Insanely Fast Grass Karting

grass kart

Before go karts had engines put in them, a go kart or grass kart consisted of a few bits of wood and some pram wheels.  You sit on it a few inches above the ground and tear down a hill, using your feet to steer.  If you bothered, you might put a brake on it.

Here’s what you do with a ski run when it doesn’t have any snow on it.
Get yourself and your mates a few grass karts and feel the speed with a spot of grass kart racing.  This video shows the thrills and spills you can have.

To make a grass kart, you start by bolting two planks together in a T shape. Attach two wheels to the cross piece. At the bottom of the T, you will need to attach another plank but in such a way as to allow it to turn. This will be your front. Attach the two other wheels to it.

Job done! Now all you need to do is test it…
