Drivers wear a one-piece driving suit made of fire retardant fabrics like Nomex that must protect a driver from third-degree burns for a period of at least 12 seconds. Long flameproof underwear beneath the suit provides extra fire protection to the drivers. The suit has two large handles on the shoulders that enable the driver to be lifted free in case of an accident.
These are small, open and four-wheeled automobiles used in kart racing and are known as karts, go-karts or gearbox or shifter karts depending on their design. The chassis of the karts are made of steel tubing and may have two-stroke or four-stroke engines. The karts vary widely in speed and some karts known as superkarts may reach speeds around 260 km/h.
