Trophy karts

My 9 year is going to race the regional So Cal series. I was wondering if any other pirate members race the series? It's been fun so far and its been great spending race time with my 9 year old.

I can't speak on the trophy karts, but I raced shifter karts nationally for 4 years before getting into cars. Absolutely some of the best memories of my life being able to spend time with my dad and family. It was a real family atmosphere and you meet some good friends along the way. Racing is one of those sports that builds character and you don't get a trophy for participation, which makes a win that much more special. Post a pic of your kart!

I've helped set up a few but I'm 6'4 no way am I fitting in one. I worked at a go kart track for 7 years, some of the most fun and best friends i ever had. Also an excellent learning experience and teaches kids some of the best disciplines of any sport out there.

This was 3 weeks ago. No pics of this weekend. He enjoys just having dad time and so do I. School sports are fun but being able to coach your kid on your headset is great. We both left the track appreicating each other a little more.

^This! My pops is not a gear head in the slightest, yet somehow I ended up with the motor gene. The days spent at the track bridged that gap and made you realize that we all have our strengths, and where I fell short, he picked up the slack and then some, and vice versa. Thanks for sharing, never stop racing!
