AddRefuel 2014: Rattlesnake Electric Sport aim carbon fiber arrow at overall electric record

"I think we could do something, although I tend to show not tell."

18Racing dispute devolves into kart-flipping brawl

It's a fairly well known fact that racers are quite a competitive sort, not taking well to losing or things that they view as unfair. That's led to some great confrontations over the years, with one of the most recent being the Ed Carpenter and James Hinchcliffe dispute at this year's Indy 500. Few driver spats, though, turn into massive, pit-clearing brawls like this one.

14Go-kart driver can't go over the top

"If at first you don't succeed, try, try again." That must be the motto of the go-kart driver shown in this video. After an attempt to pass on the outside of a dirt oval track, he has a hard introduction with the wall (in what appears to be the worst possible way), but quickly shakes it off and resumes racing.

You know what's a lot – a lot – of fun? Racing. You know what's really expensive? Also, racing.

12Australian go-kart driver plays in traffic

From the files of "wouldn't it be cool if..." comes this case of mistaken vehicular identity. See, the driver of this go-kart must think that he's piloting an actual street-legal motor vehicle. That has to be the explanation as why someone would be crazy enough to take a go-kart on busy city streets. The poster of this video was on his way to Sydney, Australia's Kingsford-Smith Airport, when he spotted this very brave – or very stupid – individual. We're leaning towards the latter.

27VIDEO: MINI Clubman vs. Go Kart

The MINI Clubman is everything the MINI Cooper is and more -- nine inches more. It has a passenger-side suicide door and that wide-mouth split rear gate, but everything else from its retro looks to the 172-hp turbocharged four-cylinder underhood is the same. But is it the same? Does nine inches of wheel base ruin the go kart-like handling we love so much in the MINI Cooper S? The folks over at Web Rides TV were itching to answer exactly that question, so they pitted the Mini Clubman S against a

17Teenager in go-kart evades German police

A wannabe race driver lead police on a 3-mile pursuit through the streets of a German town last Friday while behind the wheel of a go-kart. The 18-year-old driver had all of seven squad cars on the chase, but they couldn't keep up with the kart's high speeds through the corners. The teenager even got the slip for a brief period by tucking into an open garage. When police finally caught up, the young speed demon was charged with driving without a license and driving a go-kart on a public street,

3Proper priorities: Four-year old gets signed to pro-motorsports contract

Top-level athletes are being identified at younger ages all the time, with most tennis or gymnastics prodigies being noticed by age 10. Over in the UK, motorsports are huge, and four year-old Ben Kasperczack has just been signed to a four-year contract with Motorsport World. That's right, 'lil Ben isn't even old enough for kindergarten and he's been granted unlimited track time, his own mechanic, and all the equipment he'll ever need.

6VIDEO: Playing indoors - Lancia Delta S4 on a kart track!

How many times have you heard someone use the phrase, "That thing handles like a go-kart." Well, in the case of the Lancia Delta S4 of Group B fame, it's true. The video embedded after the jump was taken at an indoor track. Killer stuff, and it had to have sounded incredible in there while this was going on. Wherever this is, there's some pretty sweet hardware parked inside the tire barriers, too. Based on some Googling we've done, we're guessing the pilot is Bruno Ianello, who appears to have b

1Formula 1: Scott Speed to race at U.S. karting Supernationals
