The incidence of biomechanical pain related to Go-Kart Racing remains high, as high studies are not made due to the fact that racing with a go-kart is often not intended as arrival point but as a starting point of major racing career. In light of discontinuous racing pain, no theories about biomechanics have been suggested as possible contributor to solve the racing related pain. Perhaps no study has been conducted on the biomechanics of go-kart racing. However, the decision making process for the determination of the best racing position affecting driver’s symptoms has not been described. Therefore, the purpose of this case report is to describe the biomechanical reasoning within the go-kart racing framework for a group of four driver reporting different symptoms.

DOES THE KART FIT?

Abstract

The incidence of biomechanical pain related to Go-Kart Racing remains high, as high studies are not made due to the fact that racing with a go-kart is often not intended as arrival point but as a starting point of major racing career. In light of discontinuous racing pain, no theories about biomechanics have been suggested as possible contributor to solve the racing related pain. Perhaps no study has been conducted on the biomechanics of go-kart racing. However, the decision making process for the determination of the best racing position affecting driver’s symptoms has not been described. Therefore, the purpose of this case report is to describe the biomechanical reasoning within the go-kart racing framework for a group of four driver reporting different symptoms.
