powered go-karts. The choices are almost endless and each type of go-kart delivers a unique racing experience that I have personally enjoyed for many years! 

I first fell in love with go-karts when I visited the Michael Schumacher Kart Center in Kerpen, Germany, when I was just 15 years old. I was and still am a huge Michael Schumacher fan and was intrigued by how he started his career with go-karts, like many other racers.

It took just a single 12-minute race for me to get hooked and just a few years later I bought my very first go-kart. Nowadays, I visit different countries all over the world to experience different race tracks!

What’s The Purpose of GoKartGuide?

Apart from racing go-karts, I also enjoy tuning their performance and modifying their appearance. I’ve spent countless hours during my younger years researching various topics on go-karting and I didn’t want these hours to go to waste.

So I thought to myself, why not create a website where I can explain various things about go-karts and go-kart-related topics. On GoKartGuide, you’ll be able to find informative articles that are based on both my years of research and personal experience. 

I have dedicated GoKartGuide to building an online karting community and providing helpful and informative information, so that fellow go-kart racers are able to improve their racing skills, read through track reviews, and find the best karting products and also learn more about go-kart racing in general. 

Regardless of which type of go-kart you prefer, or what your skill level is, there will definitely be great content for you on this website.

How The Articles Are Written

All of my informational articles are heavily based on my own research and personal racing experience. I will often reference more technical articles to relevant sources and opinion pieces. Most instructional how-to guides are based on my personal experience having done these activities myself over the past 20 years.

I also work very closely with various private karting organizations, racing locations, and professional go-kart racers to jointly develop articles and add their comments and ideas to the content.
