From the Back Cover

Kart racing is arguably the most fun you can have on four wheels. Karting provides an essential training ground for future motor racing champions, but is also a thriving discipline in its own right, offering some of the most exciting racing in motorsport.

This fully updated second edition provides a complete guide to all aspects of outdoor karting, covering all the fundamental elements of both two-stroke and four-stroke international kart racing. The engaging text, supported by numerous colour photographs and illustrations, provides everything the complete novice needs to know, yet is sufficiently detailed to appeal to those already involved in club racing who are looking to progress to the next level of competition.

With the aid of over 200 colour illustrations, The Karting Manual includes details of:

How to get started in karting - including how to get a race licence, racing classes and equipment; Racing techniques - the racing line, kart control techniques, wet-weather racing and strategy; Preparation - kart set-up and maintenance, driver physical and mental preparation and advice on obtaining sponsorship; Useful contacts - including a list of UK and international kart circuits, and details of karting associations and equipment suppliers
