We get a bit over excited about technical stuff (sorry, we’re geeks) but when you see some of our specs you’ll surely find it hard to control yourself too…
The GoKart is made by us in our UK factory. We designed it too. Below is some technical detail that we thought you might be interested in. It tells you something about what’s inside it, what it’s made of and how it works. But if your questions are not answered here, please see our frequently asked questions section, or send us a message, or even do that retro thing, and pick up the phone (still the best way to get some action).
