    So i found out theres a place only 100 miles from where i live where you can rent racing karts and i gotta say im quite tempted. Has anybody here happened to do that before or actually race karts and would you say that its an experience thats worth 140€ for 2×15 minutes? Also im scared id find normal rental karts boring after having driven something proper :D

    Could 6HP kart be considered "racing kart"?

    140 Euros for half an hour? Good grief thats expensive these days for rental. Although blasting around in a 125cc is amazing.

    I took my buddies toni kart around london rye many many years ago. The geforce sensation and the grip was so intense i was gutted when I had to stop and get out

    Well you do get a personal mechanic/instructor plus a kart and everything else you might need (helmet, racing suit, rib protector etc) so it naturally all adds up.
    What i found out today tho is that you have to do a certain lap time in their normal rental karts before you get to rent one of the racing karts so itd get even more expensive for me :D
