Start Karting

So you are interested in starting Karting. At West of Scotland Kart club, we have a variety of people who can help and advise you. Probably the best advice we can give is to encourage you not to just jump in and buy equipment without thinking about the sport. There are a great number of classes (i.e. types of engines and chassis) on offer throughout the UK, but not all clubs have all classes at their venue.

Your best course of action is to come along to the track and see what goes on. On practice days there is no charge to enter although on a race day we make a small charge to help club funds. At the track you will meet people already involved and most people are happy to pass on their knowledge. You will also see “teams” in operation and they will be most happy to help especially if you are likely to become a customer.


The West of Scotland Kart Club track was built on the site of Summerlea Colliery in 1961.
