Go-Kart originated in the United States in the 1950s. Initially it was a recreational sport, without any governing body. Until nowadays, Go-Kart has developed into a professional sport. It’s even considered a premise for many other motorsports, including the prestigious Formula 1 (F1).
Since last year, the FIA Karting has made a specific classification for Drivers up to the age of 16, participating in the FIA Karting World Championship and the FIA Karting European Championship for the first time in the OK category, in order to highlight the emergence of young talents at the highest level of racing.
