The best route for the future car Champions, Karting is also practiced by enthusiasts who devote all their energy to it. The CIK-FIA Championships are open to drivers from the age of 12, with no upper age limit.

Although the kart is basically a machine of simple design, the high standard of Competition makes it a very high level sport where ultra-competent professional teams confront each other.

The spectacle provided by Karting events has an intensity rarely seen in motorsport. The closeness of the track, a succession of races throughout the weekend, constant suspense and the beauty of the struggle for victory make it an exciting discipline to experience for both specialists and the general public.
