Go Kart Racing: Where the Stars Got Their Start

Whenever you see a story on a famous race car driver, when they talk about how he or she got started, kit is almost always in a go-kart at the age of four or five years old. Most of the time, these go karts run a Honda engine such as a GX160. These engines are often found in equipment such as pressure washers, generators, and lawn mowers but they are also found at nearly every go-kart track as well.
These GX160 go karts are perfect for getting young kids into racing. They can run around on the farm or on the local dirt track. They are rather inexpensive to build and maintain. Many of the parts can be replaced with aftermarket parts such as the ones we carry here at HLSupply.

 Here are a few videos of GX160 go-karts in action:

It’s nice to think that at HL Supply we will perhaps play a role in getting tomorrow’s Jimmie Johnson or Kevin Harvick or Tony Kanaan his start by supplying quality aftermarket Honda parts for his fist go-kart. We are big racing fans here in Daytona Beach, the World Center of racing, playing our part.
