If you have been attending a lot of the top national karting events this season you may have seen a tv crew filming a few drivers and their families at the track. This was for a reality show called Kart Life that is set to air this winter on the truTV television network.
Via truTV's website:
Racing dreams start early for this high-octane group of professional wannabes. These kart-racing daredevils whiz 70 mph through hair pin turns — while navigating a sport fraught with danger, intense rivalries, and outrageous family drama, both on and off the track. Welcome to Kart Life: the competitive docu-series that mixes high-speed with high-drama, uncovering the intense world of kart-racing kids and their parents in the pits. Watch these families go full throttle in pursuit of the racing holy grail: landing a national ranking and a shot at becoming a professional driver. TV-14
It will be interesting to see how the show is edited and how the karting community is portrayed to the public. Whatever the case may be it will be great to see karting on national television. We will update once an official air date is announced.
