Is like herding cats. What worked yesterday is worthless today.
My daughter is six. Being a racing enthusiast since about that age and having parents that wouldn’t (maybe couldn’t is a better word) buy me a go-kart, I want to make sure that my little girl has the opportunity to try out this racing gig early. She sees racing all the time, spending quite a bit of time at the track when I’m in the Formula Ford, and she was interested in giving it a go herself.
In our area, kids as young as five can race karts. They are called Kid Karts in our local club. 50 cubic centimeters of two-stroke fury and a carburetor with an intake opening smaller than a dime. The karts weigh 150 pounds with driver (and the kids weigh nearly 100 pounds by themselves once they’ve got all the required safety gear on) and everyone uses the same specified sprocket ratio.
These things scream to speeds of up to 30 miles per hour. You get the idea. But when you are six, this beast is cool.
