Okay so I'm not going be having a "karting career" due to lack of natural skill. But I plan to take it up as a hobby once I leave uni and can do it logistically and financially, but my one concern is the importance of being light. At 6'3 and 11st6lbs-12st I'm going to be a good 3-4 stone heavier than the lightest of competitors. My question is, do most competitions have a minimum weight restriction meaning heavier drivers can compete with the lighter drivers by having lighter Karts - similar to F1 I believe - or am I doomed to be around half a second disadvantaged to some of the field. Also, would fitting into a Kart be difficult too?
