Top best answers to the question «How safe is go-kart racing»

1. It's safe. Statistically, kart racing is safer than little league baseball per capita. With full fire suits, gloves, shoes, certified full-face helmets, and neck braces, not only karting but auto racing as a whole is safer now than it has ever been.

The majority of the risk comes from the potential for crashes, spinouts, and flips; all of which can result in whiplash or broken bones. The best way to avoid these dangers is to go to a track that puts safety first by outfitting its karts with roll bars or roll cages, covered rear axles, and DOT-approved seat belts.
