There are many classes available through Karting NSW. There is a class to suit all ages and abilities. These include the 4 stroke class (4SS), the high performance TaG (Touch and Go), two stroke 125cc watercooled class and a range of others.

Before buying a kart research which class you would like to compete in. You can find information in the Karting NSW Rule Book (available below) or please reach out to one of our members who will be happy to help you.

Research which class is right for you.

Getting the right kart and safety gear can be very confusing. There are some great sites and videos that can help you. These are all listed on our useful links page.

Before you go for a run the first time we'll arrange for one of our members to meet up with you to go through a few things you need to know such as practice procedures, sign on, track direction and a check of your kart and safety gear.

We'll also go over the driving test which is required before you participate in a competition.
