Yellow_shuttle should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Which pro kart

Hi,

Thinking of getting a pro kart to do practise days in budget is £1000 or less.

Being totally new to this what would you recommend ?

I have seen the following

Knight Pro kart
Biz 2006 pro kart
Statos kart pr 98 don't know exact age
Wright suzuka kart

Fromn these what would you recommend?

Thanks in advance

One of the most important things to consider is which chassis has the most support in your area, the closest/best dealer, the most other racers running that chassis. Just starting out you will have many questions, want to do maintenance and upgrades. Having a dealer that supports the brand of chassis you run, who is maybe at the tracks you run, can be invaluable. Having a large group of racers that run that particular chassis gives you lots of people to rely on for advice, tuning tips, setup, etc. Nothing is worse than spending your money on a kart that's hard to get parts for, or is different enough that fellow racers can't help when you ask questions. I think you will find, in general, kart racers to be some of the most freindly, helpful people you will find, they recognize that everyone starts somewhere, in fact when you ask their advice, they can probably see themselves in the same position, and will usually go way out of their way to help you. Maybe not the answer you were looking for, but.....
