Kart Team support is a Saltire Motorsport speciality.
Having raced at an International level in Formula E it became quickly apparent that the most difficult part of Kart Racing is gain knowledge FAST.

You can try to gain speed by asking people, and hope that the advice is correct. You can purchase all types of parts and equipment to hopefully gain speed. You can listen to all the pit experts that say it costs too much to be with a team.

Or, you can rely on a team that has been in Karting for 40 Years and has raced in World, European, and many British Championships. In simple terms when you begin Karting or when you are trying to improve at whatever level, good advice is very hard to find.
