Get to Know Your Kart

Knowing your kart inside out is the best way to improve your racing skills whether you’re a complete beginner or a seasoned pro. Learning all you need to know about how to drive the kart and how it works will equip you with the knowledge you need to enhance your abilities and your experience on the track!

You can find out all about the features of our Sodi SR5 Adult karts below and how simple they are to drive. We’ll have you behind the wheel and whizzing around the track in no time!

Features of the Sodi SR5
  • The Engine – The Sodi karts you’ll see at our tracks are powered by a four-stroke petrol Honda engine that can give out 200cc of power. Our Sodi SR5 adult karts, powered by 200cc Honda engines, can often exceed speeds of 60kph but this can feel like 80kph when sitting just 2 inches off the ground. They have no gears and are fully automatic, so no need to worry about the gears!
  • The Steering Wheel – The steering wheel is the all-important control centre of the kart which gives the driver complete control of the kart as they zip around the track. The steering wheel itself is designed to give the driver maximum grip and turning ability.
  • The Seat – The seats in our karts are bucket seats made from heavy-duty plastic and are fully adjustable to suit your height. If you feel like you are sitting too far from the wheel or too close, a member of the marshal team will adjust the seat to your liking.
  • The Pedals – Along with the steering, pedal control is another task you need to master if you want to finish in pole position! The accelerator pedal pumps the fuel into the engine and the brake pedal helps you control your speed. Our karts are fitted with a hydraulic braking system and anti-double pedalling technology, which stops you accelerating and braking at the same time and also protects the clutch from damage. The adjustable pedals offer driving comfort and allows the driver to benefit from optimum sensitivity and efficiency in braking and accelerating.
  • The Chassis – The karts are fitted with a twin-tube lightweight and aerodynamic chassis which keeps it very responsive, helping you regain that high speed after you’ve bossed your way around a corner. There’s also a rubber shock-absorbing system mounted on the chassis front and back for extra protection, just in case of accidental collision with crash barriers or other karts.
  • The Bumpers – Loss of control and contact with crash barriers and other karts are frequent in leisure karting. These frequent impacts can not only cause damage to the kart structure and components, but also present a safety hazard to the driver. To reduce those effects, but also avoid go-karts overriding or barrier penetrations, Sodi kart have developed an all-round high-density plastic protection system. This includes a front part, two side parts (particularly protecting the wheels and engine), and a rear part (exhaust and transmission protection).
    These different parts making up the PROLINE are attached to the frame with elastic support blocks. This complete system offers great flexibility and deformation capabilities and therefore enhance the energy absorption capacity.
  • The Tyres – Our Sodi karts are fitted with state of the art slick tyres which allow for more traction. This means you can take the corners with more speed and control, just as long as you are capable of keeping the kart under control.
