Looking for some info on getting our son in a kart.

He's only just turned 3 so plenty of time Laughing

Any useful sources of info, tips etc?

Adam,

I took my son to Aviemore Kart Raceway (on the left as you arrive from Grantown side) as they have a kids karting track and super small electric karts for 3+. Next time i'm up and its not sub-zero temps-wise i'll take him out in the tandem kart and if he's still up for it then i'll start looking into buying a small petrol kart and taking him to Boyndie.

When i looked in the summer this was the site I found;

https://www.bambinokartclub.com/find-a-track

Which makes it look like karting from 6+ in Scotland needs done here;

The wskc site has a pretty comprehensive section about getting into karting and the grades of kart etc.
