The World Karting Association (WKA) is a membership- owned, non-profit corporation formed in 1971 to regulate and promote the sport of competitive kart racing. They establish the rules and procedures to set standards by which to sanction tracks and to conduct annual championships for various types of karting. WKA has grown to over 10,000 active members and 120 sanctioned tracks nationwide to make it the largest sanctioning body for kart racing in the United States and one of the largest in the world.
The “go-kart” phenomenon began in the late 1950's as a fun and affordable form of motorsports. While the “go” in the name has long since been dropped by those involved with the sport, karting has gone on to become a recreational activity for an estimated 100,000 plus Americans annually.
Organized events are available to individuals beginning at age 5. Formal competitive classes begin at the junior stage (age 8) and generally run in 3-year age groupings until “senior” status is reached (age 15 or 16, depending on the series). Around 45 percent of competitive event entrants are juniors.
There is not a better way of introducing yourself to motorsports. It offers an excellent entry level for racing that is safe, economical, and fun. From the beginner to the experienced veteran, it is a sport that involves the entire family.
