OscarM2603 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Thanks for the heads up Davyboy. I've consulted my step-dad who has done a fair bit of motorsport and he's said that both Senior or Junior would be good. I can find a lot of Senior Max's but no Junior Max's. Would you happen to know any sites for kart buy & sell stuff? I've tryed a few but none have Junior Max's.

How old are you Oscar ? You can start racing in Senior Max in Ireland aged 15. Have you had a look at the site below ?

http://www.irishkarting.com/starting_out.php

There's also a buy/sell section on the site.

Another option is to give Noel Brennan a call for a full run down of how it all works in Ireland. I used to race against Noel back in the day... he run's his late father's [John Brennan] kart business these days/

I'm 14 and will be 15 in March which is when I'll probably be getting the kart. I thought the same that you can race Seniors at 15 but I checked on Motorsport Ireland's site and it said 16+. I've checked out IrishKarting.com too. Great site. I've found 2-3 Seniors in my budget but I'm not sure what the ages are with 2 sites saying different

After several stints of fun on a small kart and before buying a kart and spending your money, the best way to start is to take several courses with an instructor of your federation to learn :
- trajectories ;
- braking ;
- vision and anticipation ;
- how to overtake.
Applying this on a 8 or 10 hp 4 stroke kart is far enough to get the main basis.
