About Better Karting
Better Karting was created to help karting beginners improve their skills and to fully enjoy everything karting has to offer.
My name is Tony, and I grew up racing go karts in the WKA Gold Cup series. I loved going to the track and racing with my family and friends. I am not a professional nor do plan on being one! I have gained loads of knowledge about racing and go karts over the years.
When I became a Father, I wanted my kids to have the opportunity to enjoy go karting the same way I did. At Better Karting we want to jump start your go karting journey so you can start having fun with the least amount of work! Karting can be hard, and I want to help you push through those difficulties and succeed.
Whether you are looking to go racing or you just want to learn more to impress your friends at the fun tracks we can help. The detailed reviews and how to guides explain it all. Go karting is meant to be fun no matter what form it is. It is a great family activity that will build memories for a lifetime.
Better Karting was built on the idea of helping people understand, start and enjoy go kart racing. I started racing at 8 years old. We were a family that did not know much about go karting…. at all.
Actually, we didn’t know anything.
My dad was a Washington fan and when Joe Gibbs started NASCAR racing in the early 90s, my dad thought well why don’t we go racing too!
My brother is a couple years older, so he started racing first. Then I joined in when I was old enough to race Junior Sportsman 1 at Sandy Hook Speedway. That class was also called purple plate at that time. To say there were some speed bumps was an understatement. I think my brother’s engine almost fell off one day. We had a lot to learn.
Thankfully, the go karting community is full of helpful people. We met some amazing people that kept us from throwing in the towel. They guided us on proper procedures and practices that make race day go smoothly.
My brother and I both raced well into our early 20s. We were very successful on the local level here in Maryland racing at Nicholson Speedway and Sandy Hook Speedway. Nicholson Speedway in Chestertown, MD would be our home track.
My goal at Better Karting is to help go karters begin their journey. Go karting changed our lives. Traveling to the races together brought us closer as a family and created memories we will never forget. Working on the go karts in the garage built a bond I’m not sure we would have otherwise. Go Kart Racing is a Family sport.
I want the next go kart racer to have it easier than we did. By sharing my knowledge gained throughout the years. I will find different ways to help people understand what Caster is and what camber does. Or how to get your kids started in go kart racing and what kind of gear they may need.
I am here to help! If you have any questions or comments, be sure to reach out. I want to make you a Better Karter!
