Hearing the name ‘Go-Karting’ itself gives you excitement. Such is the craze for the game. Go-Karting is a type of motor game in which the players do racing in an open-wheel car which is called as Go-Kart. It is a small vehicle with the seat existing for only one passenger. These cars are available in all the shapes and forms. Some are motor less while others are high-powered racing machines. The engines are available mostly as two-stroke engines. But rarely are they powered by four-stroke engines. The racists should drive the car for a certain distance or a limited number of laps. The simplest type of Go-Kart is the Gravity racers. This is also the most exciting type where the racers drive down a hill.
These cars are allowed for use on the public roads in some countries. Apart from the traditional Karting, there are some areas which offer recreational Karting. The Karting can be done in both outdoor and indoor. In addition to Go-Karting, some places offer other recreational activities such as bowling or paintball.
