The English name of karting, KARTING, refers to "a miniature car with or without a box, the wheels independently and persistently contact the ground, and the rear two wheels drive the front two wheels to guide." Karting is the transliteration of KARTING in English, which means miniature sports car. Karting began to appear in Eastern Europe in 1940, and it was only popularized and developed rapidly in Europe and the United States in the late 1950s. Because it is easy to drive, safe and exciting, it has quickly swept the world and can be aptly described as "karaoke" in motor sports, that is, men, women and children can drive kart regardless of whether they can drive a car or not.
Karting originated in the United States in the late 1950s. Yamaha of Japan has designed a K30 go-kart specifically for children, which can be driven by children as young as 7 years old. This is the earliest children's kart.
