I think a street race would be a blast! I am just concerneded about the saftey of drivers on a street course: SO many obstacles to run into and cause serious injury. Karts just do not provide any driver protection. I believe most injuries are due to impact with hard objects. Also anything that can get a kart airborn, like curbs, are a problem.

LOTS of run off area is so important.

But lets keep looking and thinking. cb

If done right, (big if) it a can be very safe and great. The Rock Island Grand Prix over Labor Day weekend is an awesome and safe event. They race shifters to 4 cycle.
