    Hello,

     

    My nephew wants to get into racing and ive been tasked with helping out my sister to get them on the right path. I was wondering if the St Louis region does FJC karting or not. If not, are there any local clubs that do it?

     

    Thanks,

    Norm

    How old is he? AFAIK, St Louis SCCA is not currently approved/setup for 5-8 year olds, though that is more because we haven't had kids of that age wanting to run. 8+ year olds are fine.

    I don't know if Boeing allows kid karts at all. Someone here might know.

    I run the NASA-X club, Gateway Autocross. We do 8+ year olds already. Let me know if younger than that and we can talk.

    Thanks,

    He is turning 6 in a couple weeks. Any information that you can provide to me would be very helpful. I looked into indoor karting in the area and it all looks like it is 8+ as well. Unfortunately, both my sister and brother in law both are non-racers and I run out of the Detroit region so I am playing middle man the best I can.

    I'm not 100% sure on their rules and regulations but I have talked with the people at www.stlkarting.org before. I have been unable to make it out to any of their practice or race events because of my schedule, but they seem to be a good group of people and I know kid karting is a lot of what they do. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions.

    You might try contacting the Kartplex at Gateway as well as Margay Karting. Keith Scharf (Kartplex) and Keith Frieber (Margay) are at the tip of Karting in STL.
