When go-karts attack – Click above to watch the video

Ever see those Tour de France crashes that start with one guy in Spandex shorts face-planting into the cement and ends up with 30 or 40 cyclists cascading like dominoes? It's a horrific site to be sure; one that gets replayed dozens of times on sportscasts the world over. These chain-reaction crashes happen in motorsports, but the pileups aren't usually as robust. Or are they?

Beyond the jump is video of one go-karter who sideswipes a barrier, which sets off a wet track karting collision extraordinaire. The video is only 17 seconds long, but we guarantee that this Monaco affair contains all the carnage action you'll need to see to feel better about your day. And while the go-karts look like they're moving pretty darn fast, it doesn't appear as though anyone was hurt. Hit the jump to watch 52-kart pickup.

      it doesn't seem like the smartest idea to me to jump out of your cart when there are still more coming and smashing things up in the back..someone could lose an ankle that way

      Worst go-kart pileup ever? Or best go-kart pileup ever?

      The one thing I don't like about go-karts is the lack of protection, and this just reinforces that in my mind.

      Wow, that actually looks very dangerous LOL. They look to be travelling about 30-40mph on that turn.

      Guess I should pay more attention to Karting, could be pretty entertaining.

      Who does the editing here? The horrific "site" to see? What? I think you mean Sight.

      Also, "Hit the jump to watch 52-kart pickup."

      I think you mean "Hit the jump to watch THE 52-kart pileup".

      Wowsers.

        Agreed 100% on "site" vs "sight", but actually "52-kart pickup" sans "THE" is correct. The game is called "52-card pickup", and when you play it you don't say "let's go for a round of THE 52-card pickup".

        In any case, mistaking "site" for "sight" is truly atrocious. Ugh.

      Come on guys, let all go down to the go cart racing and race on slicks in the rain. Come on it would be fun the they are taping it? Why is America's home funnest video's here and why are they laughing at us and pointing even before we start? I anyone really surprised at the outcome?

      Haha - "Rain Slicks"

      and yes, Bridgestone, Dunlop, Vega, pretty much any of the major tire manufacturers make Rain Tires.
