The Next Level Racing Go Kart Plus is here to help find the next Max Verstappen, as the karting cockpit aims to be the ‘first step’ into sim racing.

It features a karting-style seat, analogous to something you’d find down the local go-karting-for-hire venu – although here there is at least a fabric cover – placed upon a metal frame that can be moved around homes and test centres through the affixed lockable castor wheels.

The design is ‘built for the family’, which in theory means a set-up that can accommodate children looking to train at home between karting races, but also have adults hop on. Next Level Racing states that it is suitable for those between 110-200cm in height.

Seat angle, seat distance (via a slider), pedal distance (via knobs), foot plate positioning and steering wheel height and angle are all adjustable. There are two main driving positions, GO Kart and GT, although both are clearly low-slung.

Direct drive wheel bases of up to 13Nm are claimed to be supported, with the promotional material using both Thrustmaster T248 and Fanatec CSL DD devices.

At the front and rear of the design, there’s a kart-aping bumper kit, with some included stickers thrown in for an element of personalisation.

It includes a Buttkicker adaptor mount for those looking to add further sensations, and it’s compatible with Next Level Racing’s Motion Plus and Traction Plus platforms via an optional adaptor kit.

“The Go Kart Plus cockpit embodies our commitment to pushing the boundaries of innovation in the racing simulation industry whilst providing a fun and immersive racing experience for the home,” said Hess Ghah, CEO of Next Level Racing.

The Next Level Racing Go Kart Plus is available from today, 28th September 2023, for £599, €649, $599 ( USD), $999 (AUD) and £599.
